I'm a little late posting the menu for April, but life has been rather hectic recently (again) but as always, in a good way. The clocks have gone forward and the nights are lighter, we just need the weather to warm up a little now.
April is "Garden Month" and there will plenty of people like me making the most of the lighter evenings and getting out and about in the garden. Late March and into April is the time to sow and by the middle of the month you will start to see those seedlings breaking through the soil, always a glorious site. "April Showers" are part and parcel to this month and the garden needs the rain to help encourage the growth of your seedlings so rather than let those showers get you down, celebrate them and enjoy a rainbow salad.
Easter is just around the corner and I will be sharing my Easter Sunday lunch recipe with you, I hope you've ordered those vegan Easter eggs!
April also celebrates the fantastic and fabulous bulb; the garlic so I had to include garlic bread on the menu, but their may just be more garlic recipes to follow.
Have you tried greenwheat freekeh yet? It's an ancient grain which is gaining popularity by the second. It is absolutely delicious and so easy to use, if you've not tried it yet then check out my recipe for Freekeh pilaf later in the month and see what you think.
Of course, there will also be the specials board which will feature recipes from around the world, so look out for them too.
