What's not in my kitchen? At the St. Louis Art Museum I did NOT buy the tempered glass cutting board/counter protector with Mona Lisa eating a hot dog (as shown in the advertisement above). I saw two cutting boards with Leonardo parodies; it was very hard to choose, but...
What's not in my kitchen? I have no bouquets of spring flowers. I love them. But I love them out in the fields, as in this photo at a garden we visited on our trip to Lafayette.
A beautiful display of flowers would be perfect for the space behind my kitchen sink, which now holds various practical, not decorative, items. In fact I designed this arrangement to accommodate a plant or a vase of flowers. But spring flowers make me sneeze.
What is in my kitchen? allergy medicine. Yes, it is definitely allergy season. I'm still thrilled to see the beauties of spring emerging after a very tedious, extra-long winter. But I can't have them inside.
What's not in my kitchen? There's no local produce being grown outdoors. It's just to early for any outdoor field crops to make it to market and then to my kitchen during this chilly April weather, though I've seen a few tiny bunches of gathered wild ramps for sale at very high prices.
What is in my kitchen? Some hoop house lettuce, root and all, from my favorite Argus Farms consignment farm shop. I also have some herbs from there, and carrots that farmers have stored in root cellars since the last growing season. I'm looking forward to better weather next month!

|As April has progressed, we've been able to enjoy grilling once or twice.|
These marinated tuna steaks were a great success!
I consider the barbecue setup to be part of the kitchen outdoors.
|Although spring vegetables aren't quite here, we did have a nice platter of|
crudités, French style, including grated celeriac and carrots. Good with tuna!
|And there's always pizza! This is a goat cheese pizza with artichoke hearts.|
Len's crust, my filling.
