Only in the Midwest can it be 40 degrees one day and below zero the next! No wonder folks say we are hardy [or “hearty” – Minnesota nice]. LOL Our closets are bursting with clothes for any type of weather! How boring life would be without the excitement of our erratic weather. Walk down the street any day in my small town and you’ll find it’s a hot topic of conversation.
In the midst of the wacky weather and while waiting for spring, my husband and I have a date Saturday to attend the Minneapolis Home and Garden Show. It promises to be a treat for all the senses! Good food goes hand-in-hand with gardening. Since I also love to share recipes from my Italian-American kitchen, I’m always looking for something new to cook. Or at least something I can use to put a new twist on an old favorite.
If you’re in the Minneapolis area, the show is happening now through Sunday, March 6. More details and ticket information here: Minneapolis Home and Garden Show
P.S. Tickets are $13 at the door. If you buy them online ahead of time, you get $3 off. If you like them on Facebook, you get an additional discount.

If I lived in the Northeast, I would SO be at the Philadelphia Flower Show. It’s the largest indoor flower show in world! This year’s theme is “Springtime in Paris” and the highlights look amazing. More information and a short video can be found here: Springtime In Paris
