Foodie Friday | Slaw Down and Smell the Daffodils

I would say Happy Friday, but waking up to the devastating news of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, it just feels wrong. My prayers are with the families that lost friends and family in this tragic disaster. You can see the latest on the tsunami and the after effects here.

So in an effort to lighten and brighten your Friday today, I’ve been noticing some beautiful colors popping up in our yard over in Rock Hill…our yellow daffodils have finally sprouted up! For the last three years, that has been our sign that spring is indeed JUST around the corner. When I think of spring-type foods, I immediately think of clean, crisp, simple flavors so this week, I am featuring a few different slaw recipes for you to try this season:
