What's your favorite spring-time dish?

I'm more than ready for the heat.

What's your spring time specialty? Food as well as cocktails.

Margaritas & BBQ for me.

Our warm weather cocktail of choice is Tanquaray and tonic. An occasional pitcher of Margaritas stands in for the G&T once in a while.

Anything on the grill to go with the drinks.

Anything that showcases my spring big 3, strawberries, asparaguses and artichokes. (not all in the same dish, if you know what I mean!)

Would have said fiddlehead ferns, but we no longer live where they grow, rats.

They only had a very narrow available time in which to find them, but loved them because of the taste, and they meant SPRING IS HERE.

Fresh, very fresh, locally grown asparagus.

Double yolker eggs (am told they only come from young chickens, and cannot find them in the colder months. Admit, I don't know the first thing about live chickens though).

Raw peanuts. Boiled, nothing is better. They usually do not come into the farmer markets until May, but they are one of the joys of the season.

Some of the trees are starting to flower. The farm store is about to open. And am starting to think about all of the wonderful foods the season will bring.

Take care and God bless.

I've always been curious to try fiddlehead ferns but alas I've only seen them in the pages of cookbooks or on the occasional cooking show.

I'm another vote for the BBQ/margarita camp. I love to cook veggies on the grill using my grill wok. And of course there is nothing like grilled fish, burgers, skewered meat/chicken etc.

I also love rubarb this time of year.
