There is something about neutral tones that when paired together they look so classy and fresh. By no means though do you have to limit yourself to white t-shirts and khaki pants to stay ‘neutral’. Here’s a collection of some of my favorite pieces for the spring. ;)

Have a safe and fabulous weekend Friends!!!
Two food postings in one week?!?! You’ll see why I couldn’t resist this one in about two-and-a-half paragraphs. :)
Despite the fact that our current weather is giving me false hope for an early spring, I have lived in Calgary long enough to know to keep my shovel handy until mid-May. That being said, I am starting to crave anything that reminds me of the freshness of spring and this salad is absolutely a direct, express ticket to ‘Spring-ville’.
This salad is a combination of fresh, butter lettuce and spinach leaves, toasted pecans, strawberries, grilled prawns, quinoa, avocado, cilantro, feta & shaved carrots topped with a simple honey, lemon vinaigrette. So so so so so good!!!!!!
Here’s a link to the West Coast Prawn salad recipe which was inspired by the seasonal menu item of the same name at Earl’s. I was intimidated by the idea of grilling shrimp, but it was easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy. :) For those of you who puked a little in their mouths at the mere mention of cilantro, I forgot to add it to my salad (in error, because I absolutely LOVE the stuff) and it was still amazeballs!
So who needs a groundhog, above-zero temperatures or blooming flowers to bring on spring when you have this sunshine on a plate!
Happy Thursday Friends!!!
