Irene and Kevin:

I have been thinking about a spring theme and will add these to the general stew pot – rice paper “spring rolls” with lots of young veggies and perhaps a goat’s cheese.  Anything asparagus, of course.  I usually think of strawberries as a summer fruit but there are lots in the markets – so I leave it up to you all – we will be glad to make whatever you think best.  At this point honey and lemon anything is a treat.
