Easter weekend is just around the corner, and I love Easter, I really do, for reasons both religious and culinary. But here’s my problem with Easter in Minnesota: it’s March, people, March. And we are weeks, if not months, away from asparagus, rhubarb, strawberries, and all of their springtime friends.
Yet, every grocery store ad around has these late-spring favorites featured on their front page, life-sized containers of blueberries in print, “On Sale! Buy One, Get One Free!”
And this is confusing. Because we want berries to be in season; we want them to grace our Easter tables in all their springtime glory…but all of those !buy one, get one! Minnesota grocery-store offers taste a lot like Mexico and southern California.
So I present to you…three berryless Easter desserts…because really, it’s still more winter than spring.
And finally, check out these cute painted egg cartons - the perfect carrier for your Easter treats…and super cheap to boot!
(P.S. As you can see, Frugal Tuesday has now become Frugal Friday. Posting this post on Fridays just worked better for us as we seek to move to more of a Monday, Wednesday, Friday blogging schedule…and the alliteration makes me happy.)
