It’s amazing to think that a tiny, insignificant seed can also be something that’s rich with possibilities.

For example, you can take a break from the usual cheese plate by mixing up a buttery, herb-packed cheese spread and serving it with bread and chilled white wine. if you want to go for a Greek-inspired dinner salad, you can splurge on white salmon paired with spring veggies. Cornmeal cake with buttermilk ice cream and rhubarb compote for dessert would sound really good!
- Let an egg stand on its end!
According to the legends, the egg is able to stand on its end during spring equinox. There isn’t really any evidence to prove this to be true, but there’s really no harm in trying, right? You can just do it for fun.
