The illusion of spring has been holding steady. Notice, I don't for a minute believe that spring has really arrived. But, with that sense of the new season upon us, suddenly my appetite has been moving toward lighter food. And with the season of Lent now in full swing, we need meatless dinner party options for Friday night. So, for both of these very compelling reason, I recommend making time for a Fish Dinner Party with Friends.

I'm still seeing signs of green and smelling hints of spring in the air. Yes, the weather forecast is suggesting there might be snow next week, but I can pretend that spring is on the way, right? After all, one of the biggest signs that spring is imminent is St.. Patrick's Day, and I know that holiday is just around the corner because I'm seeing Irish Potato Candy in the stores. But instead of purchasing it, I plan to make my own, because they're always better than the store bought variety. Try it and see for yourself.

There's a hint of springtime today. A little sun is shining. A little snow is melting. Sorry, I probably just jinxed our weather. But, sooner or later, spring will arrive. And that sense of spring today is motivating me to brighten our surroundings inside, since it's still too snowy to do anything outside. One place to start is with the table top when we entertain. Find tips for presenting the meal in a more attractive way, to arranging your buffet, as well as other, subtle things anyone can do to make a dinner party extra cheery.

Tomorrow is Shrove Tuesday, or the final day of Mardi Gras. You may have already celebrated in New Orleans style by hosting a Mardi Gras Party last weekend, and now feel the need to prepare for the more austere Lenten season with another tradition, a pancake dinner. If so, here's our family's favorite pancake recipe. I've also started a Pinterest board of recipes suitable for Ash Wednesday, Lenten Fridays, and all of the other times we need to dine meatless. Follow my Meatless Meals Pinterest board, and if you have posted similar recipes, please let me know, because I'm always looking for creative meals for Lenten Fridays.
