Edna: Folks, you know what I like best about this time of year? The fresh fruits and vegetables that our neighbors are starting to get in their gardens. Mrs. Tynsdale down the lane brought over some new strawberries; my lands, those are tasty! I'm thinking of using them in a lemon strawberry parfait tonight for dessert.
What's your favorite springtime dish, Margie?
Margie: Well, I'm mad because things keep getting more expensive. I'm glad somebody brought strawberries because we sure won't be able to afford them at the store.
Springtime makes me crave simple things like my favorite fruit salad.
Edna: I think that's your body's way of telling you that you didn't get enough roughage over the winter. I will say, that recipe sounds good. Mrs. Tynsdale also brought over some fresh asparagus, what should we do with that?
Margie: I don't like getting roughed up, nitwit. I do so love asparagus. Let's make my Creamy Fettucine recipe with all the veggies in it. That makes me hungry.
Edna, we need to let all our neighbors know that we'll take all the fresh produce they want to give us. I'll ask Pastor to put that on the Prayer list too.
Edna: I think that's a fine idea, why don't you go call him? I'll get started cooking, maybe all of the vitamins and minerals from the fresh produce will sweeten your disposition.
