Fun Ways to Make May Even Better

The sun is out, the Texas wild flowers are in bloom, and it’s time to start enjoying backyard barbecues and dinner parties with friends again. Leah loves to host dinners at her house and make new recipes that her friends can try. This month we’re looking for recipes to make with some of the traditional foods we love. This time of the year, many fruits and vegetables are coming into season and they compliment any meal. We’ve been doing our research and have found some of the best foods to enjoy in May. Here’s a list of some of our favorites:

  • Artichokes
  • Asparagus 
  • Spring Onions
  • Radishes
  • Green Garlic
  • Peas
  • Watercress

We can’t wait to see what recipes Leah comes up with incorporating some of these delicious, seasonal treats. Stay tuned to the blog for them so you can make them yourselves and impress your friends! But, in the meantime, here’s an article from BuzzFeed that features these foods, more and recipes for them! Click here to see the article. 

Another way we’re spicing up May is through our Photo-A-Day. Each day this month we’ve picked a topic for a picture. All you have to do is post a photo of that topic to our Facebook page, Tweet at us, or post it on Instagram. So far we’ve loved seeing your photos of downtown Waco, food you love, and buildings around town. Today is art in Waco, so show us your interpretation! If you aren’t already following us, you can see our pictures on Instagram at Olivebrancwaco. Here’s our interpretation of today’s photo:
