Welcoming Spring: grills, bills and thrills

The cats have been feeling their oats lately, playing just a bit more vigorously than usual and sleeping just as hard…

ZZZZZZZ-Whaaa..?

We’ve been going out more and more ourselves, spending most of this past Saturday at Golden Gate Park, starting with grilled fish, shrimp and carne asada in the meadow across from Mallard Lake. We had marinated the shrimp in a mix of Clementine-tangerine juice mixed with lime juice, brown sugar, thinly sliced shallots and shredded ginger which all came out deliciously fresh tasting.

Filets of sole and carne asada, with blackened seasoning on the fish.

Grilled peppers and beer, dried bread crumbs for our hosts.

Three hours later, we took a stroll around Mallard Lake where we saw this beautiful Blue Heron:

Looking for parking around the Arboretum, I decided to drive around Stow Lake where we saw these geese with their goslings:
