Another Carnival season has come and gone -- but that means spring festival season is just around the corner. Boiled crawfish are showing up at the local markets, and the days are getting longer! It's time to get the grill cleaned up and ready for a workout.

If, like many of my friends, you will be abstaining from meat over the 40 days of Lent, I've provided links below to tasty fried catfish and shrimp, with options for onion rings and spicy fries as sides, and a tartar sauce and my favorite cocktail sauce to serve along side for dipping.

You'll also find a link below to a simple marinated flank steak I've been making for years, as much for the leftovers as for the initial meal itself. And now that I've finally learned how to make and shape pizza dough, I intend to double the parsley sauce next time I make this, and make a pizza with the sauce and leftover steak.

Perhaps this weekend; the weather speculators are calling for no rain and afternoon temps near 80. I'm ready for it. I did enjoy the cold weather we had, as the last few winters have been mild, but I'm ready for the trees to bud, and to open up the windows and let the breezes blow through.

Enjoy this week's recipes, share them with family and friends, and, as always, let me know what's on your mind. Please remember that food banks struggle this time of year; pick up a few extra items of non-perishable food items and make a donation to your local food bank.

Best regards,

Almond-Crusted Chicken

Almond-Crusted Chicken

This easy dish comes together with a garlicky sauce made of roasted red peppers and tomatoes. Almonds ground with breadcrumbs make up the crunchy breading; I think you'll like the sauce well enough you'll double the next batch and find other uses for it!

Grilled Flank Steak

Grilled Flank Steak

For those of you still enduring freezing weather, make this under your broiler; we're in for a stretch of warm weather, so I'm itching to fire up the grill. This simple marinade delivers a tender, flavorful steak; use leftovers to stuff flour tortillas; spread parsley sauce on flatbread or pizza dough, add chopped leftover steak, crumbled feta cheese, and arugula and bake.
