March Holidays
March is what I often call a "swing month."  Just like Wednesday is known as "hump day" March is a month that is still winter in some areas but starting to be spring in other areas. There are quite a few holidays in March for us to celebrate so check your calendars so you won't miss anything this year.  You'll find recipes in the left column to 3 of these holidays:

March 8: International Women's Day
March 13: Daylight Savings (begins at 2:00 a.m.)
March 15: Ides of March
March 17: St. Patrick's Day
March 20: International Earth Day (or Sun-Earth Day)
March 20: Palm Sunday
March 20: Spring Equinox
March 23: Purim (begins at sundown)
March 25: Good Friday
March 27: Easter Sunday 
All the best in food, wine, and travel.
Happy March,
Sally Bernstein

Crispy Fruit is simply 100% pure fruit, freeze-dried to perfection, resulting in a light, crispy texture for maximum taste and no mess. It comes in a variety of flavors including tangerine, apple, Asian pear, banana, cantaloupe, mango and pineapple. The freeze-drying process results in a light crispy texture that snacks like a chip, but has all the nutrients of fresh fruit. Crispy Fruit comes in individual, single-serving packets that are easy to pop into lunch boxes, soccer bags, overnight totes and backpacks.  Click here to order.  $1.49 each or $6.99 for a pack of 6.
