SAY HELLO TO SPRING!

Spring weather is finally here! Whether your area is full of springtime showers or sunshine, we can't wait to say goodbye to mittens and coats for another year. We've got lots of plans to make this April a blast, and hope you will join us in the fun with these "Welcome Spring!" ideas:

s Tip 1

1. TELL A JOKE

April 1 may be April Fool's Day, but the entire month of April is national humor month. Instead of pulling a prank, spend some time learning a new joke or two to make your friends grin (or groan if you like puns!).

2. EAT YOUR VEGGIES

April showers mean spring vegetables at the market. Use seasonable veggies in Smithfield's Braised Pork Shoulder with Onions and Leeks and follow up with an apricot or rhubarb pie to have a full table in a flash.

4. PERSONALIZE PIZZA

Being stuck inside on a rainy day doesn't have to be all bad; Gwaltney's Mini Sausage Pizzas are delicious and fun to personalize. Make a batch with initials or spell out the name of your favorite baseball team!
