This is a great way to celebrate May Day with children, and the results are beautiful and delicious. You will need some freshly picked violets, 1 egg white, fine granulated sugar, a sheet pan, a small paint brush that has never been used for paint and waxed paper. Lay out your violets on the pan so they are easy to grab once your hands get sticky.
If months have themes then April’s is Go Green. Green is literally everywhere you look. The plants are waking up and blooming, Earth Day promotes green eating, cleaning and living, and we want to see some Green in your mug as well. The Green Dream smoothie is on sale this week in our Juice & Java Bar.
|Earth Day was first recognized and celebrated on April 22, 1970. Senator Nelson from Wisconsin spearheaded the idea after witnessing the destruction from a massive oil spill in 1969 that happened in Santa Barbara, California. He gathered a political crew of 85 members and got it on the national agenda. That year 20 million Americans hit the streets and parks and our capital to rally for a more sustainable world and future.|
