March can be so confusing in New Hampshire – one day you can head out to the grocery in a light wind-breaker and the next you can be shoveling two feet of snow. There’s just no telling what this month has in store for you.
One thing is for certain, though; you’ll have to eat. Hillary Nelson has you covered no matter what the weather, with a recipes for a bright citrus salad and a hearty borscht, both using nutritious root vegetables.
And with the promise of spring on the horizon, we’ll all be itching to get out of the house. Take a peek at Chase Binder’s piece on Dover and head toward the Seacoast. With fabulous eateries, eccelectic shopping and plenty of family-friendly venues, it’s a day trip worth hitting the road for.
When the weather is less than ideal, do some sprucing up at home. The color of the season: green, which we’ll soon be seeing a lot of outside.
