Spring has been a mixed bag this year, flip-flopping between summer and winter.
I made coconut milk at home using frozen shredded coconut and I'm never going back to canned coconut milk! Read my column on Whole Foods Market Cooking on How to Make Coconut Milk.

Our Balvihar group went on a hike at Chautauqua Park, led by an OSMP volunteer. It was right after a spring snow storm, and while there should have been a carpet of wildflowers, we were hard-pressed to find even a few.
A friend had told me about a family of Great Horned Owls that was nesting in a cranny on a rock face on a very busy arterial road that leads to Boulder. I drove by nearly everyday for several weeks but never managed to catch a glimpse of the owls. I was driving, you see! I was lucky enough to see them last week because they were gone the next day.
I hope the owlets made it because we had yet another snow storm that dropped over 6in inches of snow. That was the first day of May.
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
