Delicious shrimp and mushroom stir fry in peanut butter…

Snow has started to melt and greenery has started to emerge, hence we thought of embracing the winter one more time before it’s all gone. On Sunday afternoon we headed for a snow hike on a trial near to our house. It was such a beautiful sunny day, it wasn’t cold and  we enjoyed every bit of our hike. Now, I am so ready to welcome the Summer. Sharing some of the pictures that I’d clicked while hiking.
