To spring or not to spring, that is the question coming up in a matter of a week. All of our end of winter hopes is placed in one groundhog known as Punxsutawney Phil and whether or not he sees his shadow, come the beginning of February. Whether you believe the tradition or not, these Groundhog Toasts are a fun way to talk to your kids about the wacky traditions we have here in America. Oh, and they make for a tasty and easy breakfast too.
