It's definitely a tough time a year when it comes to cooking too. We are getting tired of the heavier winter dishes and have eaten our way through most of what we preserved last summer. It is still another few weeks until our farmers markets open and we start seeing the first of the spring greens. Since we are trying to eat more seasonably and locally, we try to avoid the rack of California strawberries in the grocery store as we wait for the sweetest, little local strawberries that will finally arrive in late May. We bookmark those asparagus recipes bloggers in warmer climes are posting as we eat one more soup full of kale and canned tomatoes. I'm not saying we don't eat well year round, it's just that at the change of seasons we are so over last seasons food and ready for the next to start (yes, come back here in September and we'll be happy to start eating fall and winter food). As I write this the weather service has just issued yet another winter storm warning for us, 6 plus inches of snow in April!? Someone hand me that Spring issue of Bon Appetit....
