That I can have this for breakfast:
Honeydew melon is so refreshing and just seemed like a perfect companion for sourdough toast spread with an amazing goat cheese chevre from my local farmers' market.
After a long winter, I am so ready for the clean tastes of spring. The changing seasons are so beautiful to me, and it's pretty amazing how they directly influence our lives--what we wear, how we spend our time, what we eat and drink. I never once considered eating tomatoes (save for the canned variety) all winter long, and I can't wait for the long, hot days of summer when they finally come around. I think it's exciting that we have to wait for certain foods. And all winter, I sought out full-bodied, spicy red wines; I'm looking forward to lightening it up a bit as the weather grows warmer. Here's a list of 10 things I'm excited for as the world warms up:
2. Vinho verde
3. Iced tea with mint
4. Violets (they're here! look around you, they grow wild and are a tasty and beautiful ingredient to add to salads, desserts, or a cheese plate)
5. Lacinato kale (this farm grows the most beautiful kale I've ever seen)
6. Baby new potatoes
9. Wheat beer
What are you looking forward to?
