Kicking the Wintertime Blues
Technically, last Friday marked the first day of Spring. Usually a day of optimism, chirping birds and springtime weather, our beloved Chicago decided to dump one last 6-8 inch heap of snow on us for good measure. It did not technically feel like Spring.
But I have a choice. I can let my city dictate my mood and prolong the wintertime blues or I can choose to ignore the crazy weather, pretend it’s actually spring and…
Embrace all the springtime ingredients
Oh, there’s asparagus, apricots, avocado, fennel, mango, you name it! If it’s refreshing and delicious, it’s probably a springtime favorite (or summer, both seasons are enjoyable!)
And lucky for me, we have a Spring Food Guide to help me along in my quest. No more winter for me!
