Spring is Coming, but until then….

Folks, we are still in the dark days. I wish I could say that it wasn’t true, but as much as those few beautiful Philly days two weekends ago had me dreaming of summer tomatoes, it;’s just not that time yet. While those of us who are trying to eat seasonally are more than a bit tired winter vegetables, it’s cold and rainy this week (for now!). How about a nice pot of white bean soup? White beans cook quickly, even when you haven’t soaked them, and pair beautifully with carrots, kale, chard, potatoes and other winter wonders. How about some roasted red peppers or whole canned tomatoes from the summer? Give it a try, and know that spring, and fresh herbs, are coming.
