Out with the old, in with the new! Well, kind of. While it’s fun and exciting to see some tropical-feeling additions to the seasonal roster, (from the teensy bursts of sunshine in mandarin oranges to the mouthwatering, juice-y bites of goodness found in persimmons), it’s nice to see some good old reliable winter staples, (like sweet potatoes and winter squashes) stickin’ around. It feels like our fruit and vegetable selection is taking a stab at mirroring the weather – a slew of cold days with a couple warm-ish ones tucked in there. Perhaps all the papayas can convince spring to come by faster, hey? (Sorry, guys – I am the kind of person that busts out the ballet flats the minute the temperature doesn’t have a minus sign in front of it. I love the winter-y stews and roasted vegetables as much as the next person, but this girl here is excited for spring!)
