We’re skipping a couple of the winter months and heading straight into Spring! March also happens to be the month where my birthday is located. Happy Silver Jubilee to Me! There are several uses for Blood Oranges in this menu due to the fact that I have recently found a good place to procure them. Perhaps there’s even some illusion to the religious holiday that lands within the vicinity of my Aging Day and the fact that it will signify the end of Lent. I’ve given up buying recreational books and it’s been somewhat trying. Good thing I’ve got a personal library to keep me going!
‘Tis the season for fresh fruits and berries! In honor of the upcoming (and in some areas upon us) season of fresh yummies I hereby dub this menu “Berry Brunch”.
I recently did one of my fairly regularly scheduled look-through’s of Food & Wine.com when I noticed that i gravitate towards green plated foods and pink hued drinks. I’m assuming that I’ve always done this subconsciously but now I have Pinterest to point it out by putting all the photos together in one place for me.
It might have something to do with the fact that I was looking under seasonal dishes and that my summer veggie preferences tend to fall green on the color spectrum (Except tomatoes but I didn’t see any particularly exciting looking tomato recipes this time). Here are some of the web-harvested highlights in the green department:
When I was in college I remember a particularly drizzly day while a friend and I were walking across the parking lot talking about the taste of colors. I tried explaining this concept to someone they said I was just doing what I always do, which is apparently making things up. But consider this: what ingredients or flavors would make a drink “pink”? Strawberries; Raspberries; Pink Grapefruit; and in the case of this absolutely fantastic piece of GastroPorn, Hibiscus syrup.
If these images (and their corresponding recipes, which can be reached by clicking said images) aren’t proof enough that eating green can be healthy and fun. And, if Dr. Suess didn’t make Pink Ink sound good enough, I hope that last picture did.
