What’s going on outside my kitchen this month dominates everything right now. In the past week, more than 40 inches (about 1 meter) of snow has fallen on Boston and another storm is supposed to arrive tomorrow. These icicles have taken up residence in the past few days – the opposite of what Celia at figjamandlimecordial, the In My Kitchen host extraordinaire, must be experiencing in Australia this month.
Though soup and tea help soothe after rounds of snow shoveling, I’m trying to think tropical by blaring reggae as I cook and buying produce from warmer climes. My husband recently brought this orchid into the kitchen for a contrast with the outdoor landscape of white and gray.
In short, I’m making the best of a frozen season, but I eagerly await those first sprigs of mint to poke up in my garden!
