refresh

This week, the café was filled with the remains of winter-hearty, comfort food. Soups bursting with smoky chipotle, toasted cumin and coriander seeds and the sweet, earthy notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. The ovens were filled with trays of yams, garlic bulbs, red peppers and tomatoes, all roasting for soups. Soup is everything I need in one bowl, and I never tire of making or eating it.

But this morning, opening the curtains at home to reveal sunshine—sunshine!—and clear sidewalks was a sure sign that spring is quietly making its presence known. So, a simple breakfast was what I craved. A bowl of plain, organic yogurt with a drizzle of local syrup and heaps of blueberries. It’s certainly that time of year when I cave to the quandary of food miles. Those b-berries traveled a distance to reach our table, but they were welcomed with open arms—and mouths!

I hope winter is lifting its veil on your landscape, hearts and minds. It’s time to refresh, don’t you think?
