Bon Appétit (March 2010)
We try to be upbeat about the seasons -- we really do. We're constantly reminding ourselves that each new season brings its own unique pleasures, its own singular beauty.
But we've just gotta say it: We're so sick of winter!
It's nearly March, but outside it's just as dreary and cold as ever. True, it's been a particularly fierce winter in D.C. this year (snowiest year on record, etc.). But we just feel like we've been one long slog through the muck since November.
What we need is a vacation. Someplace warm, someplace sunny. Maybe get some sand between our toes. Someplace with spicy, exotic food...
Well, that ain't happening. But we'll settle for these carrots.
