Cold, winter days call for cozy foods, like soup and chicken pot pie. More than any other season, I find myself struggling to eat my vegetables in the winter. Let’s be honest- a cold salad is really uninspiring when it’s only 6 degrees outside.
To make matters worse, buying vegetables during the off season can be pricey. Shipping in produce from who-knows-where is pricey, but I’ve discovered that I can almost always find carrots on sale. When the weather turns colder, I start buying carrots. Lots and lots of carrots.
