By far winter is my least favorite season of them all. That’s not to say that I don’t like aspects of it. For example I would much rather be cold than hot. I get a chance to eat pumpkin items and the freshest apples you can imagine. Some of the best fruit and vegetables come from this period of time between fall and winter. I like that I get to make more food items that give me more leftovers and more options for food later on. I am so excited to have more casseroles, roasts, soups, and stews. These items all allow for multiple meals with just one effort. I love being able to make a ham for dinner and also being able to make a casserole and sandwiches with the leftovers.
Winter isn’t all bad. Sure, you have to deal with cold and wet weather and not seeing the sun for months. You are cooped up inside. But you also get to spend time with family and friends and now is when most of us get lots of time off for holidays. Plus who doesn’t like snow? I love that I can walk around with it snowing and get lost in my own thoughts. Snow is deafening and I absolutely love that about this time of year.
Winter is the last season I have yet to experience in Chicago. I moved here in late winter so I haven’t had a full cycle yet. It’s fast approaching. Speaking of, I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I moved to Chicago! Time flies when you’re having fun I guess.
This was a short update but at least it was an update. Don’t you worry your little head, I’ll start posting more often soon. What else am I going to do this winter while stuck inside but refocus?
