A Craving For Each Season?
I've noticed I get seasonal cravings, as such:
Fall: spiced cooked apples
Winter: tempura udon soup
Spring: green salads
Summer: fish with citrus (and whenever there's a hurricane report on TV somewhere I pretty much have to have shrimp grilled with grapefruit)
Who else and what? (For me the perennial summer fruit-and-fish craving is most notable.)
I haven't noticed that I have seasonal cravings, but I think hubby shares one of yours: he cooked dinner tonight, the first night of the year that felt like 'fall', and the night of our first rain, and dessert was spiced cooked apples. :-)
Fall: Pumpkin Pie
Winter: Spicy Hot Chocolate
Spring: Baby Green Salad with Bleu Cheese, Cranberries & Candied Walnuts
Summer: Ceviche, Raw Oysters & Beer
Summer: all summer produce--cherries, melons, berries, corn, etc., etc. I can't get enough in the short season.
Fall: soups, meatloaf, apples
Winter: hot chocolate, chili
Summer: watermelon, barbequed chicken
Anytime of the year: ice cream!!
