It’s Cake and Ice Cream month according to an ancient journal entry into M’s journal. But I actually don’t have plans to talk about that today.
Instead I plan on talking about my favorite early spring snack. I love berries in late spring. Tomatoes picked fresh off the vine in summer are the best. Pecans and other nuts in the fall are great for helping me feel like I’m eating enough calories to stay warm. In winter hackberries.
Spring is great. I can go outside and choose from a wide variety of plants what I want. From flowers, to wild garlic, to winter cress… But my favorite snack is easiest to get from a store. Spring Cabbage.
I like to eat large chunks of it plain. It is okay cooked up. It isn’t bad in a slaw. But I prefer to simply cut off a slice a little bigger than my fist and eat it, layer by layer.
What is your favorite spring snack?
Ps I started to post this before it had a title. I gave it one, but I think it is boring.
