That shrimp – gimme now! Haha. And I wish I could cook seasonally… I stick to staples. I’m always surprised when I go to the grocery store and I can’t find something and everyone’s like, “Oh that’s not in season right now.” Never occurs to me.

Our favorite items so far, and keep in mind we have only lived hear since February, include: local heavy cream, frozen red peppers that our CSA farmers picked last summer and froze (gorgeous, delicious, amazing), fingerling potatoes, shallots, valentine radishes, wood fired bread, sheep’s milk cheese, rainbow carrots, and this amazing sprout salad mix with cress, radish and sunflower sprouts. My kids (four and two years old) fight over the salad mix. It is that good!

I need to dig them out of the freezer and make my yummy Blueberry Buckle…

(I ate at uchi suhi the last time I was there, which was a few years ago, and I can still taste the deliciousness on my tongue.) Especially after all the Texans shared their grocery store love last week… I feel like we need a SXSW:foodie edition!

Please tell your waistband I’m so, so sorry. We are legitimately considering spending $148 on the 10 pack for our wedding anniversary present to each other this year.

And I think maybe those of us who just eat seasonally (but unhyperly) have the happy middle down?

First of all, there is nothing more frustrating than buying beautiful produce and rushing home with it only to discover that it HAS NO FLAVOR!!!! :’-( Also, I’ve spent quite a bit of time in eastern Europe and LOVE the way they eat seasonally. They also eat very few processed foods and have far fewer food allergies. But I digress into another passion of mine.
There is a reason food comes to us in seasons! Thank you for this post. Glad to know I’m not the only one who thinks of this stuff.

It’s so difficult to know what’s in season where. I live in Austin, where there is a big local movement, however if I don’t get a chance to get out to the farmer’s markets on the weekend, the grocery stores make it seem like everything is always in season, everywhere. (And the food they sell may not ever see seasons in the greenhouses or wherever it’s grown.) The seasons are different wherever you go, so it’s often hard to know what’s prime for the pickin whenever and wherever you are. There are lists, but I’ve found that often I will plan a seasonal menu based on a seasonal list, and then not be able to find seasonal food in the markets. Eating seasonal is synonymous with eating local. If there is no local food culture to plug into, seasons make no difference. However, if the elusive good seasonal food can be found it’s worth all the effort – sublime! I’ve found my palette and cooking expanding thanks so much to local, seasonal food.

I’m thinking it must be amazing! You’ve just prompted me to seek it out — turns out I only have to walk 2 blocks from work over my lunch break to pick some up at Battery Place Market. Thanks for the inspiration (even if it is to eat a $12 pint of ice cream)! :)

I try my best to cook in season because it really does taste so much better…no strawberries or grapes in the middle of January for me. (FYI: I wouldn’t consider myself hyper about it.)
