Living in I Florida I may have things thrown at me for saying this but….c’mon Spring!!!! I am tired of the cold weather.
Hey…..We get cold weather too. I don’t live in tropical Miami…….I live a few miles from the Georgia line….. in the north part of Florida.
It is not as advertised for Florida vacations with pristine beaches, a few thin and tanned couples sauntering down the almost empty beaches. Blue waters. A lonely bamboo type bar set up to order a Mai Tai or Bahama Mama.
Monday we woke up to 28 F (-2 C) and frost on the field. AND a good breeze assaulting our tender faces. So yeah…I am so ready for Spring. Or a home in the Canary Islands for a few months would suit us as well.
Food cheers me up. Just about every time. My feeling is, preparing meals you usually reserve for warm weather can boost your mood when the winter blues have you by the….um……when it has you sad.
Grilled fish with fried okra and fresh tomatoes are just the ticket.
Doug starts the coals for the charcoal grill, cooks the fish to a beautifully bronzed and cross-hatched vision.......I fry okra and slice tomatoes. Maybe a Jimmy Buffet CD playing in the background. Why not.
Simple meal, fairly light eating (despite the fried okra) makes for a relaxing evening.
What is your go-to happy meal? I can think of others..... but that grilled fish is blissfully delicious.
