New home, new local produce!

So, I’m not sure if all who are reading this know, but Ben and I are moving to California in less than a month!! Aside from where we’ll live, where we’ll work, and every other important question on our minds, I’ve been thinking a lot about how my cooking will change! You know, I LOVE my vegetables and I’m excited to try some new stuff.

We are moving to the San Diego area, and lucky for me, there’s a farmers market twice a week — YEAR ROUND– and I plan to attend as many as I can. I was doing a little research to see what is in season and when, and found this great chart that I thought fellow readers might be interested in!

Looking at the chart, I’m bummed asparagus isn’t in season more! I LOVE asparagus, and once you’ve had the freshest it’s so hard to go back to store-bought. Size, taste or color are incomparable!

I am also excited to see what’s going to be new in CaliĀ  because I have been feeling rather bored with my cooking lately. Perhaps I just need to learn how to use more vegetables, but my creativity has been lacking (this is also why I haven’t posted in a while!). Perhaps a change of local fresh fare and scenery will inspire a new cook within me!
