Are you a seasonal food lover? I am. I look forward to that first really ripe cantaloupe. And in the summer I eat cheese and tomato sandwiches ummm, pretty much every day. But there are two really special seasonal food items in my life.
The first is Cadbury Cream Eggs. Do you remember your first? I do. It seems as though each year they appear earlier and earlier. I fully expect to see Easter candy on December 26th this year. When I was younger (and before they started appearing in January), I would go to the drugstore the day after Easter and buy the ENTIRE box at 50% off. I would then put them in my parent's freezer. And every Sunday, I would go to the basement freezer and pull an egg out for myself. Remember this, mom and dad? Sometimes I would wait for it to thaw. Sometimes I would eat it immediately. But I'm pretty sure I never shared.
The other item I look forward to all year is clemintines. The first good batch (they come out in Octoberish, but around here those are full of seeds and really bitter). I got my first good batch last week. You know the kind, easy to peel, no seeds, sweet with just a hint of bitter. Yummy. I remember eating them before, during and after skating practice. I remember eating them at halftime of our basketball games. Love them.
Hope you have a seasonal food you are enjoying now...Egg nog anyone?
