Summer Food

Now that the temperature is finally creeping up by the single digit, our appetite also may fluctuates along with the temperature as well. It's common that we crave for hearty and heavy dishes during the winter, but a fresh, crisp salad during the summer. Heat often suppresses my appetite, so I always crave for cold and juicy food, like a slice of watermelon or a big, bowl of refreshing salad. Call me crazy, but a new wierd addiction of mine is frozen brussel sprouts. Hey, if it's ok to snack on frozen grapes, why not vegetables as well? Try it! It doesn't even taste like that funky, overcooked brussel sprout flavor! But of course, semi defroze it, otherwise you might break your teeth. :)

What are some of your favorite summer food that you're forward to?

My eating habits are very temperature and weather sensitive so I completely understand, although I've never tried frozen brussels sprouts.

The weather has been really weird this year though so I haven't gotten in the swing of summer quite yet, but usually I'm downing ice cream like all of it might melt soon.
