Tuesday, September 18, 2012 NOM NOM NOM: Thanks to Rainbows
If you’re lucky enough to live southward, you’ve got pulsating, prehistoric bounties of all manner of fruits and vegetables freaking out and available to you year-round. It’s probably literally falling heavy and juicy and ripe from trees all around, as you skip down the streets with perfectly pink cheeks and wispy ocean hair, doing salt tricks in the sun, a shell in your pocket, a flower in your tresses. Pin a beautiful red rose on your cute little nose for that! For the rest of us though, about now is what we call harvest time, and basically we get to pretend we are sunshine coast citizens for about a month. It’s beginning to wind down now, so I wanted to just take this moment to acknowledge and bid farewell to another year of the beautiful sunshine rainbow of summer (edible, and otherwise).
