Now that winter is just about to set in, have your taste buds changed toward more wintery foods, such as soups or various heavier fare?
I tried to remember if our diets changed when I was growing up, for the late fall to winter season.
I think that it was a yes, and no. Some dishes never changed, but we did have less fresh produce since things like avocadoes, honeydew, peaches, cherries, and so forth were not in season.
Also, I don't remember my mother making soup in the summer, or foods like stuffed cabbages and bell peppers. Those were more winter fare. The same with puddings. I don't recall her making any type in the summer.
Spaghetti, meat like steak and chops, and other regular meals for us, were on the table year round.
I feel as if I do gravitate towards 'cold weather' foods once the weather changes and the nights are longer. I do make and eat more soups and stews, and think about foods that are served hot, and may be a little more carb heavy. I also want hot cider, hot cocoa, and more hot tea than I would have in the warm and hot weather.
How about you?
