Welcome to Food and Wine Wednesday!

Yes, the days are getting a bit longer and the weather warmer. It’s usually at this time of the year that I’m downright jumping up and down waiting for summer to get here. Why? It’s all about the food, babe! Fresh summer fruit and veggies. Grilled meats. Outdoor dining. Need I say more?

Yeah, okay, maybe I need a life, but then again, I’m a Foodie Wannabe, so food’s become pretty important to me these days. 🙂 Especially when I really stop and think about the flavor of a tomato now versus what it’ll be in five or six months. Don’t know about you, but I think there’s a HUGE difference.

Of course, we’re lucky to live in a part of the world with fabulous farmers’ markets, so the freshness is always a short drive away. Check out these pics from last year:

Gorgeous, huh? I can barely wait until our local farmer’s market opens up again!

Well, for however long the newly awakened foodie-wannabe in me lasts, I’m soaking it up. Life, it’s said, starts with food. And, wow, I can’t think of a better place to be than the good ole Pacific Northwest when it comes to good eats!

Do you like to cook? What’s your favorite time of (cooking) year?

Happy eating,
