Cherry tomato season is finally upon us! May the feasting commence!!! Ever since I was a little girl picking veggies in our family garden, I have looked forward to the first fresh tomatoes of the year with the same anticipation most people reserve Black Friday. (Red...Wednesday? Why not!) Now my hubs is pretty darn terrific. Sure I've mentioned his culinary talents and yes, he is now officially a doctor. But there's a lot more to my man than that. For instance, he is also an avid reader, loves kids and has a die-hard fanbase in the online world of Tetris. But last week he topped the cake by bringing me the very first ripe tomato from our rooftop community garden. That's one heck of a man.

Hi. My name is Paul, and I am the second foodie, also known as 'the hubs'. You may have seen me in the background of photos,

So remember that last post in which I alluded to fabulous Italian cuisine on the horizon? Perhaps I should have been a bit more exact with my timeline...for three weeks later not a recipe has been posted. Why? Well because these two foodies and our pup have relocated to beautiful Minneapolis, Minnesota!

Have I mentioned my affinity for the color green? To call it my favorite would be an understatement. The main color for our wedding, the pattern on our china, the color of our first piece of Le Creuset cookware, even the color contacts I wore throughout college...all green. But even I had to chuckle at my produce haul this past week: broccoli, spring onions, zucchini, peppers, apples and avocados made the red cherry tomatoes seem somewhat flamboyant. With all the budding blooms outdoors and fresh produce indoors, it is the perfect time of year for some very green (and very good) enchiladas.

The process of moving is always stressful. Flimsy cardboard boxes and cumbersome furniture is cajoled into a truck before the inevitable breaking of some (hopefully unimportant) item. But the pre-moving? Man, I love that time. I get to riffle through every nook and cranny of our apartment, hunting for treasures and chucking all trash. I finally found my missing Valentine's sock (that mate's been lonely for a year and a half), gave away two copies of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels on VHS (why did I even have two?) and the hubs made $60 selling used medical textbooks on Amazon. We're slowly but surely downsizing in preparation for the packing, and that includes the pantry.

You've all played the Forever food game, where you pick one type of cuisine to eat for the rest of your life because you love it just that much. For the hubs that's Mexican...my man would eat chilaquiles, enchiladas and huevos rancheros every day and be completely satisfied until his dying day. And honestly, I could too...as a runner up. Without a doubt, my Forever food is (and always) will be Indian. Tender basmati, chewy naan, sweet lassi, flavorful masala, rich yogurt, spicy chilies....I could go on forever.
