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.
