My winter favorites are:
Balsamic Vinegar Dressing
Somehow, using these three foods seem to make winter eating, a little bit zestier, a little bit warmer. The green olives are not like tart martini olives, these are from a can and have a milder taste than black olives.
I use the balsamic dressing on salad, rice, cucumbers, and for dipping crusty bread. It has a strong taste so, I only use a little bit at a time. My last favorite I have blogged about before. Butternut squash. I like it roasted with some cinnamon and honey on it or I make a savory soup with chicken broth and onion. Either way, I can feel the vitamins and nutrients reviving me.
For me, winter is about finding happy things, lovely things, to share with others. I hope you can find some favorite things that are good for you other than the normal fudge and sugar cookies. My dad came up to share a meal with my family and I had him try the green olives, he said, "these are my new favorite too."
From my kitchen to yours, revive eating well, living well!
