Sometimes I buy food to just HAVE it, in the house, and to know it’s there, and that I'm prepared in a food-based emergency. A bit like responsible people who keep a fire extinguisher under the sink. Just in case.
In the interest of not inviting my own bodily harm at the hands of my acquaintances, I have decided to approximate summer to the best of my ability even when the weather outside is driving me to listen to The National and brood about the void of human existence.
Spring always makes me inexplicably mopey, to the degree that I sometimes have trouble putting food in my mouth on the regular. If you have this problem, too, I have a few suggestions for meals you can survive on until May.
