February is the shortest month for a reason, yes? But while dark and cold, in most places, it also feels like we can glimpse the light at the end of the winter tunnel, and never has that light been so welcome as this year.
So, what’s good to eat in February? What’s in season? Root vegetables, for sure. Hardy late summer crops that can stand the storage. And comfort food is always in season, particular in the winter. Think stews, soups, and casseroles. Think melted cheese (possibly melted vegan cheese?). Hearty pasta dishes. Roasts. Baby, it sure is cold outside….and what with the weather, make sure to lay in a supply of those winter pantry items we turn to again and again – canned beans and tomatoes, pasta, grains, broth.
Oh, and red wine.
