Brew me a cup for a winter’s night.
For the wind howls loud and the furies fight;
Spice it with love and stir it with care,
And I’ll toast our bright eyes,
my sweetheart fair.
~Minna Thomas Antrim“Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius.”- Pietro Aretino
I just can’t help posting these winter sunrise and summer pictures…and as much as I love a good warm cup of coffee or tea or hot chocolate, I’m giving a recipe for a delightful little salad that is quite the opposite: it is cold. But it is simple. And sometimes the simple things, like the beautiful things, are the ones that win.
