Who else is tired of winter?

Seeing pretty, snow-covered landscapes and being bundled up in a blanket sipping hot cocoa is nice for a little while, but the cold weather has overstayed its welcome this year.

Though you can’t do anything to speed up the arrival of spring (which is in less than two weeks by the way!), you can start thinking more positively! 

Cheer up by looking ahead to warmer days

Here’s our tip for beating the winter blues: start thinking about all the delicious foods that come along with warm weather!

Take a mental break to daydream about the savory flavors of springtime. We’ll get you started with this list of tasty treats worth looking forward to!


The good old cookout: sizzling steak on the grill, big juicy hamburger patties and hot-dogs. Don’t forget to toast the buns! Memorial day usually marks the beginning of grilling season and it will be here before you know it!


Lemonade and Iced Tea

Plenty of ice and plenty of sugar, that is the best way to enjoy these beverages. A big glass of sweet tea or lemonade is the perfect compliment to a sunny day.


Ice Cream

Some people enjoy ice-cream during the colder months but it’s just not the same as when it’s enjoyed like it should be, in the summer. Whether it’s an ice-cream sundae loaded up with nuts, hot fudge and caramel or several scoops of your favorite flavor piled high on a waffle cone, ice-cream screams summer.



You’re probably not going to start having Watermelon until we are well into summer, but it’s still fun to think about biting into a big juicy chunk of this tasty fruit.



Even if it’s not your first choice in adult beverages it’s tough to beat an ice-cold beer on a hot day!
