Yes, I am aware it is summer and a typical summer recipe, this is not. Amongst the cold salads, popsicles, ice cream and grilled stuff – I had a craving for something a bit more hearty and comforting over the weekend. I guess because of the sage, in my mind, this dish belongs more on a fall menu than summer menu – but I just couldn’t ignore this desire for something other than another cold salad.
Although I am all about eating seasonal and celebrating the freshest local flavors, I am also all about eating intuitively. If your body wants something more hearty than a cold salad, if you are sick of the grilled veggies, or you find yourself wanting something more suited for the cool crisp weather of fall than the hot sweaty summer days – I say go for it. This obviously, like everything should be taken with a grain of salt. If your body is telling you it wants a whole cheese pizza, with a side of Doritos and a 2 liter of Coke, I am not actually suggesting you listen to that voice! You should probably kick that nasty jerk voice right out of your head space!
