something so delicious and simple and comforting like this salad. it’s the winter version of the classic tomato mozzarella caprese. persimmon are probably the fruit i love the most in winter. they’re super healthy, too. and yes, i like them for breakfast, snack in between, lunch and dinner. persimmon around the clock.
speaking of clock, can you believe it’s almost december…? though i am kind of in a christmassy mood already, i still can’t believe the year is almost over. i am going over my mental check list: gifts, greeting cards, dinners, festivities, travel, guests, decoration, shopping. repeat! every now and then it’s just nice to relax and unwind a little. i’ll make sure to enjoy the weekend and the countdown to christmas as much as possible.
