I live on the ocean, write women's fiction, love to read so much that it's an addiction rather than a hobby (I read an average of a book a day). I live on the wet west coast so it's a good thing that I like to walk in the rain.
There aren't many fruits that are better in the winter than they are in the summer - but here in the Pacific Northwest, grapes are always better in the winter. They're big and firm and incredibly juicy.
Normally, I'm a fan of the big green grapes - which are what we mostly get in the summer - but this winter I've fallen in love with the red globe grapes. I could eat a pound of them every day, they're that good.
When you bite into them, they pop in your mouth, and then there's a burst of sweet lush juice and the texture - oh my god, they're amazing.
I'm buying new grapes every couple of days. I'm going to eat them every day until they're gone.
