Here in Birmingham, our formerly mild case of winter fatigue turned into full-blown angst when we were hit with a bully of a snow and ice storm early this week. A day after the storm I returned to my apartment and was greeted by a bare-bones kitchen: a loaf of stale bread, a half-drunk bottle of wine, and a lone blood orange. After hours of maneuvering around black ice in the wrong pair of shoes, I giddily bypassed the wine and went straight for the orange—not my usual M.O. I think nature tends to have a pretty cruel sense of humor sometimes, but in the winter doldrums there's something so restorative about cutting into a perfectly ripe, vibrant piece of citrus fruit.
