Most people would declare winter as their least favorite season, and not just because of the cloudy grey skies, frequent illness, and lack of sunshine. Winter seems to be the season of culinary deprivation, when nothing grows and everything looks pale. But grocery shopping is not as grim as you might think as Mother Nature compensates in the shape of vitamin-packed, multi-flavored citrus fruits. It looks like you've been busy creating both sweet and savory delights with all the winter citruses. Here are your best pictures of the week:
