When I zoomed out of the house, headed to the market, on Saturday the sky looked like this.
Which meant I put the petal to the metal and proceeded to race the rain downtown. It ended in a tie. Big fat drops hitting the sidewalk when I jumped out of the car. Which meant the camera stayed in the car. But I did not. I had plans. Plans that included produce.
Red leaf lettuce for salads. Radishes for roasting.
Cauliflower and kale for a new spin on lunch this week.
Sugar snap peas because I had never bought them before.
Chioggia and golden beets for roasting.
Two bunches of chard because last week I only bought one and I forgot how much it wilts down.
A dozen eggs because they were arranged so nicely in the carton.
And of course peonies. Because life is short.
I am going to give you the details as the week progresses on everything I make. So far, I have sauteed the sugar snap peas in a very hot skillet with some olive oil, salt, and pepper. Divine. It is one of life's mysteries that I have never made them before.
