Oooh!! Deep breath...June, strawberries...their heavenly scent filled the alt air of the farmers market this week.
And other than pickles and cheeses---strawberries, asparagus, and baby lettuce is about the only local produce we have in early June.(Must have been a hungry time for Pilgrim-types and pioneers? Before the early crops produced?).
I loaded up on fresh ricotta, strawberries..and of course asparagus. The farmers' stalks are not as perfectly sized, all thin, all fat! as the supermarket's but oh so fresh and sweet.
I hope to make a risotto like Tammy suggested, clipped a recipe just the other day. Arborio rice [fragrant], white wine, chicken stock...toss in the asparagus and some arugula at the end, lots of black pepper and Yum!
But for now I did a fast easy stir fry, the asparagus, a steak, slivered, a Vidalia sweet onion,lots of cubed tofu, green onions. Stirfy sauce, peanut butter, ginger....
Noodles on the side, made with green onions and sesame oil...for those of us who like a bit of pasta any time.
And..oh my! pink peonies. One must have pink peonies...in June.
................gone to the beach....
PS I saw the baby plovers tonight! On the beach. They run so fast I couldn't get a photo...
