I was off today, but that meant driving around, talking to purveyors, doing orders, etc. Melissa and I are enjoying a nice meal at the house, a rarity with our often-opposite schedules. Here's one of our house pasta dishes: melted sweet onions with peas in a light white wine-cream sauce with some chopped thyme and marjoram from the garden thrown in for freshness. To drink: a late vintage Paulaner.
What's happening now, besides some of the best weather of the year? Local strawberries.
These bright little beauties are red through and through, unlike most of those overgrown genetically-modified creations from the supermarket. I'm going to pick up a few flats tomorrow from Cottle Farms. (By the way, Cottle Farms has a stand on US-378 heading out to Lexington. The farm itself is on Bluff Road by I-77.)
