Im afraid I spent neither much time nor much money on my market trip yesterday. Some old friends were in London, kicking off a belated honeymoon across Europe, and we were in a hurry to meet them in town, show them our city and enjoy the sunshine together. As such, my weekly trip to the market was more of a mad dash from stall to stall, in an effort to spend the few pounds I could find in my purse (no time to wait in line at the cash machine, you see) on some food for the week ahead.
Despite my rush, I was thrilled to see the first seasons peas available. I love fresh peas, whether in tarts, pastas, dumplings or salads. No plans for these ones yet, but I cant wait to sit down with a big bowl (perhaps in front of some bad TV) for some relaxing podding time.
The rest of the veg will be for salads, pastas and stir-fries as needed. Those eggs? Why something delicious and sweet from the oven, of course. Stay tuned to find out what- Im thinking an old-fashioned cake of some sort.
