May Showers and May Veg
April showers are supposed to bring May flowers, but here in London it seems like someone missed the memo. This weekend a relatively warm and dry April gave way to wind, rain, and frigid temperatures. I woke up this morning feeling like someone was playing a cruel joke on me, and was frankly disinclined to even leave the flat.
But of course I did, and once at the market things began to look up. I may have done my shopping from under an umbrella, through chattering teeth, but check it out- the first asparagus of the year! I was so happy to see this that I promptly forgot about the weather, and Ive already got a recipe in mind for it. Im quite into absorbtion pasta lately (expect a recipe soon), and this looks like a great version.
Most of those onions will be caramelized and used in one of my favourite dishes. Ive loved mejadarah since my first bite, and Im partial to the similar Egyptian dish
