Peas & Carrots & Other Veg

Hmm, looking at that photo, I’m thinking that I should have bought a bit more at the market this weekend. It’s already Tuesday (where does the time go?) and most of that food is already gone.

I never seem to buy enough peas- at this time of year, I can’t get enough of them. The ones above made a tasty lunch on Sunday, tossed with linguine in a roasted tomato pesto. I used the tomatoes you see above in a version of this recipe from The Italian Dish, and the leftovers will be tasty with green veg, prawns, and jumbo couscous for dinner tonight.

I also love baby carrots, and buying them by the bunch seems so much more festive than buying individual ones, don’t you think? I’ll likely turn these into a soup, probably something spicy and Thai-inspired. Or I could braise them, which is always a hit around here.

One thing I haven’t been doing much of lately is baking; the odd batch of granola on the weekends has been enough to satisfy my sweet tooth. Though I must say, these bar cookies my sister baked do look delicious.

What are you cooking this week?
