beautiful asparagus heads
First up was a stop at Starbucks - a grande nonfat chai would fight off the early spring air perfectly.
I wandered the square, taking in the flats of perennials, the rows of jewel-toned jars of preserves, and the vibrant greens of the asparagus, ramps, lettuces, and spinach. I wanted one of everything, but thought better of it when I remembered the crisper drawer full of produce already at home.
I managed to get away with a beautiful bunch of young kale, a pound of fat, tender asparagus, spring onions, and a quarter pound of the meatiest morels I have ever seen. Oh, and a beef stick for Ryan. Always.
I'm definitely feeling inspired by my bounty for menu planning this week!
