This time of year is filled with so much goodness. I have been busy with my garden and all of the other 101 distractions that come with spring. I just love this time of year with all of the plants awakening and blooming. All of this has led me to neglect posting my recipes. There are many days where I fix a meal and take a picture but then don’t have the energy to summons writing about it. Amigo here pretty much captures how I often feel
The other day we took a tandem mountain bike ride through Arcadia. It was loaded with Trillium and other spring flowers. It is truly an outstanding trail. I feel like I am riding through someone’s flower garden for miles and miles. One of the nicest things about the ride was when we were taking a break, I spotted a morel! Then we started looking around and found a load of them. We were with some friends and we all filled our jersey pockets as much as possible. I think our load was well over 20. We also picked some wild leeks and with our bounty, I ended up preparing a tasty spring dish.
Here is how I went about the preparation.
1. Sauted up 4 leeks with a sweet yellow onion for about 5 minutes
2. Added chopped morels and sauted for another 10 minutes
3. Then I tossed in some local asparagus until it was tender – 4/5 minutes
Meanwhile I boiled some pasta.
More happy things to report are that my Aunt has a new puppy! He is extremely sweet, smart and adorable. It was pretty amusing as I haven’t seen her in a while and we both ended up wearing matching skirts :)Hope you are enjoying spring’s bounty as well!
