Last Monday as I was sitting in my every morning window seat at JOE, our favorite coffee bar, I saw two of my favorite dogs approach – Milly and Zach. Milly always sets up a howl waiting for me to come out and give her some morning lovin’ while her owner, Stuart, gets his latte. This morning Stuart came toting a shopping bag along with the dogs. And, what should be in that bag but a taste of spring –fiddleheads, asparagus, and ramps straight from the farmer’s market near his country house. When we opened the bag the smell of damp earth and verdant greenery almost – but not quite – overcame the heady coffee aromas. But, when I got home my kitchen smelled just like the woods. You know what was on our dinner menu – here it is – a quick sauté in extra virgin olive oil and salt and pepper – the veggies needed nothing more – so green, so crisp, so spring.
