This time of the year, I am positively itching to get back to our weekly public market trips. I aspire to be one of those hit-the-market-even-in-the-snow kinda gals, but at his juncture, that just doesn’t make sense. Perhaps someday.

Either way, we are back in market mode, and not a moment too soon! A remembers it perfectly from last year, which really helps my case when I have to convince J to go (it’s really not his favorite thing!). But she bats those big Disney eyes of hers and he can’t possibly say no!

My perfect summer Saturdays always begin with a trip to the market. We try to get their early, but usually we arrive around 8am and if the weather is nice, it’s already pretty packed.

I constantly find myself getting inspired to make all sorts of new dishes from a simple walk through the stalls with my coffee in hand. The specialty food shops also draw me in (I’d eat my weight in imported cheese, no questions asked!).

Now that the spring produce is finally making it’s way out and I am so ready for all the veggies and all  the grilling. And they are even open on Sundays in May to get flowers. It makes me seriously hope I can keep some of the flowers I intend to plant alive for once!

Now I make this recipe all-year-around. But since peas are in season, I had to update this post with new photos.

With all the recipe creating and testing that I do, you’d think we would have a constant flow of variety in our meal plans. And to an extent we do. I’m all for trying new things. But I also have the old stand-bys.

You know the ones. Recipes that are super easy to put together with items that you always have on hand. The always come out tasting fantastic and the whole family is thrilled when they are part of the menu.

I’m always amazed by the way a few simple ingredients can be put together to produce the most delicious results. I’ve never really been a huge a fan of onions- I love the flavor, but the texture doesn’t really do it for me. So as a kid, I steered clear of foods with pieces of onion. But somehow my sweet Grandma Rosie managed to get me to try these peas, and the onions had cooked down to the point that they weren’t even noticeable. Needless to say, I was hooked.

This is now one of my go-to veggie side dishes. It’s the perfect week night side dish. Just throw it together quickly and you’re ready to go!
