Soooo ready for some warmer, drier weather to arrive! So I'm using the power of positive thinking to create my desired balmy Sequim Spring to arrive! Young fresh veggies are my inspiration with sauteed ginger, leaks and sweet onions, in some olive oil and farm fresh butter.
Nash's is famous for their own sweet carrots but we are a few months away from their carrot crop, so we are using some California organics today. I finished the saute with a squeeze of fresh lemon to add that Spring time zing to the caramelized leeks and sweet onions.
All we needed was a fine matchstick chop, a little farm butter and olive oil in the hot, not smoldering, saute pan for a few minutes of rapid fire heat and stirring. Kind of a stir fry minus the wok and the gas burner.
The balmy weather will come when Mother Nature is ready to share some heat but until then, I have my own little touch of Spring dinner tonight...the power of combining positive thoughts with amazing ingredients= a fantastically enjoyable meal! Chow for now!:)
