Hello Monday

Hello Monday.

Hello allergies.

Hello Starbucks.

Hello no air conditioning, and 90 degree day.

Hello 10 hour workday.

Hello quiet house.

Hello new smitten kitchen recipe.

Hello Food52.

Hello good china.

Hello milk.

Hello spring peas.

Hello top quality butter.

Hello lemon zest.

Hello simple dinner.  And hello tattoo I need on my forehead: simple is always best.

I’m thinking of marketing this as a sequel to Goodnight Moon.  What do we think?

To make milk peas for 4, you will need:

  • 2 C fresh peas (fine, use frozen if you have to)
  • milk (the fattier the better)
  • butter (the best you can get your hands on)
  • the zest of half a lemon
  • salt
  • pepper

Place peas in a small saucepan, and cover just barely with milk.  Heat over medium heat until just simmering.  Watch the milk carefully as it takes almost nothing to boil over.  Cook 3-4 minutes and remove from heat.  Spoon peas into dishes, leaving some milk pooling at the bottom.  Top with a pat of butter, sprinkle of lemon zest, and salt and pepper.  Serve immediately.
