Ah, spring has finally sprung! All of my tulips are finally up (although stinking squirrels and rabbits ate the tops off of all but one already! How rude!), and the weather is finally nice enough that we can open windows and allow fresh air to penetrate our house. Fresh produce is also starting to make its way into the grocery stores, and its nice to have something besides apples and potatoes to choose from.
This is a fantastic meal for a beautiful spring day. It’s light and cheery, easy enough to make during the week, but seems special enough for company, too. I really like that it incorporates great spring flavor – sugar snap peas, asparagus, mint and lemon! It just makes your taste buds sing with happiness! We have been making this dish for a few springs now, and it just seems to harold in the arrival of warmer weather, blue skies with puffy white clouds, and t-shirts!
