This evening we’re posting an “action shot” of dinner-in-progress. In the foreground, you see chicken sauteeing in olive oil and lemon juice, with onion, garlic scape, salt, pepper, and paprika. The sugar snap peas were briefly blanched and added to the mix at the last minute. Also on the stove is a pot of boiling water with fresh lemon pepper pasta. (In only two weeks, I think we have become firmly committed regular customers of Ohio City Pasta.) And behind that, the waiting plate has the evening’s salad and the blender holds a mixed fruit smoothie. After plating, I also deglazed the sautee pan with chicken broth to make a simple pan sauce. How’s that for eating a rainbow?
Anybody doing anything creative with the bounty of peas this week? So far I’ve been keeping it super simple to let the peas shine, but I’d love to hear some new ideas.
