Odds and ends.

On Saturday morning, I arrived home from the Greenmarket absolutely famished. I peeked in the fridge and found about a quarter pound of asparagus, a single, already boiled La Ratte potato, and a dozen eggs.

The solution? An improvised version of home fries, made with a bit of olive oil and some leeks, with a fair bit of pepper thrown in for good measure. Asparagus blanched and topped with a light dressing of white wine vinegar, olive oil and a smidge of grated parmesan. Eggs scrambled with the rest of those leeks and a touch of creme fraiche, topped with chives.

The result? Pure deliciousness. I might have to have it again for dinner tonight.

Those are insane asparagus! Much more robust and gorgeous than what I've ever seen here! Delightful. :)
