Marketing on Easter is a delight; there are fewer cars on the road and fewer cars at Wilson's Farms, and the Red Sox are playing a good game against the youthful Mariners. For some reason, everyone is grocery shopping with small children.
- Saffron chicken
- Spring onion and fresh peas (from Sunday Suppers at Luques)
- Brown scones (also from Sunday Suppers, but from a different Sunday)
- Apple terrine with calvados (from some weblog this week; I thought it was via megnut, but apparently I was wrong)
I tried to remember the last time I'd made peas. I think they fell out of my vocabulary sometime in grad school. It might be worth getting reacquainted.
The chicken, marinated in saffron-infused olive oil, thyme, and lemon zest and then sauteed, was very good. The saffron gets top billing and is important to appearance, but it's the lemon zest that really does the trick.
