My favorite thing about summer is having a fridge full of produce. In winter, I tend to make menus, buy the stuff I need, and go from that. In summer, I go to the market, buy food, and THEN decide what to eat. Tonight, after a sleepless night camping in the rain with my daughter’s 4-H group, I wanted something easy. I tossed together some quinoa, some new potatoes and shelled peas from Summer’s Creek, some hard boiled eggs from South Mountain, a red onion from MOMs (I flash-pickled it: pour boiling water over diced onion and then cover them in vinegar and oil for a bit, until they’re a lovely pink), and a balsamic/olive oil dressing. It was yummy and easy. The eggs really pull it all together.
