Another reason why I delight in spring: The downtown farmers market opened in March. It's part of my Saturday morning routine, although I need to work on getting there closer to 8 AM when it opens. The crowds are intense by mid-morning. Last weekend I tried doing a bike + MAX (train) combo to get there and back. It was lots of fun riding both forms of transportation with a basket overflowing with greens.
Farmers Market Omelet: Two duck eggs, leftover roasted asparagus, a little Swiss cheese, sea salt, pepper. All nicely sauteed in some of my favorite ghee. Yum.
