|Purple podded pea vines and blooms|
It’s been a while since I managed to download photos, especially food photos since I have to remind myself to take them in the first place. Unfortunately, once I cook, I’m so focused on actually EATING, that I never think to record things until we’re stuffing the empty plates into the sink. But I did manage to photo one plate of purple-podded shell peas from start to finish sometime in June.

|Sauteed peas with shallots and prosciutto|
I shelled them while watching the news and stir-fried them in olive oil with a chopped shallot and a couple of slices of prosciutto. Delicious. To make them go a little farther the second time around, I added them to al dente whole grain pasta then mixed in some grated Asiago cheese and just a splash of cream. We ate it with a glass of wine. I love eating at this time of year! (Who’m I kidding? I love to eat!)
