After coming home from the Rossini Festival (which was fabulous by the way) and preparing tonight's dinner, I realized that every single ingredient is on my "favorites" list.
Spinach with pickled beets and fresh strawberries served with a balsamic vinaigrette.
Capellini pasta with pesto and fresh spring peas served with grilled shrimp.
The pasta is what I brought home after we had dinner with friends Cynthia Moxley and Alan Carmichael at the Bistro at the Bijou last night. Deducting what I ate last night still left us with two generous servings for tonight--with the shrimp added because I noticed that the Market at Union and Gay now has Gulf shrimp for 10.99 a pound.
A perfect spring supper. That's what we're having.
