We are probably at the end of Spring pea season. I’ve been obsessed with fresh English peas from the market, putting them in every salad and every pasta dish we’ve made lately. There’s just nothing like fresh peas that you pop right out of the shell.
Simplicity. It is something we crave at work, at home, and in all aspects of our daily lives. It is also something that I systematically destroy in my own life. I have a knack for making things way more complicated than they need to be. For example, whenever we have holidays or family get-togethers, I always volunteer to bring a ton of food. I’m not talking about, “Yeah, I’ll bring fruit salad and potato chips and guacamole and ice cream” (weird combo, I know). I’m talking about a pie with a homemade crust and ravioli in fresh pasta plus homemade barbecue seitan.* It’s always very much appreciated, and I love having a ton of vegan food options for myself, but it’s a lot of work!
