Spring Beauties

One of the beauties of having a real winter is that in the spring, the return of really good fresh produce is like a blessing. Especially when the farmer's market finally reopens, it's a huge celebration and I go a little nuts buying what little there is this early. It's mostly radishes, spinach, and onions of various sorts, as they're nearly all that comes up and grows this early in the year. But there's always one little booth that sells mushrooms that are grown in the county, and I love their fresh shitakes. They only last a day or two, really, so when I bought half a pound, yesterday, when I got home I prepped them along with most of a half a pound of spinach as well.
