Let the sunshine in!

A few weeks ago, the sun started to shine in New York City. I was really excited about it, except for one thing - it wasn't really spring because there were still no vegetables at the farmer's market. Every time I saw another apple picked last fall, I just wanted to scream. "Where are all the spring vegetables?!?!" my brain would say. "Can't eat more potatoes........aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!"

Well halle-freaking-lujah, ramps and green garlic have arrived in Union Square. I came home with some treats:

There's a mix of microgreens, ramps (like onions/garlic/scallions mixed together) and a tiny gold medallion of chocolate covered goat cheese.

I might finally be inspired to cook something now.
