Fresh Pea Soup
This morning I went to the farmers market and stocked up on a lot of amazing food. One of the highlights was the english peas. I got to taste some at the stand and they were really sweet and delicious, so I decided to make Ina Garten's fresh pea soup.
It took a really long time to get the peas out of the pods, but it was worth it. The soup also has mint and is finished off with a little creme fraiche, which really makes the peas taste fresh and delicious. I also had a little extra mint, so I made mint lemonade with the lemons from my backyard. It was a great, light spring lunch!
