Baked potato

Potato; asparagus, favas, garlic scapes; olive oil, salt, pepper; lettuces, arugula


THERE ARE NOT MANY BETTER THINGS than a baked potato. Lindsey likes yams; I don't: I'm a baked potato guy. Bake it; slit it; squeeze the ends to open it; pour in some olive oil; crumble in a good pinch of good sea salt.

But we need vegetables, too. Lindsey sautéed a mess of fava beans, asparagus, and garlic scapes, a specialty of this season, subtle and assertive at the same time.


And salad, of course; more lettuce and arugula from our own garden. It's a nice time of year!
