Salmon Saturday

Eastside Road, May 28, 2016—

YES: SATURDAY, farm market day in Healdsburg. I madeit a very quick trip; hardly conversed with anyone. First to buy today's salmon, and happy to find the price down a bit, the fish even brighter-looking. Dave was out on his boat, as seems usual these days — in fact I haven't seen him for quite a while: the younger generation presides over the till.

Then to Burt and Mary's stand, for a last head of red oakleaf lettuce — I was lucky to get that; next week I'd better be earlier. And a bunch of Nantes carrots, because they're so tasty.

Couldn't pass up Gayle's peaches: but just half a dozen, three yellow, three white. It's early in the season, but it looks like a fine crop this year.

Look! Yael still has favas! They go perfectly with the salmon…

Cook grilled the fish in the black iron skillet on top of the stove, and cooked the favas in a little butter. Green salad afterward. Martini before. I love Saturday.
