um, apparently we’re 5 days into july?!? not sure how that happened. i could have sworn june *just* started. i guess this is what happens when you go camping for a week, then have a big birthday party plus two weddings all in the same month (and all out of town)….
every spring for the past few years, i’ve been really excited when the fresh peas show up at the market. i always stuff a ton into a bag, knowing the yield will be small once i shell them, then bring them home and try to think of something spectacular enough to be worthy of them (and the *seeming* hours of shelling…). when i finally come up with something “special enough” for the peas and take the first bite, i invariably wonder “are these actually better than frozen peas? or just 24x more work?”…
here are 3 things you should know about my husband:

- he ate this entire strawberry galette with thyme, save for one slice, in less than 24 hours.

tchad and i went camping in acadia national park up in bar harbor, me last week. before we left, i thought it would be fun to do a little “tasty seasons goes camping” feature and dazzle you with all of the fun things you can cook over/in an open fire. if you google “camping food”, all sorts of nifty lists and ideas pop up with all sorts of clever things you can do to feed yourself under the stars….
