Fiddlehead Ferns

Yum.  I had never had them before, so when we found some this weekend in Massachusetts, I got excited and grabbed a bagful.  And yep, they were delicious:  cooked in boiling water for about 5 minutes, placed into an ice bath, then sauteed with salt, pepper and olive oil until tender. Then served up with a splash of balsamic vinegar. It was a good first foray into fiddlehead territory.  But, alas, their short season is just about over, so I'll have to wait a year to have another taste.

We had a fun Memorial day weekend playing with sparklers and long exposures.  And writing our names in lights.  I know it's a bit late, but I thought these pictures were fun, and with the heat wave coming up this week I need all the happy summer thoughts I can get!
