Farmers' Market Sweep (Part 1)

Waking up is hard to do. Waking up really early is harder to do. Waking up to go to the farmers' market when you're cooking just for yourself is hardest to do.

Well, the CC hied himself to the market, but today the food gods were scowling.

Oh well! Sometimes you're the windshield, and sometimes you're the bug. Sometimes you're even the guy who gets to clean off the splat of the bug off the windshield.

Inventory of Haul

spring garlic (bought 3, and the guy said, "Take one more! It's $5 for 4.")
basil (very good!!!)
fava beans
yellow zucchini

Everything else kinda sucked.

"You call this a swiss chard? I've seen terminally-ill great-grandmothers with more life in them!", etc. etc.

Anyway, it was back to the apartment, and dinner decisions had to be made sans desperation.

Basil and spring garlic suggested pesto, and the fava beans suggested themselves. The rest of the items suggested nothing.

Well, it was hey-ho-off-we-go, and what do we have here?

Linguini con pesto e fave

Recipe to follow.
