(I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get these pictures rotated properly. They look correct before I upload them, but then somehow the uploading rotates them, and once they're uploaded I can't seem to rotate them back. Anyway...)
I think I'm basically caught up with all of the recipes we have made, so I decided to take it easy this month. We're just starting to see asparagus here--it isn't local, that's still a while away, but at least it's from the US--and so I decided to use it atop the Asparagus Pizza. We were so busy eating that I forgot to take pictures, so here's a picture of the leftovers I brought for lunch at my desk. This is becoming a family favorite--Charlotte enjoyed it too. I imagine I'll make it again before asparagus season runs out.
I just finished mixing the Pea and Mint Ice Cream. It's chilling in the fridge to prepare for churning. I'll try to post an addendum with a better review once I actually taste it. I did want to say that I've made both ice creams now, and I really find the custard recipe in this book difficult. Both times it's curdled long before even starting to get thick. This means I end up settling for a runny custard, which turns into very ice-y ice cream. I'm not very good at making custard, and certainly take full responsibility for my struggles, but I have had better luck with other custard recipes. I'll probably go back to those in the future.
I'm looking forward to getting back in the swing of things next month. We're finally starting to see some spring produce!
