It really raises the question: why eat imitation potato chips when you can eat really freaking good real potato chips?
Why eat anything else BUT the dinner I made for myself last week? It's made from real stuff.
Orzo with Lemon, Mint and Peas
a large handful of shell peas from the farmers' market
6 leaves of mint
fresh parmiagianno reggiano cheese
Vermont Butter & Cheese Co.'s Sea Salt butter, one knob
Shell the peas
Cook orzo according to instructions on box
for the last three minutes of the cooking, throw in raw peas and the mint
Strain, saving a tsp or so of cooking water
Put orzo, peas, mint mixture into a bowl, with the 1 tsp cooking water
Grate lemon zest into it, and the juice of half of the lemon
toss in the butter
sprinkle cheese on top
I swear, you will never eat snax again.
