Today's Dupont Circle Farmers Market was bustling despite cloudy skies and threats of rains. I set out with designs on picking up a bunch of asparagus (now that I've discovered I actually like it) and duck eggs (for my next Farmers Market Challenge where I make something I've never attempted.)
But the Farmers Market has a mind of it's own. Eating from local farms means you get what local farms have, not whatever your whim is. And Tom was out of duck eggs by the time I got my tail out of bed. But the Farmers Market actually provides inspiration where you never even knew it might exist. And today, that came in the form of these gorgeous morels:

PS. My blogger pal, Adventures in Shaw has already sent me a killer Asparagus-Leek Lasagna recipe that I can tweak using ramps instead... The Bitten Word has an intriguing Shaved Asparagus Salad with Parmesan and @samerfarha's suggested an omelette. Sigh, if I only had my duck eggs. (Silently vowing next week to get to the market earlier. Tom says the duck eggs are just coming in and he expects to have more next week.)
