I love asparagus. At one time (in my younger days), I was not so much of a fan. I’d turn my picky little nose up and refuse to eat anything green on my plate. I can remember the first time I tried okra (which was a force feeding, mind you)… but that’s a story for another day. Back to the veggie at hand.
Around here, we’ll have asparagus as often as we can… although, we never seem to prepare it in such a special way. Served alongside a smoked turkey breast, potatoes au gratin and a nice mixed salad, it felt like we were eating Easter dinner a few days early. It’s a simple and flavorful side dish that takes mere minutes to prepare. Beautiful AND delicious! 🙂
