This is the time of year for asparagus. The first hearty spears are just poking their heads up through the soil in my dad’s garden. I planted half of those asparagus crowns before I left home. My dad planted the rest a year or two later, and he’s been tending them ever since. I try to get over to help him weed and prepare them for harvest each year. I haven’t made it yet this spring, but I will this week. I love asparagus, and I would happily eat it every day of the week. Cream of asparagus soup, steamed asparagus, asparagus omelets. I’ve never met an asparagus dish that I didn’t like, but my most favorite way to prepare it is simply roasting it.
Don’t forget to stop back on Thursday for Grace’s Kitchen!
