Asparagus Days 2


Yes, as predicted earlier, the season has started. So far I have enjoyed copious amount of asparagus in salads (EVERY day), asparagus in my quiche and a saffron and asparagus risotto. Not bad for less than a week's worth of eating :-)

And I still have asparagus soup, asparagus and scrambled eggs, asparagus and pasta, asparagus with sauces, stir fries with asparagus ...

...never been an asparagus fan, and I think thats the first time I have even typed the word, let alone eaten one!! In fact I have an aversion to green things in general...don't like avocados or kiwi fruit, let's not analze why, maybe I dated a really horrible green martian in a past life...giggles! Glad you are enjoying asparagus season tho, and I realise I have now set you a challenge to get me to eat some...lol

ahhh please...I adore asparagus...I'll take any left overs..asparagus risotto sounds beautiful..Im thinking asparagus with an aioli dressing, steamed aspargus just smothered in butter...

what do u think of asparagus with a caper/anchovi paste?? maybe to strong...god Im going to the shop to buy some now..girl Bells doing much better for meals since I met you...x

Ps I'll have kyles share

Hmmm yeah, I think the capers and anchovies would overpower the delicate asparagus. Maybe you could just put a hint of the paste in with some melted butter and pour it over

I'll leave you pair to the asparagus fest...I'll be over here in the corner with my rice crackers and weight watchers tuna when you get over the green stuff...lol
