I have proof that Spring has arrived!
asparagus, lovely bright fresh tasty asparagus.
So, first you get out your skillet and place it on the stove. Add a splash of olive oil, a squeeze of fresh lemon, some minced garlic, a few drops of water and your own special seasonings. THEN, and this is the most important part, go out to your garden and cut a bunch of said asparagus. Bring them in the house and rinse them well. Now turn the burner to medium and when the mixture is warm toss in the spears making sure to get them all well coated in your special sauce. Let them cook about 10 minutes tossing them occasionally. Remove from heat, find a pretty plate, slap away greedy hands and serve yourself some awesomeness.
*of course cooking times will vary. We like ours crisp with a little "snap" to them. I used basil, cilantro and dill but if you mix it up with other herbs you will get an entirely different entree. The first crop is always the best, and fresh is the only way to go with asparagus...stay away from the store! Enjoy.
