I made a quick 7 hour trip over to Asheville, NC and back on Saturday to hook up with Alex’s other grandmother so they could spend part of her spring break together. When I got home, Bev had a couple of steaks laid out and I suggested we needed to eat the remainder of the store bought asparagus from the frig, because the good stuff is here. There are several sticking through the ground, but this is the tallest. I obviously need to do a little hoeing.
They start out slow and early on, we have to save several days worth to make a meal, but soon I’ll have to give it away. I think I’ve said this before, but if you like asparagus and you ever get the opportunity to get some that’s fresh picked – buy it. The only downside is that it will spoil you when you eat the flavorful, tender, creamy, fresh shoots. I think I can feel an omelet, or something, with the new stuff coming on.
We just grilled the old stuff along with the steaks and here’s a couple of shots.
The steaks turned out really good and I've confirmed that I prefer steamed to grilled asparagus.
