First Asparagus Of Spring

This is the first asparagus I have picked of the new year. Supposedly, eating the first asparagus of spring brings good luck. So I ate that sucker raw on the spot. I'll be getting more soon. I love them any way they are fixed; braised, pickled, roasted, with lemon or aoli or a velvety cheese sauce. I freeze them with one of those machines that sucks the air out of the package and they keep like the day I froze them.


  1. Dang, Girl,
    You get fresh asparagus AND goldfish?
    What a life!
    If I can get asparagus for $3.49/lb, I am having a good day.
    Thank you for visiting Auntie's blog.
    Will fly back to see what's new at your gorgeous blog!

  2. The pic is soo cute!!! I wish I liked asparagus, all my friends think I am odd one out for not liking them !! Have a great week, Janna

  3. Oh, oh, oh...that is my favorite veggie besides broccoli.

  4. Wow, to have homemade asparagus, what a treat. I so always appreciate you stopping by. Unfortunately, I won't have internet access while I'm in Warrenton, but I've already started to compile the pictures since I was there this weekend. I'll do a quick post tonight and then that will be it for the next 12 days. Keep watching the week of April 5th, I'm sure there will be lots to show. Have a great week, wish you could come out, Theresa
