I LOVE Asparagus!

In honor of Asparagus Season I would like to pay tribute to my most favorite vegetable.

Top 5 Reasons Why I Love Asparagus:

1) The green color, it's just so pretty!

2) The way it tastes fresh from the garden.

3) The way it tastes fresh out of the can. :)

4) Making a sauce out of mayo and lemon juice to put on top...

- Please do try this - it's absolutely delicious!

5) It's such a photogenic veggie, I would hang a picture of it in my kitchen!

This photo from f2images is just so neat. I love the feel of it!

Love these recipe cards featuring our little asparagus friend from myzoetrope

Why not grow your own with these Heirloom Mary Washington seeds from azuredandelion?

  5. I am also a lover of asparagus. I just pop it in the oven with some extra virgin olive oil, garlic, and salt&pepper and it's perfect!
