Asparagus

There’s been a bit of asparagus grilling going on here as of late. This past two weeks or so, we’ve been attending the Dane County Farmer’s Market, and we picked up some fresh asparagus. You know, when I was growing up, you couldn’t pay me to eat it. But about three years ago, I tried grilling it, after just slightly blanching it, and it turned out delicious. Ever since then, my husband and I both look forward to early spring when it becomes available. Here’s a great recipe for grilling asparagus that I guarantee will convert you to eating it too! Because I blanch my asparagus for approx. 3 minutes, I only roast for 3-4 minutes and only on one side. You’ll need asparagus, olive oil, salt, fresh pepper, lemon wedges, and 15 minutes. Enjoy!

Seven Years Ago Today!

This last week has been really hectic. I’ve had end of school term finals, a pre-commencement party, work, gardening, and then commencement this past Saturday. I was a bit overwhelmed by it all because I hadn’t thought about the fact that I would be wearing an honor medallion and that the ceremony would last so long. That said, it sure was nice to share in the excitement of the day with everyone that attended. My husband looked so proud of me that it made me a little teary-eyed. I was certainly humbled by the day. Sunday was spent relaxing all day and binging on Grace & Frankie, starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin. I sure hope there is a season two! Until next time, I pray warmer weather is on the way. I have tomato, radish, and lettuce starters all waiting to get hardened off in the sun before transplanting..

I’m all done with college. Yay! I graduated.
