There are other ways I celebrate and look forward to. Today is that day. The beauty of today is that I didn’t know exactly when this holiday would be celebrated. I knew it generally falls towards the end of April (2015) or possibly the beginning of May (2014). Either way, it brings me great joy… More than Christmas. I’m sure you’ve already checked your calendar to see if this holiday is national or recognized. I’m sure there are some folks that will become celebrators after I let you in on what the big hub-bub is…
It’s Asparagus Season!!!! Yeah!!!! Woo hooo!!
Grilled, steamed, garliced, fresh, wrapped in prosciutto (thanks Mongo’s Dad!) & provolone, creamed soup, pickled, omelettes, sauteed… Did I leave out any other way to enjoy these succulent, juicy, gifts from Mother Earth?!?
