my precious little spring bundle of love
Last week, the asparagus arrived and I went overboard and bought (and ate!) 4 bunches in one week. Mwahahaha! No regrets! To keep it simple, I just lightly cooked them in a cast iron pan over medium-heat with a tiny spray of oil... until they were soft and lightly browned. Sooooo good.
As you may know, our kitty Yummers really loves asparagus. Even though it's been a whole year since asparagus season, little Mr. Yummers had not forgotten his favorite veggie - and materialized out of nowhere ... meowing like a persistent beast until he got his share. It's so cute! (here's an old video of him eating an entire asparagus in one fell swoop - after that show of gluttony, now I only give him the little tips!)
