Asparagus, My Treat for Today
I found the first fresh asparagus at the store yesterday. One of my very favorite treats! I got a pound ($1.79), and I rinsed, snapped off the woody end of the stems, and baked them at 375 F on a baking sheet with some good olive oil and some sea salt. When they were done (starting to caramelize is right for me) I added a pat of good butter and ate a third of the amount.
It's a treat I don't feel guilty about since they are so healthy! I'll get them at least once a week when I can find them.
