This has been the year of the asparagus. Each week it seems we've been eating at least one big bunch. I was bringing home a bunch each Wednesday from the little Farmer's Market by my work. "Little" might be an understatement, but they usually have just what I'm looking for even if they don't have several different options to choose from. I love taking a little break from work to walk over there. The sun is usually shinning and the wind is usually blowing. The standard combination for this side of the city.
The people selling the asparagus just have asparagus. Every time they ask if I've had theirs before and if I've liked them. They love to remind me how sweet the asparagus are. And, the green spears really are so tasty.
I love that we can still get asparagus, even at the beginning of summer. The summer fruits have arrived in all their glory too. We've been devouring nectarines and apricots and strawberries. I think the strawberries will need their own post like asparagus. We've been downing them by pint-fulls every week.
Happy summer eats!
