It’s Asparagus time!

The field next to our house is planted with asparagus (my dad’s cousin owns it) and each year we cannot wait to pick some!

Kaden asked me the other day what we were having for supper and if asparagus would go with it?

We were having chicken. He was very excited when I told him we could go out and pick some. You really do not pick asparagus, you cut it. Kaden was a happy boy when I handed him the knife and let him do the cutting.

We love asparagus here. All except Kaden. Our favorite way to prepare it is roasted with a bit of olive oil and sea salt.

I think this year I am going to make some asparagus soup!

I love fresh vegetables and fruit! I am looking forward to some fresh strawberries over the weekend!
