Although the calendar date reads April 1st, it feels like December 1st! I don't know about you, but I'm not going to let that get in the way of getting excited for Spring cooking. Each time I went to the grocery store (which was often) this past week, the anticipation would build up as I would walk through those electric doors hoping to see a produce section full of beautiful bright spring fruits and vegetables. The result: not the picture perfect image I'd imagined in my head, but what I did find was beautiful asparagus; both baby and fully mature stalks. This sparked interest and I did a little research on this delectable spring delight.
