ASPARAGUS: I LOVE YOU
Yes, you are totally out of season and criminally expensive at the grocery store. Yet I still buy you, of the curvaceous lengthy stems, bursting forth with verdant health and the promise of spring time. Asparagus, you are the most delectable when blanched for 20 seconds, bathed in ice, then tossed in the sexiest olive oil around, sprinkled with truffle salt. No more, no less. You are indulgence one can feel virtuous about. Clearly, I am in love. So is D. It's getting serious.
