Hey, friends! Happy Friday to you! Is it spring yet where you live? Is your asparagus in season? According to my unscientific observations from the grocery store produce department (and the rainy week that we’ve had), I can tell you that it’s definitely that time of year in Virginia! When I noticed the asparagus on sale at my local grocery store last weekend, I scooped up multiple pounds of the green goodness to use in dinners for the week. Plus, it was the vegetable “special” when Keith and I went out to eat at a local farm-to-table restaurant last Saturday. If it’s cheap, fresh, and delicious, you better believe that I’m going to take advantage while it lasts!
