It's National Asparagus Day!
We have had a bed of Asparagus for many years and of course that means lots of harvesting for a couple of months - basically about 6 weeks from approximately late January until sometime in April - well I do cheat a little and harvest even now a few spears to have some fresh. But all that wonderful bounty means I craft recipes to give us "Asparagus Variety" although we do have some favorites.
Like Bacon Wrapped Asparagus Bundles on the grill - with basil leaves tucked in if I have some fresh in the garden. The one pictured from some years ago was a quick side - now-a-days I wrapped the whole length of the bundle. Either way they are awesome!
The recipe is here.
For the soup and other ways with Asparagus, including a lovely fresh salad with roasted asparagus and other veggies from the garden click here for my post.
I hope these give you some ideas for how to use this wonderful garden gem.
This weekend while enjoying family and out door time, remember the fallen Memorial Day.
Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. ... Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.
Take care and be kind.
