Let's Get Going Again!...with Some Stinky Pee

When my boss mentioned to me the other day that summer hours were in effect, my heart skipped a beat. Summer hours means a lot of Friday afternoons off. Those hours will now be ear marked for culinary adventure! The timing could not be more perfect, I have been chomping to get Smothered in Butter back into full swing AND the Jewel of spring has sprung...


I used my very first Friday to visit Barries Asparagus and Country Market. 2lbs of bright green mild early season asparagus and 1lb of rhubarb landed in my passenger seat. 1 1/2 lbs of asparagus even made it home.

If you were around last year you followed us as we farm hopped, you enjoyed some laughs and some recipes along the way. (read last years Asparagus Adventure). You can expect much more of the same as we kick off Season 2012. I am  hoping too to persuade some very lovely cooks whom I have encountered over the winter absence to offer up a few of their favorite recipes and adventures as well.

So armed with the very best from my stop at the farm today we are ready to get going...

...and yes I know asparagus makes your pee stink. If that isn't a tidbit to entice a child to eat it I don't know what is!

Eat well, Love much, Laugh Often
