I was strawberry picking at a local farm today and saw they had fresh asparagus and had just been picked. I wanted to enter a contest so I purchased a bundle and came home to study how I would prepare my fresh beauties. I scanned through some recipes and thought I might use one of them and decided I would just try something I had in the cabinet that is so good on this pecan salad I eat in a local resturant. So I baked my beauties in the oven and tried my very on recipe which I and my husband think is very good. It is the season for fresh Asparagus and it is just something about home grown.
