One Big Asparagus

Oh ho ho ho oh what a big one
I've never seen one as big as that before
Oh ho ho ho oh what a big one
It must be fourteen inches long or more!

Vegetable fertilization is a growing pass time round here. From garden to table in a matter of minutes is rather exhilarating. I can't afford to eat in most buzzed about Bay Area restaurants that serve up fresh/local/humane etc, but I can occasionally splurge on some nice produce. Or maybe if I'm lucky, I can find the above right in my own backyard. The other week, one and only one huge asparagus graced the garden. This called for some rather non-drastic action.

Pristine ingredients need very little help. A quick chop,


into the pan with a little oil, garlic, and salt and it was ready to top a salad for two.

There's nothing else to say really. This isn't rocket science, but it is delicious.
