I've often heard children say, "There's nothing to do today". I beg to differ. I'd like to inspire you to do something. Anything. Read. Bake. Hike. Fish. Plant. Sail. Climb. Play. Reach. Move. Laugh. Dream; and take time to sit with me on The Old Granite Step.

Fresh Asparagus

We took a drive over the weekend to simply enjoy the wonderful spring scenery.  It seems as though the summer heat will be bearing down on us any day now.  There was a light breeze with nary a cloud in the sky.  We stumbled upon a small and a bit run down farm selling asparagus.  How could we resist?

It was quite a large tent for such a small amount of asparagus!  Perhaps the farmer will treat us to more veggies as the summer progresses.
 Fresh picked.

 A quick rinse and a small bit trimmed off the end was all that was needed.

 A dash of olive oil, sea salt and cracked pepper and it was ready for the grill!
A fabulous side dish for the barbeque event!
