Asparagus, Mon Amour

I got a big ol’ bag of asparagus at JayC the other day, and cooked it up. aspmushHere is the before picture: stems cooking first to tenderize them. Then I did a stir-fry in olive oil with chopped onions, chopped garlic, sliced mushrooms, the tender stems and the raw tips.

The after picture: aspmushsqThat there orange thing is half of the bottom of a hugenormous butternut squash. I hollered it out, baked it, and stuffed it with cornbread dressing. Oh, those little seedy things in the stir-fry are the squash seeds. They’re better baked, but they weren’t bad fried. Just better baked.

To go along with it, we had this excellent brew gifted to us by the magnificent Jane Peyton, author of When Push Comes to Shove, book 1 of Callie London’s Vampire Adventures.werewolfaleYes, that’s Werewolf Ale, “escaped from Britain.” Here’s a spot for it on You Tube.

You’re welcome.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: What kind of beer does a werewolf drink?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Thanks. And, You’re welcome. The Werewolf Ale does have a bit of a wolfy taste, doesn’t it?

    I think a werewolf would drink Guiness–if he couldn’t get his OWN brand, of course.
