Speargrass #Vegetarian

It’s quarter to Spring, and that means asparagus. Or, as Mom says she used to call it when she was little, speargrass. I think speargrass is a brilliant name for it. I think that ought to be its official name.

So I bought some at the grocery (because ours has died out, alas) and made this.

Angel hair pasta, pan-toasted speargrass, hard-boiled egg, shredded Italian cheese blend, the tag end of bottled Alfredo sauce, and a sprinkle of toasted bread crumbs.

Um yum.

I posting at Fatal Foodies today about a kitchen gadget that kindasorta worked.

A WRITING PROMPT BASED ON MY POST: Write about a funny but appropriate name for something.



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.

    When I saw the title in my inbox, I was hoping you were talking about asparagus. This looks really good. I think I could even eat it veggie-style, although I really like asparagus with steak.
