The gremlins decided to take a little trip to Italy to "help" you guys with your renovations . I've convinced "Stripe" that he would love to drive your tractor haha.
(Thanks for your support while I was getting the blog back on it's feet. Much appreciated)


Marito does have a point.... 2.5 Euro increase!! scandalous:) I love asparagus. My grandfather switches from hunting wild mushrooms to hunting wild asparagus this time of year. Sounds good to me!


I love asparagus in a fritatta, but the first taste has to be in a pure form..slightly boiled.
Can't wait. Asparagus and peas are our first crop.

Asparagus any of 150 ways to enjoy it! We used to have special suppers when I was a kid where we could ask for anything we wanted collectively and it didn't have to be a balanced menu. All asparagus followed by strawberry shortcake was an early summer memory. What joy!

Oh, we eat our asparagus broiled too with mayo (try mixing a bit of paprika in the mayo). I can barely serve it before Alfredo starts eating it directly from the baking pan.

SMN.... an exquisite church. I love these refreshers you have from my Art & Arch class decades ago. Thank you!

tanti baci, Amy


Ah Asparagus tender stalks steamed in oriental baskets over pots boiling water then plucked into cold water chopped and added to small cherry tomatoes black olives and lemon juice olive oil and salt and coarse black peeper with just a sprig of thyme. nummy!

I've got my eye on those asparagus (Santa Maria Novella ain't half bad either though). Would you believe we don't own one of those grill pan thingees that all Italians (except mine, apparently) seem to have? This is the year, this is the season--the asparagus is waiting for me.

can you believe we haven't been in SMN yet?! You've inspired me though and we'll go soon :)

We bought some asparagus yesterday at the market and am so excited to eat it. When we were in Rome on Friday, I ate an asparagus linguine which was great!
