  1. I shouldn’t make my fork wait anymore! Truth is that I usually don’t prepare any asparagus recipes, so this spring I have to borrow yours! Thanks for sharing, Liz :)

  2. What a varied and creative round up. I love asparagus. I should be turning green with how much I’ve eaten.

    I don’t normally talk about ME, but please make note of the slight name change from Wild Goose Tea.
    New web design—whoopee. Will be adding some new features along the way.
