    I love asparagus. I throw a pound into Tom-yum soup while it’s boiling and it’s delicious. Anything is better when you add asparagus

    Yey, that’s a great video :-). You are so natural in front of the camera! And a great recipe! I just bought asparagus and was thinking what to make with it tomorrow – perfect timing :-). And I love the City Tavern – such a cute restaurant. I am definitely going there again next time I’m in Philadelphia. Have a great weekend!

    Oh, this is just delish! Honey Bunny LOVES asparagus and he’d adore this recipe! Fascinating history – as always…I had no idea that his garden was so well documented! Thanks and have a GREAT weekend!
