We all know that eating more vegetables would be good for us.  We may even like vegetables and not be upset that are eating them, but we all still need to have some variety in their preparation.  Bon-Appetit’s recipe for Stir-Fried Sesame Asparagus is a simple way to zest up your vegetables and make them more enjoyable to eat, without much extra effort.food-019

These asparagus were so successful that I already convinced a friend to try it when she and her boyfriend made dinner together this week! Rock out!!! That’s what I like to hear. Enjoy food!!

Trying to figure out if asparagus is a traditional Thanksgiving food, or if it’s something my mother just always made. Is it in season now? I’ll have to do some research and find out. And since you can’t tell time lapse while I’m still writing this, I have concluded that Asparagus (while available in the grocery now) comes into season in April and stays in season for not quite 2 months. So if you’re eating it now, it was either grown in a green house, or it wasn’t grown locally. Frack! It was still very tasty, so I’m guessing it was imported from a place where the growing season is more like ours during April.

I love wikipedia, and I hope that if you’ve every perused it you can appreciate that there is a section in the Asparagus entry titled “Asparagus and Urine“. A key indicator that Wikipedia is controlled by the masses. I love it!!! Also check this article by Discovery about “Asparagus Pee”
