the first snipping of asparagus is exhilarating ...


making it into creamed asparagus on toast ...

and biting in is heavenly!

the only thing left ...


is to lick the plate!

just another glorious rite of spring ...

oh, this takes me back to spring days on my grandparents farm -- a simple lunch of asparagus served just this way, or even with out the cream sauce and just on buttered toast. so scrumptious!

My Dearest PG ~

I've missed you so much! Time seems to just fly by ever so quickly and there is never enough moments in the day to stop by and say hello to those I adore so very much! This doesn't mean you are not in my thoughts, or I don't peek into 2bb every day.

Spring is the pinnacle of seasons for me...oh, how I love it so! And I can't get enough of asparagus. LOVE it!

Wishing you a wonderful week!

Bisous,
Melissa
