new season's asparagus

first asparagus of the season

We were delighted to spot some UK asparagus in Morrisons yesterday – it seems very early to me, but there it was, and we bought two packs; we only eat British asparagus, so we tend to gorge on it a bit when it’s here!

Last night’s dinner was already planned – some pork stuffed with basil and mozzarella; I’d actually bought these from the wonderful Fields of Anlaby when we had no kitchen, and we never got round to cooking them, so I’d taken them out of the freezer for Sunday’s supper. We accompanied the pork with, yes, steamed asparagus and some roast potatoes.

Tonight, I’m going to chargrill the other bunch, and have it with pasta, lemon juice, walnut oil and parmesan. Om nom.
