Jumbo Asparagus & Asparagus Ravioli
 So long my good friend Asparagus. There was a sign posted last Sunday at the Asparagus booth that read; 'Last Weekend for Asparagus". We bought these jumbo spears and several packages of asparagus raviolis, to say our goodbyes. Farewell, till next year and we meet again.
  Hello my good friend Corn.

You're loyal, and that's good.

Asparagus is grand on the grill.

Zoomie, Loyal like a puppy dog. We are very lucky to have access to fresh asparagus. I will not buy it again until next year. I would not refuse it though if it showed up on my plate .

Greg, On the grill, boiled, steamed, deep fried, and even raw suits me fine.

Nice picture! (I have that Le Creuset dish.)
We have some purple asparagus; going into a frittata right now, with mushrooms.
And, one more way to cook asparagus: sauté it slowly in butter until you get brown blisters and the insides are like pudding.

We looked for Cranky this Sunday. Don't the purple turn green after cooking? Butter is good.

There is always canned asparagus.

Sorry, I just wanted to try that with a straight face.
