"Never Give a Sucker an Even Break"
W. C. Fields
I am a sucker for gadgets. There is a drawer in the kitchen to prove it. This weekend we were at the Asparagus Festival and a peddler was hawking this vegetable steamer. His fancy patter proclaimed asparagus could be cooked in 30 second with this newfangled contraption. Well I bought hook line and sinker.
The operation is simple enough. Place your vegetable is said pouch and push microwave button.' By George' it works perfectly. The asparagus was steamed without any water, oil or fat. What a healthy and simple way to cook asparagus. I immediately spread butter over my steamed asparagus and then dipped them into mayonnaise. What a treat!!!!!!!!
