After a very busy week (Did I ever mention that I directed the kids' play this spring? Well, I did.), we enjoyed a lovely springtime dinner. Asparagus is back, people!
And in case you didn't know, the best way to eat it is grilled. And that is very easy to do.
Step one: brush with olive oil and sprinkle with salt:
Step two: grill for 2 minutes. Just 1 minute per side will do it:
Use real charcoal. It's way better than a gas grill, if you care about things like flavor.
Step three: Eat it up, preferably with some grilled steak tips and herbed rice:
Such a delicious, springtime treat. Incidentally, Kirk marinated the steak in soy, ginger, and garlic. The rice has butter, thyme, and some scallions for flavor.
It is so, so good to have spring herbs and fresh, green vegetables to eat again. Welcome, May!
