Asparagus officinalis

If anyone had told me as a kid that someday I’d walk through a farmer’s market and say “Hey!  Asparagus!  Let’s get some!”, I’d call them a bit on the nuts side.  For Christ’s sakes, it’s not only a vegetable but a rather odd looking one and it takes three freakin’ years to grow a crop!  Steph, of course, begged to differ.

Behold – today’s lunch.

Herb crust pizza with tomato sauce (homemade), sweet peppers (home grown), mushrooms, and asparagus purchased at the farmer’s market.  Man, sometimes, being married to a foodie is awesome.
