Asparagus is my favorite vegetable. I could eat it steamed or roasted. I’ve even had asparagus fries with garlic aioli (I know garlic is a traditional ingredient in aioli, but this one had EXTRA garlic. It was so GOOD. Since asparagus grows in my state, I’ll have to look into what it takes to grow my own. My basil plant is still going strong (of course it is being grown indoors, which helps a lot) and I have a few other herbs I’ll be starting when I get a little more time.
