Lettuce and Asparagus – an Abundance of Riches

Hmmmm… What to make with the asparagus….  There’s the lovely asparagus/salmon/pesto/tortellini dish… or a frittata with caramelized onions, asparagus and cheese…. or maybe I’ll pan roast it for a side dish…   You know what??  I have enough to do all three!  Yay!

Pan roasted...simple and delicious.

I have also put out a call to neighbors to come get some lettuce.  It will lose its sweetness if it gets hot and it’s perfect now.

This is the lettuce I wintered over in the cold frame. My transplants from the cellar are now ready to start picking and my first planting is up! Help!!
