Did I ever mention how farmer’s market produce just tastes so much better? Maybe it’s because the food is actually fresh.  I think most of us are way to deprived of real quality fresh food.  Fresh food makes such a big difference in flavor and taste, seriously by orders of magnitude (yes, there is the scientist in me creeping out with math terminology to describe food, haha)

Asparagus is great.  I love it when it is bright green and still crunchy, which is why often I will just quickly steam/saute it for a few minutes in a skillet.  Really asparagus doesn’t need any more than that.  However, pouring a yummy cream sauce over it is always nice :)  For the cream sauce I used up the rest of my kale (Remember how I said that kale is one of those veggies that I think needs cream and butter? It turns out cream and butter makes kale taste awesome!), some mushrooms, and chives and garlic – yum!
