Eat Local Asparagus Challenge – Day 7 and a Save for Day 8
You know what could have halted the Eat Local Asparagus Challenge? Not asparagus fatigue. Not lack of asparagus recipes. After baked, roasted, with eggs, stuffed in dumplings, raw and cooked, we are ready to proceed. Keeping us from fulfilling the Challenge, asparagus. After Day 7′s simple preparation of cold, with vinaigrette, we were out of asparagus.
Rain kept me from the market launch Thursday at Daley Plaza. We considered a run to Cassie’s Green Grocer, but our schedules were full enough, making that a bit of a stretch. My wife thought, what the hey, I’ll give our local Whole Foods a call. And what do you know. They have, right now, Michigan asparagus. I remained skeptical until I saw them in the store. We have enough asparagus to last a few more days of Challenge.
Tonight, after a few false starts, risotto.
