Izzy Protests Asparagus: Two Bad Lunches In A Week.
Today it was Spinach Fettuccine With Ramps and Asparagus. Not my best work, I'll admit. The asparagus did not shine the way they do with a simple mustard vinaigrette, which is the way we usually eat them.
Izzy came home with the remaining asparagus tips, sitting sadly at the bottom of his container. What a shame. Especially since he has been known to fight for the last stalk with his papa.
When I queried as to why he hadn't eaten them the answer didn't surprise. "I just didn't like them. They were not as good as the asparagus that you usually make." I couldn't disagree but tried to explain that even though they were not as good, they were not inedible.
