Pat on the Back Worthy

Hola Bloggies:

Feel like earning a pat on the back today?  It’s simply really!

Start with a generous handful of farm fresh spring asparagus, two free range eggs, a small handful of baby carrots (the kind you buy specifically for your puppy because she’s spoiled like that), a lovely lemon, and a teensy weensy bit of sea salt.

Consider cooking the asparagus but decide to leave them raw. Because they really are that lovely. No cooking could enhance their natural flavour.

Decide to boil your eggs until medium done. Realize that such perfection is hard to achieve and purchase the Egg Timer iPhone App to assist.

Peel your eggs and cut each in half with a spoon, place in a small bowl. Plate your carrots and asparagus. Slice open lemon and drizzle on veggies. Sprinkle sea salt to taste.

Conclude that there is nothing you could have done to make this meal more delicious. Pat yourself on the back.

Repeat often until the last of the spring asparagus is gone. Dream of next year.

Marianne,

Do you mean to say you don't eat any eggs at all!?!? Has that always been the case!?!? :oO
