Ode to Asparagus

Well, I don't fully disagree with The Pedant always, but often enough, I must say that I did watch the same Iron Chef episode (we were actually in the same room) and did see Morimoto kick Symon's tushy (although Symon put up a relatively good fight, but not good enough), I didn't care about the lemon-lime soda and rum mixture as much as my co-blogger. I, on the other hand, enjoyed the fact that they used asparagus.

I love asparagus. I think not only does it taste good, but it makes your pee smell afterwords. Any food that can do that is a food I'll eat! (Except beets. While they do turn your pee red, I think they taste weird.) Asparagus can taste very good with some things. I especially like it with pasta and olive oil with other veggies and cheese. Or, I find it tasty when roasted in the oven with onions and mushrooms, lots of garlic and a vinaigrette. Yum.

So in conclusion, asparagus good, iron chef good, cooking with lemon-lime soda, ok, Dr. Pepper and Rum...NO!

NEXT POST: The Iron Chef about chocolate and my love for that food....mmmmm
