Do I love springtime because I love asparagus?

Asparagus Crepe

I think it’s true. I don’t think I loved spring nearly as much before I planted my asparagus patch. We’ve had piles of asparagus this year and have had fun eating it in as many ways as possible. My favorite was the shittake and asparagus crepes.

We harvested our very first mushrooms from our logs and a big ‘ol pile of aspargus.
I sauted both up in a skillet with some of our home cured and smoked bacon,rolled this filling  with some Three Graces goat chevre up in some super delicate crepes (the secret to delicate crepes is beer in the batter), and topped it with fennel frond bechemel sauce.

My French Friend stopped by just as we were taking the first bites and he gave them two thumbs up.

Other asparagus dinners have included Asparagus Frittata, Asparagus and Bacon with Beet Soufflet,
and Asparagus Pilaf with Shittaki, Lemon Zest and Fennel.
Stay tuned as Strawberry Season goes crazy!!
