Asparagus is wonderful, and sometimes it is on sale for a wonderful price. This batch came in at 98 cents a pound! My favorite way to cook asparagus is on the stove top. I cut of just a little bit of the bottom (no more than 3/4 inch)- just until the woody part is gone. Then I put it in a skillet, lightly drizzle it with olive oil and then I put it on medium heat and stir until the color changes to bright green. Then I use the edge of a spatula to press on one of the spears. If it gives a little, then it is done! Sprinkle a little salt on it and serve! I usually use a steak knife to cut it just because it makes it so much more pleasant. Enjoy!
