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!
