... group potluck today. And I did my favorite spring treat. I just took two pounds of fresh, thin asparagus, washed and snapped them this morning, and poured a little canola on 'em in a sealable plastic container and took it to work. Fifteen minutes before the potluck, I fired up a grill outside and just cooked 'em for about ten minutes, until they were nicely caramelized and just starting to go limp.

The grilling seems to concentrate the flavors. Everyone just nabbed 'em, and the two pounds of asparagus was gone in a flash. Yay!! No leftovers to carry home!
