Mini Crustless Asparagus Quiche, politics or sunsets

Did I mention that it’s asparagus season?

Last weekend we decided to ‘double our pleasure’ and have asparagus for both a first course and a vegetable.

Mon mari is a firm believer in never being able to have too much asparagus.

As a good wife I feel obligated to accommodate him.

The things I do to keep him happy.

Sigh…..

These were fun – and skipping a crust of any sort made them light enough for a first course and very quick and easy.

Are you enjoying the election year so far?

Exciting times, yes?

I especially appreciate how everyone has maintained such dignity in the primaries and the debates. Watching polite interchanges between well-behaved candidates is a pleasure.

And the way they all stick so assiduously to the facts and the truth…..

Well, I just think it shows a true respect for the democratic process we all hold so dear.

Of course, living on this side of the pond I don’t get all of the ads and updates that most Americans do.

Sometimes, I just have to accept my lot and contemplate the sunsets.

Sunsets are even prettier with the lake….

Note to self: Tell mon mari to get out there and sling some mud, er, I mean, move his dirt pile.

  1. Gill, it really has added a lot to our view. I’m glad they did it (as long as they don’t decide to do poly-tunnels to go with it,.,,)

    Bob, the reflection makes the whole field lighter…. We’re thinking of adding a park bench to the other side 😉

    Phoenicia, we think we’re going to have baby ducks soon to add to the fun.
