Asparagus is Finally on sale.  Yeah!  Yes, I’m one of those really weird people who Really like Asparagus — especially for 99 cents/lb.   Yes, I said 99 cents/lb.  Thank you Bi-lo.  The sale ends today, so I’m thinking that we should go out and get another bunch (of course, we’ve already consumed the last batch we purchased on Friday).  Freshly steamed asparagus … yummy!
