Asperges op z'n Vlaams


Asperges op z'n Vlaams/ Asparagus Flemish way, this is what it means.
The season of Asparagus have started here in Belgium.
Every year during this period especially May I do few times at home this delicious vegetable in different ways.

One of the most famous way it is eaten is like this, which is really delicious. I love it and according to my husband Belgium has the best Asparagus. Who am I to argue with it as I have only had Belgium Asparagus.

Talking about asparagus I have to tell you all a funny story, This happened almost (in three months) 16 years ago.
I just had my daughter, she must have been a week or 2 old. So for lunch I had asparagus soup . And here they say if you are brest feeding you should not eat this vegetable as the milk will have a particular taste.
Ofcourse at that time i didn't know this. After lunch we went to my MIL place and my 5 year old niece was there too.
So after a while I was changing Shyama's pamper and my niece was really curious to see what i was doing. ( She was wearing this beautiful new dress which was stiched by my MIL).

She was oposite to me and watching, suddenly we saw a full spray of you know what (No:2)was on my niece.

She was so shocked that my little niece didn't even cry ,but then the whole family started laughing and laughing.
Now she is 21 years we have told her this few times to her and every time we have fun.


This is my contribution to Barbara of Wineosandfoodies, she is hosting this wonderfull event LiveSTRONG Day A taste of yellow event.She have asked us to join her again as we remember those loved ones who are no longer with us, support those still fighting and celebrate with those who have won the fight.Tommorow is the last day to send the entries.

Before we go to the recipe , i want to say I am going for a One month break as my Sister from India is comming to visit me.
She is will be here from next week for almost a month, so I will see you all by the end of May.

You can all guess what I have asked to bring for me .
Few things for my kitchen :-)Have asked her to bring me Appom Chatti, Murukku press etc.... if i contnue the list it will go on and on :-)


Asparagus,eggs,butter

Asparagus 16 to 20
3 hard boiled eggs finley chopped ( I didn't do it as i was in a hurry)
150 gm butter
ParsleySalt and Pepper
Method

In the mean time heat the butter with salt and pepper.
