The Asparagus are in….

The Asparagus are in and they look very appetizing.  For you wandering woods people it’s time for some Asparagus and fresh picked Morels.  Yes, they are coming up. My son-in-law went to his son’s baseball game on Tuesday and on the outskirts of the field were some Morel mushrooms. I’ve never been that lucky but, they’re ready for sautéing.  Make sure you know what you’re picking because the false morels are up also.
