This holiday weekend was perfectly wonderful! We got a lot accomplished in our yard, and had time to take a few road trips during the days Mr. Wonderful had off from his job. On Saturday we stopped at a little Country Farm Store, and bought some ASPARAGUS! a Whopping FORTY POUNDS of it! Hence, the old crate labels for craft projects and the like.
We worked on cleaning, blanching and packaging the fresh asparagus for our freezer - and saved some for the weekend dinners, and the rest for wintertime meals! Fresh is Best, of course, but frozen is pretty darned close to being fresh, as far as I'm concerned!
