Want free asparagus?

Posted by Cecile at Sunday, October 19, 2008
When I served a mission for our church for 1 and a 1/2 year in 1996-1998, asparagus is not a problem with us. It wasn't only cheap, but we don't need to buy it. Why? Because in the place where I served in General Santos City, Dole has a very big asparagus, bananas and pineapples plantations. Members of the church work there and they just give it to us free! Back then, I wasn't a fan of asparagus and that's when I learned to eat it especially if you got nothing to eat. Now, asparagus is very expensive especially here in the U.S. I just wished I could go back there and get some to take here with me, that way I don't have to worry buying expensive asparagus at all.

hahaha... i noticed that too ... in the Philippines we can eat plenty of delicious fruits and vegetables affordable, yet i prefer meat ... even malunggay is just at the backyard, my neighbors can ask it for free. I missed our vegies and sweet fruits really.

yup, i miss malunggay, too! there you can ask your neighbor for veggies and even fruits like banana, but here you have to buy everything :-) so sad :-(

richard, i think i woud try to cook it like you do, adobo, sounds yummy! i am getting tired of stirred fry asparagus. Have you tried roasting it with a little bit of olive oil and salt and pepper? that is good, too!
