A Spud-ful.

I’m back and let’s just say it’s been a very long week – a very animated one, at that. I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned this previously, but I attended a private international school in Korea for middle and most of high school. Now besides entitling its students to a sense of worldly knowledge and ignorant arrogance (no offense), the school truly formed an elite sort of family that has members all over the world. That being said, I can comfortably find at least one or two Seoul Foreign School students that I know in just about any state or even continent I go.¬† Lucky for me, living in Hawaii and all, I get a lot of friendly and familiar visitors from my old school.

Spring and summer are wonderfully abundant seasons in terms of fruits and vegetables and I have only just realized my immense affinity for asparagus.

I never realized how versatile asparagus could be. Furthermore, I suspect that as a child I deemed asparagus as one of those wretched green vegetables important to avoid along with those other green monsters I once believed to be poisonous to my well-being as a young one. However, I could not be less correct. I have only come to realize in my more recent years that asparagus along with those other so-called “green monsters” actually contribute to my well-being and surprisingly taste fabulous. Heck, green’s even one of my favorite colors!
