Today a friend called in need of a favor. I helped him out and in return, he bought me some asparagus. I have plans to make Simply Recipe's Asparagus with Lime and Mint, but I didn't want that tonight for some reason.
Tonight I wanted eggs.
So here's what I did. I started by cutting three pieces of asparagus to manageable lengths. And, by the way, I lurve chopping vegetables. (I know. Veg = good. Fruit = bad. I don't get it either.)
Anyway, I threw those into a bit of hot EVOO in a small skillet. This being my first experience cooking asparagus, I poked and prodded at the green monsters until I decided they were appropriately tender.
Once I was satisfied with the browning tenderness of the asparagus, I turned the heat down to medium and added two eggs, prepared in my usual scramble way (salt, pepper, splash of milk, lightly beaten). While the eggs set a little, I tore up a slice-o-cheese product and dropped it in. I cannot tell you in words how magical this makes scrambled eggs.
After a very quick but slow scramble, I dumped the whole bazzoo into a bowl, took one final poorly lit picture, and chowed down.
It was... fantastic.
I highly recommend it. Like, right now. Go!
Oh, wait! Before you go, I want to know how you prepare asparagus. I'm going to try the lime + mint thing, but I don't think I'll make up a whole bunch that way. What else should I do with these spears of vegetable goodness?
