Wednesday's wanderings...........and easy summer recipes
But I did manage to make Aunt Nubby's pasta salad that she featured last week on her web site. She has the best recipes! It was simple, easy, fast and delicious...just like I like 'em!
I also made oven roasted asparagus and do you know when I got home from Wal-Mart I saw it was from Peru! Crimanetly Wal-Mart! This is the season for asparagus in the U.S. Why are you importing it from Peru! It didn't even occur to me that at this time of year we would be importing asparagus. No wonder there are no jobs....everything happens outside the U.S. Why are Peruvians growing our asparagus? Do we not grow it here anymore? I grew my own on my farm but it takes 3 years to get a good asparagus patch going so I wasn't going to try here as I was moving. They probably grow it there because they don't have the same laws regarding pesticides but could it really be cheaper to import it? I don't think so when you think about fuel used! If we want to preserve energy and jobs here in the U.S we need to be buying closer to home. Oh what a tangled web we weave!
All Recipes It's ingrained in my brain I love it so much. It's healthy and easy and so delicious....YUMMO!
