As you know it was Mother’s Day on Sunday, so Bailie and I volunteered to be kitchen helpers for Mom. We went out to Gramma’s house for brunch. Mom was doing the cooking, and we figured the least we could do would be to help out. The work was exhausting, and after a while, I crashed out!
Gramma loves it when Mom makes eggs benedict and asparagus with Hollandaise sauce, so that was our menu. Green asparagus always needs to be nicely washed in cold water, so I helped out by making sure it was getting appropriately cleaned.
Once it was cleaned, snapped off, and peeled, it goes in the asparagus pot. Living in Germany for ten years Mom learned about cooking several different things, one of them being asparagus. It really is a fine art if you do it right. Whenever she makes it, people love it.
We got it all put together and served it up. Can you believe Mom did not even offer me any? I got to sniff the plate after some had been eaten, and I have to say, I sure wanted to steal it all. Yummy!
