I had to improvise. This week´s French Fridays with Dorie challenge was asparagus with bits of bacon. Guess what? Those green stalks are nowhere to be found. Season´s over and that´s the end of it. Not even a sorry excuse for a stalk can be bought in the market, not even if the vegetable guy is your friend.
They say bacon makes everything better and I usually agree. I found the lemon juice though, to be such an excluding ingredient, I need to emphasize it. Five ingredients that were so much more than the sum of its parts. I believe with asparagus the equation is even better.
