Asparagoosh

April 13, 2011 @ 5:20 pm | Filed under: Food

I think the lesson here is that I should be kept far, far, far away from the kitchen during the week taxes are due. Tonight it was the asparagus: I put some in a pot to steam in a little water, and then somewhere between buttering the bread and slicing the red bell pepper, I forgot about it. For a good twenty minutes.

Puree, anyone?

  1. At least the water didn’t all boil away and the asparagus burn to the bottom of the pan.

  2. …yeah. What laurajean said. There’s not a lot worse than the smell of scorched asparagus…

  3. This is why kitchen timers are my friends. We own about half a dozen. Can’t tell you how many times I’ve scorched pans and ruined food.
