I can't believe it's that time of year again - the asparagus has arrived! To compensate for a day of poor eating (on a whim, I made pikelets for afternoon tea - Matt and I ate 14 of them in about 3 minutes), I put together an asparagus, potato, egg and mint salad for dinner.

The asparagus is so fun and novel at this end of the season - it feels like such a treat and is so much fun to harvest. In about two weeks, we will be stockpiling it in the fridge and off-loading some to anyone who'll take it, but for now it's still delicious and new and fresh and a reminder that summer is just around the corner.
