A co-worker of mine delightfully figured out how to make his own asparagus and shared with me his recipe. The best part was listening to him describe the peel of the lemon :) The asparagus itself was delicious. I ended up eating most of it on my own right when it came out because I was starving after work. Bwahaha! I found something for Joe later :)
