THE JOY OF SIMPLE PLEASURES

My picture tells the story beautifully.
Gently steamed fat spears of fresh asparagus, doused with butter, and eaten with brown bread.
Nothing nicer. You can keep your gourmet highlights like caviar.
I’m very satisfied with my simple supper of fresh asparagus.
Not only satisfied, but content and delighted!

  1. It does look delightful. Asparagus, if cooked right is great treat.

    My grandmother, who stayed next door to me, had 2 asparagus with a slice of toast for supper every night for as long as I knew her.
    She lived until she was 96.

  3. The older I become the more I realise how much more the simple pleasures, including steamed asparagus and brown bread, avec beurre, give to me. Caviar? Forgotten what that tastes like……….and have no inclination to remember. Oysters, though…….an expensive pleasure that I would love to taste again…used to be called ‘the poor man’s food’…..how times have changed!
