First Recipe: Asparagus Stuffed Eggs

"In a pleasant spring morning all sins are forgiven. Such a day is a truce to give. While such a sun holds out to burn, the vilest sinner may return. Through our own recovered innocence we discern the innocence of our neighbors." ~Henry David Thoreau

These are awesome. They're basically deviled eggs but with steamed asparagus whipped into the the yolky goo. They SCREAM spring. I started with them because I was making meatball sliders anyway, and they felt like the perfect picnic style side to go with them. Perk: the process is familiar. Downside: they are time consuming to make. Extra perk: the kids ate them. Hidden vegetable WIN!!!
You need, eggs, asparagus, parsley, mustard, mayo, salt and pepper, and tomatoes and olives for garnish. These would be GORGEOUS alternated with regular old yellow deviled eggs.

Check out my process:

Pretty, simple, totally inexpensive (the asparagus was on sale for $1.59 for a huge bunch. I bought loads), and delicious. Expect to see these gracing the next potluck I attend.

As an up note- hubs is somewhat pleased with this experiment. In season foods cost less. Vegetarian foods cost less. He just decided to take up fishing. Self caught fish are freeeeeee!
Next recipe will be Minestrone Monastico on Wednesday. I finally found a chicken shaped cookie cutter so tomorrow is going to be crockpot chicken pie.
