Lemon Pepper Asparagus

When I was sixteen, my then-boyfriend and I would spend a lot of time during the summer visiting his granny and grampa at their house in Maple Ridge, MI.  Each morning, Granny, he and I would go for a walk and gather asparagus that was growing wild on the side of the road.  Being a city girl, it amazed me that this “exotic” vegetable, which I had only eaten maybe once or twice in my life, was so abundant right there among the grass and the weeds!  I learned that this didn’t have to be a fancy veggie, smothered with Hollandaise sauce. It was delicious prepared simply, too, as it is here in my favorite asparagus creation.
