Edible shoots

The morning spent tying myself up in red tape around the city in the rain left me virtually lifeless and with no desire to eat, let alone cook. So thank God for asparagus!

I boiled the asparagus uncovered in lightly salted water for 8 minutes.
I fried 2 eggs over easy in cold pressed olive oil.
I warmed half the ciabatta I bought this morning.
I poured a glass of Aglianico.
I shared the tips with E and performed acrobatic scarpetta (sopping runny foods or sauces with bread).
I brewed the espresso.
I'm smiling.

    That's my lunch tomorrow, I bought asparagus today, and was wondering what to do with it.
    Another triumph for AO &P.
