Aaiiiyeee! Lookie what I found growing in the yard!

ASPARAGUS!

I was given some transplant asparagus last fall…dug it a whole on the side of the yard next to my neighbor’s garage and promptly forgot about it.

Last night while watering the beets, peas, onions, garlic, radishes, and carrots I looked over at the overgrown weed/grass and a dried out asparagus fern. Went over to weed and found wee asparagus spears!

Paula Deen’s Christmas Ham for Easter

NOTE: Since I see a lot of people looking up this recipe I thought I’d let you know how it turned out. The ham with the marmalade/mustard rub was EXCELLENT ~ very tasty. BUT ~ personally, I’d leave off the crust. Or at least use a pie crust instead, as the crescent rolls kept sliding off the ham!

I was watching Paula Deen on the Food Network last Christmas and drooling over her CHRISTMAS HAM recipe…only we were invited over to the in-laws for Christmas and I didn’t get to make it! So, guess what I’m making for Easter!?! 🙂

Also will be making scalloped potatoes and from Raley’s Something Extra Spring 2008 magazine, MUSHROOM & ASPARAGUS SALAD.
