jerk turkey patties!
yep, it's soo dayum good...i can't even count.
if you haven't been under the bridge (jones fall farmers' market) on sundays you are missing a treat. the curry shack is where it's at! man those patties are something special. and she has a rack of internationa spices that will inspire the cook in all of us. new favorite, mango-pineapple
i am still not brave enough to try the green wheat grass juice.

food writer yes, anthony!


story to come...let's just say some times creepy guys can have good recommendations.
here's a way i love to eat asparagus.

Finally found the recipe by listening to some chic on NPR.

Asparagus w/mustard vinegrette
Cut away tough stems
Boil or blanch for 2-4 minutes in salted water
Remove with tongs

Crush a medium clove of garlic to a paste
Add ¼ tsp. kosher sea salt
Stir in 1 TBSP red wine vinegar
Use a fork to blend 1 tsp Dijon mustard
Gently stir in 2-3 TBSP of good olive oil
To create a light emulsion
Fresh ground pepper to taste
Drizzle a table spoon over the asparagus

To liven things up…try some:
Chopped green onion; or
Fresh mint; or

I would recommend all three at the same time. But if you do, let me know how it turns out.
