Tale of the Wandering Asparagus

I had a coupon for veggies at Kroger, so I bought some of their best fruits and vegetables on sale. The broccoli looks like its on steroids & cherry tomatoes are feeling the pain of the weather increased costs. Oh, but the prize is the asparagus if you have the Kroger locality card! $2.99/pound, and the bunch I bought was only 99 cents.

Unfortunately, it was prone to wander. Sometimes these good things are too good to keep. While the clerk rang up my prize and the bagger sacked my score, my asparagus failed to walk into my basket.

Instead, a nice lady dressed in pink, who was parked beside me in the handicapped spot, said “They tried to give me your asparagus! You should go back & get it!”

When I went inside, no one knew anything. So I go out my sales receipt, checked off all the food, and said, “need asparagus!” I found it sitting upright on the asparagus display, ready to be sold again. The staff found another on a different check out counter. We were suddenly flush with asparagus!

Go get yourself some: it’s great with a little olive oil, a touch of garlic, & some rosemary. Broil it or microwave it al dente.
