It's fantastic when spring begins, and the fresh produce arrives. Happily my boyfriend enjoys asparagus as much as I do. I roasted asparagus and then wrapped the spears in jamon serrano. Trader Joe's is carrying a new mixture of Spanish charcuterie. The jamon serrano reminded my boyfriend of prosciutto, and the saltiness was a nice contrast to the asparagus. I experimented with cooking quinoa in my Zojirushi rice cooker. Treated just like rice, it was very easy to make and has a nutty flavor. I roasted cod fillets and made a roasted tomato, cilantro and kalamata olive tapenade. Light but filling and healthier than my cold weather cooking.
