I could eat asparagus every day and never get tired of it! Well, if asparagus was in season year round. It's best when the spears are nice and thin, the larger ones don't have that nice crisp texture and they don't taste as good. I steamed some with some tomato slices with dinner last night and it was delicious.
I am assuming everyone has a list of things they disliked as a kid, that at some point in adult life they begin to really enjoy... for me Asparagus is on the top of that list. The other big one for me has been most seafood. I have always been a huge fan of most fish, but I was very indifferent about seafood (shrimp, lobster, clams). I didn't dislike it, but it was so plain tasting that I just didn't care about it. Now, I love it!
