Carnivore or Vegitarian?

We are aboard Esmeralde for the next month as we renovate our home and tonight is “grill night”.
What is your preference, meat or vegetables?
I am having garlic rosemary crusted rack of lamb, Dorsey is feasting on maple mustard tempeh, with kale sweet potato, beets and pepitas.
Time to eat!

Greetings,
Omnivore here. How do you do your asparagus? I used to simply steam it but of late I have been grilling or sauteing it with balsamic vinegar and a touch of red pepper flakes. If sauteing, I usually de-glaze the pan with a dash of white wine in lieu of the balsamic.

You do know that the Navajo and Apache definition for "Vegetarian" is "he who doesn't know how to hunt!"


I'm a meat eater. Vegetables are OK but it ain't a real dinner unless there's meat on my plate.

All that sounds excellent.

Bruce tends to find a way that he likes something (in this case, asparagus, grilled, with s&p and EVOO) and wants to repeat it forever. I, on the other hand, like to try something different each and every time.

We have a French made tall cylindrical asparagus cooker with inner full height basket and lid. The bottom of the stems sit in water, it boils for around 4 minutes, the tips cook in the steam.
Add butter, salt, pepper as desired. Steaming time can be less if to be served cold "crunchy",then I plunge into cold water to halt the cooking process before adding good olive oil and refrigerating.
Other than that, I`ve not really thought about it.

I'm definitely an omnivore. Can't go long without both meat and vegies.

I roast asparagus in the oven with a light coat of olive oil and a choice of seasoning (salt, pepper, or whatever.) Find boiling takes away some taste and vitamins.

It all looks mighty tasty Bruce. What kind of cocktails are we having?

Cheers.

I'm an omnivore. Like my asparagus anyway the restaurant makes it. I wonder if you can cook it in a microwave?

Funny how some veggies like corn and microwaves go hand in hand.

Never tried asparagus, thinking if like string beans, microwaving it just may make it tough.

Yep Ted, bettet let the restaurant try the diffetent methods...

If you can fry an egg you can do asparagus.

You sure?

There is some pretty fancy microwave cookware that lets you cook many things unimagineable in that box,
