Welcome to spring with Australian asparagus #aussiespears

Through the good services of Bizzy Lizzie who administrates the Canberra Food Bloggers Facebook group some of us elected to receive a gift of fresh asparagus from the Australian Asparagus Council. I received a small box today with half a dozen bunches of asparagus including some baby asparagus.

In the parcel was an ice brick, a new tea towel wrapping the bundles of asparagus and a salad cup. The salad cup was a nice touch. I read the instructions and it’s a little complicated. If I was really into salad and was willing to make a salad dressing it would be a great lunch container. It has inside compartments for salad pieces of different densities. It also has a little sealable cylinder for salad dressing.

I like that there were bunches of baby asparagus too.

I posted a few photographs on Instagram and Facebook using the tag #aussiespears and it was good to check out other recipients social media feeds.

For dinner I made a dish of baked skinless chicken thigh with hot and spicy balsamic asparagus with sweet potato chips and honey steamed vegetables.

Other than the gift of the free asparagus, tea towell and the salad cup I have not been remunerated in any way to write this post.
