Deb in Hawaii

Your salad look delicious Simona. I like the use of the paprika in it. Thank you for sharing it with Souper Sundays this week.

I just started the book and need to get my act in gear. ;-)


I am definitely going to make this today!

Simona Carini

Thank you, Deb. It's always a pleasure to contribute :)

Simona Carini

I hope you'll like it, Sally. Enjoy asparagus as long as they are available :)

Wendy Klik

That salad sounds amazing Simona. With our without chicken.


I felt pretty much the same about this memoir, but as you say, sometimes "a reading provides me with material for reflection." Our CTB selections do occasionally take us outside our normal reading preferences/comfort zones.

And asparagus has that effect on me, to buy when it comes in looking good, regardless of price, though I do find a bunch is good for several meals.

Simona Carini

Thank you, Wendy :)

Simona Carini

Thank you, Claudia. That's the nice thing about reading clubs: it nudges us to go where we would't go by ourselves with reading choices. And it is good to think about why a certain narrative does not "work" for us. I find that it usually makes me discover something about myself :)

Ok, doing the the CtB roundup now and still love this recipe . thanks Simona.

Amy's Cooking Adventures

So perfect for spring! This looks amazing!

Simona Carini

Thanks Cathy! We still have asparagus here so I keep eating them :)

Simona Carini

Thank you, Amy :)

Delaware Girl Eats

Well asparagus is wonderful year-round isn't it

Simona Carini

I bought one bunch at the farmers' market yesterday afternoon and the young woman told me this is the last week for asparagus. I bought another bunch :)
