Further proof that we’re nuts

100_3758 smToday offered further proof (though I can’t imagine it was necessary) that my husband and I are nuts.

Weekday. We all come home from work and school.

I’ve scored a small handful of extremely expensive, first-of-the-season asparagus, and we start discussing what we’ll have with our asparagus for dinner.

Next thing I know, I’m making firm polenta, and Ian is picking the herbs for a fresh parsley pesto.

What arrives on the table an hour and a half later is nothing short of extraordinary—polenta crostini topped with pesto, sautéed mushrooms and cheese, with braised asparagus on the side.

I point out to Ian that most other people are heating up TV dinners on a Thursday night…
