Two of my favorite things are ready to come out for spring, and that’s asparagus and rhubarb.  I love these first vegetables of the year.   When I was little I loved eating rhubarb straight from my grandma’s garden with salt on the stalk.  Now, I love making rhubarb sour cream snack cake.  And I love a simple warm asparagus salad, or roasted asparagus, or asparagus and pasta.  So many great dishes can be made with these two vegetables. I can’t wait for you to go to Goshen’s Farmer's Market or The Shipshewana Flea Market, pick up some, and enjoy this first taste of spring in Amish Country.
