Gratitude Monday - The Christmas Asparagus Edition

We had Christmas Dinner last night with Mike's mom and sister. That alone is something for which to be grateful and I am.
But among the foods on offer was my MIL's pickled asparagus. I don't recall ever having tried pickled asparagus anywhere and I've always been curious.
My goodness it's good.
This was her own asparagus grown in her garden and picked and pickled at its peak.
I liked it so much that she gave us the jar to take home.
I have pickled asparagus in my refrigerator, and for it I am grateful.

Pickled asparagus sounds wonderful. I wish my asparagus would produce more than one or two shoots. (Perhaps I need to plant more...)
Glad you had a nice dinner.

That sounds delicious! My son requested bacon wrapped asparagus with dinner last night and it was enjoyed by all! Happy you had a nice dinner and grateful I had the same.

Bag Lady, planting more would be worth it.

Hmm, I like asparagus, like pickles... yet have never tried pickled asparagus!

I'm very grateful for the idea, will look for it.

And happy, happy, happy new year Leah!
