    I’m with you Clayton, those snappy sticks are kinda slimy and gross.

    I remember hating asparagus as a child, but when I tried it recently, found I liked it.
    Ah, if only I had my adult tastes back then!

    depends on how you cook them. about the only way I like them is lightly fried, preferably in butter and a light, sweet vinaigrette sauce

    Grilled is good too, and I didn’t like Snappy Sticks for my first 44 years.

    Only time I’ve ever liked asperagus was a restaurant in Tigard on a trip to Portland. I don’t know how they spiced it, but it was really good.

    I love asparagus any way, anytime! Try tossing it with olive oil and lemon juice or balsamic then grilling it.

    Asperagus shouldn’t snap when served. It should be fork tender but without a hint of mushyness. It should be served hot, thoroughly covered with real butter and a dash of salt. Broccoli should be cooked and served the same way. I am 67 and have loved asperagus since childhood. I also enjoy broccoli. Dislike of these vegetables is probably due to improper cooking or lack of sufficient real butter.

    I like to saute asparagus in a bit of olive oil, with fresh garlic, and some red bell peppers. Then toss with some fresh gated parmagiano and s few pine nuts. OMG good!

    I conned my children into liking cauliflower and broccoli by cutting them into florets (the veg not the kids) and calling them trees.
    “Eat your green trees and your white trees” Actually worked.

    There’s a huge difference between vegans and vegetarians. Vegetarians eat eggs and cheese, while vegans don’t. And there are a lot more vegetables than there are meats, so no you don’t have the eat your broccoli, George.

    Snappy sticks are great, when they’re snappy. When they’re overdone and limp like mom cooked them, well…

    Yes, If only we had our adult tastes back then we wouldn’t have spent so long at the dinner table trying to eat something we hated then.
