Recipe of the Week
Grilled Asparagus and Potato with Tarragon Brown Butter
12 spears asparagus, trimmed
2 yellow potatoes, sliced 1/4 inch thick
sea salt and fresh black pepper
6 tablespoons salted butter
2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon
1. Spray the asparagus and potato slices with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
2. Heat a grill to medium and cook asparagus about 2 minutes until tender. Cook potato about 5 minutes until browned on both sides.
3. While the grill is heating, melt the butter in a small, heavy bottom sauce pan over medium heat. Once melted the butter will turn foamy and then subside. Continue to cook and watch carefully as lightly browned specks begin to form at the bottom of the pan. Remove from heat and place on a cool surface to stop the butter from cooking further. Toss in the tarragon and set sauce aside while grilling the veggies.
4. Serve the asparagus spears and potatoes with the butter sauce drizzled over the top.

Quote of the Week
“The first supermarket supposedly appeared on the American landscape in 1946. That is not very long ago. Until then, where was all the food? Dear folks, the food was in homes, gardens, local fields, and forests. It was near kitchens, near tables, near bedsides. It was in the pantry, the cellar, the backyard.”
