Here is the Valentine Sami made me..
Yesterday after stuffing myself like a PIG at Tap Rock I went by Safeway. They have fresh asparagus for $1.46!!! I should have bought more. Maybe today or tomorrow. Normally it's about $4-5. This is great. I love it.
After getting the blog out and the Smilebox made I took Dude for a run
to the trash can and put it on the road. Then to PJ and Dave's to take water out of their fish pond. It was full to the tippy top. Came back and the "boys" were showing off for each other back in the trees..... LOL. Not a hen in sight!

National Almond Day
Spicy Roasted Almonds
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
2 tablespoons Worcestershire
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 cups whole almonds
Coarse salt to taste
Melt the butter slowly in a medium-size saucepan and stir in the spices. Add the Worcestershire sauce and the nuts. Stir until the almonds are well-coated with the butter mixture.
Turn the nuts out onto a shallow baking sheet (no need to grease it) and roast the nuts in a preheated 350° oven for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Transfer to a serving bowl and toss with coarse salt.
Serve warm, or if you prefer, cool the nuts and store them in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks. Makes 3 cups.
