Preparation:Grilled asparagus:
Brush asparagus lightly with garlic flavoried olive oil. Grill until tender
but still crunchy. Serve warm.

Steamed asparagus:
Scatter asparagus in a steamer basket over boiling water until tender but
still crunchy. Drain, then brush lightly with garlic flavored olive oil.
Serve warm.

Boiled asparagus:
Stand asparagus upright in boiling salted water, or lay them across a
wad of foil to keep the heads out of the water. Simmer until tender but
still crunchy. EITHER: brush with garlic flavored olive oil and serve warm,
OR dress with garlic flavored olive oil and an assortment of vinegars,
and serve cold.

Stir fried asparagus:
Break asparagus into 2 inch lengths. Stir fry over high heat in 2
tablespoons of garlic flavored olive oil with a teaspoon or two of grated
ginger. When tender but still crunchy add two tablespoons Chinese rice
wine or dry sherry, 2 tablespoons soy or fish sauce, 1 tablespoon of
Sambal Ooleck (sp? chile garlic paste) and 1 teaspoon of sesame oil.
Thicken with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch stirred into 2 tablespoons of
chicken stock. Serve with rice.

Microwaved asparagus:
Lay asparagus in a single layer on a microwave safe plate. Cover with
microwave safe wrap. Microwave until tender but still crunchy (a minute
or two depending on quantity). Drain, toss with garlic flavored olive
oil, serve warm.
Notes:K75s ARE boring. LOTS of perfectly satisfactory motorcycles are boring.
Gold Wings and Concourses and FJs and Voyagers, for instance.
