Summer Vegetable Faceoff: Peas or Asparagus?

Summer Vegetable Faceoff: Peas or Asparagus?

Here's a little Thursday fun. What do you prefer - peas or asparagus? Yes, yes - we know that we don't have to choose between them. They are gloriously in season right now, abundant in the farms and markets. And yet - a faceoff. Which one gets you more excited this time of year? Long, crunch asparagus spears? Or tender peas, fresh from the pod?

While we're at it, any favorite recipes for either of this spring treasures?
