Roasted Asparagus Salad with Chickpeas and Potatoes

To the lady in the red blouse shopping at The Fresh Market last Thursday: Please forgive me for scaring you. I was that crazy woman with the rain-frizzled hair who startled you by yelling “Yes!” over your shoulder as you were bagging your asparagus. I’m really not that dangerous. Ask anybody (well, maybe not the man by the organic strawberries). It’s just that I’ve been waiting so long for asparagus prices to come down from the stratosphere, and when I saw that $2.79 price tag, I couldn’t control myself. I will take your advice and seek help (or maybe just an extra helping of roasted asparagus).

To my family: You don’t know this, but I bought two bunches of asparagus at the store and ate one for lunch on Friday (in this recipe!) I’ve written a poem in the style of William Carlos Williams to express my true feelings about holding out on you like that:

I Am Not That Sorry to Say

I have eaten
a bunch
of asparagus
that you didn’t even know existed

and which
you wouldn’t know about at all
if not
for this blog

Your loss!
They were delicious
so tender
and so green

To my readers: I scared a stranger and deprived my family in order to bring this recipe to you. I hope you’re happy!
