Again today, I was in a hurry running errands and while I was out, I decided to stop by one of my favorite store, Wegman’s, purchased crab cakes, went to the Latino area and got a box of ripe baked plantains and last, stopped by the produce department to get fresh asparagus. Then I hurry home and made the whole meal in 20 minutes. Sweet!
