Asparagus and Egg Sandwich

When I was young I spent many hours at my grandparents home - memories that I cherished. My grandparents, Theresa and Vincent came to American in the great immigration waves at the beginning of the 1900's from Italy. Along with their desires for a better life here they brought their love of food and preparing food. My passion for cooking began with these two wonderful people sitting in their kitchen as they prepared feast after feast for our family. Their cooking was so simple with fresh ingredients lovingly prepared sharing with me the family traditions. As a young girl it appeared to me that my grandmother was always cooking - even before church on Sunday she would start her meal just having to add the finishing touches when we all descended on their home for Sunday dinner. I loved all her cooking although my favorite was her impromptu meals she make just for me when I would top by her home. One of my favorites was her Asparagus and Egg Sandwich, so good I couldn't stop eating.
