There are times when I just want to start the week with some indulgence. Even with the temperature shooting up to 82F/28C, I care less and start the oven. Spring is in full form and asparagus is everywhere in the market. My absolute favorite way to enjoy asparagus is to either roasted or blanched, topped with soft-boiled eggs. But then, the sudden crave of creamy gratin gets on my mind and I go with the flow.
