    "I am writing to compliment your employees on a job well done. Bob was very responsive in returning phone calls from the initial contact we made to get preliminary estimates to finish our basement. The foreman was at our house almost every day for two-and-a-half weeks. His work was excellent. He finished everything on or ahead of schedule, left all of the work areas clean, and finished all of the small details to complete the job entirely. Due to the timeliness and quality of their work, we were able to enjoy our finished basement prior to the Thanksgiving holiday as promised."

  • Asparagus: The Perfect Summer Food Sidekick

    [caption id="attachment_1512" align="alignleft" width="349" caption="Asapargus Salad"]Health & Nutrition[/caption]


    Whether you eat it grilled, steamed or plain, asparagus is a delicious, healthy snack. Pare it with some other great vegetables, snacks and dressings, and you have a great salad. Check out this recipe by Martha Rose Shulman from the New York Times Fitness & Nutrition Section, for a great summer meal.

    Some weeks all I want to cook is Italian food, and so it was this week as I availed myself of the last of the season’s asparagus. Italians have a way with this vegetable, both the pencil-thin stalks that grow wild in the countryside and the thicker cultivated varieties.

    Simply steamed or boiled, asparagus can be served with a range of condiments and sauces, from Parmesan and butter to anchovies and capers to gremolata -- a mixture of finely chopped parsley, garlic and lemon zest. Italian cooks also use asparagus in risottos and toss it with pastas; they scramble the thin variety with eggs and use it to fill frittatas. One of my favorite Italian dishes is a crêpe filled with cooked asparagus spears and a little cheese, then baked until bubbly.

    Asparagus is an excellent, low-calorie source of vitamin K, folate, vitamin C, vitamin A and such nutrients as tryptophan, manganese and fiber.
