King’s Cadets Asparagus

Years ago, I bought this label at a swap meet. I love asapargus… and love the soldiers marching to the tune of the asparagus….or? My kitchen is the original 50’s kitchen that was built with the house and has dark green (trim) and yellow tile (counter top), so this was the perfect match. It’s framed in square lucite.

    I love choosing a name like King’s Cadets for asparagus because both the cadets and the stalks of asparagus stand up so straight.

    Now that you say your kitchen is still the original built with your 1950s house I’d love to see photos of it here.

    I love the red striped pants. I’ve always loved that kind of marching band pants. And now that I’m in such a conducting frenzy between leading my college and high school bands, I’m wild about the hats, which I’ve started collecting so I’m prepared color wise for any further conducting extravaganzas. (I’m uniform and hat free but here I am conducting the band at my alma mater, the University of Wisconsin, doing some of my songs this last October:

    You are a true Renaissance woman. I love marching bands and am always fascinated watching conductors or any orchestra.

    When my kitchen is in less of a frenzy I will post some photos. Truly nothing special, but does have a great O’Keefe & Merritt stove that mostly works. The broiler is called The Grillevator and doesn’t work, but is shiny and perfect since I don’t think it’s ever been used.

      I had an O‚ÄôKeefe & Merritt stove for the longest time so am quite familiar with The Grillevator! I finally had to sell it because I was trying to consciously be more healthy and that would involve me doing some cooking. There was always trouble with the pilot lights so I had to retire it and get a new stove about 8 years ago. I’m 60% sure it’s still in my storage garage though.
