I haven’t posted lately; I have been around but busy. When I am not at work I have been doing a little spring cleaning (tossing/giving away a lot of things I haven’t used for a few months), visiting friends, planning our trip to Europe at the end of the month (!!) and, yes, cooking.
My mom has given us asparagus from her garden when she has seen us recently, and I just love it! It’s so delicious and tender, and I love finding new ways to fix it. I love making it with my Venetian Apricot Chicken recipe (and it’s so much better than the store-bought stuff I had for those pictures).
I have also been baking it with olive oil, salt, garlic, and ginger. I tried that with some orange bell pepper (unbaked picture above) and that was a delicious combination as well! Another great way to make asparagus is this simple Asparagus and Onions recipe.
Have you gotten any fresh asparagus this season?
