Simple Asparagus: Heather-Style

Whats the point of a blog if you aren't going to post regularly? Believe me I KNOW! When I find a blog that I enjoy, I often times get very irate if the blogger does not post regularly, and then I completely lose interest.

In my last post, I had said that I would try to be better about becoming more regular, and I want to dearly apologize as I did not keep up with my end of the bargain. That being said, there are no excuses except that August was a very busy month. From this day forward, I will try to update atleast once a week or my reader's can kick my butt! :)

I have been eating a TON of asparagus lately... the summer has been chugging along with a lot of fresh greens and veggies in my kitchen. Asparagus however, is a recent addiction of mine. I discovered it!!! I asked my bestie- Heather, if she knew anything about this veggie before I decided to try it. What do you know? Its her FAVORITE!!! She told me how to cook it, and I make it a at least twice a week the same way she has told me , and its like MAGIC. Delicious & soft and a perfect  healthy accompaniment for any meal!

Simple Asparagus- Heather Style
1 bunch of asparagus
olive oil, salt & pepper to taste.

Cut off all the white ends off each stem. Blanch in hot water for 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a baking dish. Mix in oil, salt & pepper. Bake in oven for 8 minutes at 350. Serve... so soft it just melts :)
