I know – asparagus….but really and truly, we found an awesomely easy and delicious recipe!  The boys (and myself really) have never been asparagus fans.  But we saw Melissa D’Arabian make some and thought we’d give it a whirl…..but she used some ingredients I don’t care for.  I liked the lemon zest idea so I just googled “lemon asparagus recipe”.  I came across a few, but we tried this one from the Food Network website.

Steamed Asparagus with Lemon Butter

It took about 5 mins to prepare and 5 mins to cook.  It doesn’t get much easier than that!  And everyone LOVED IT!  I mean really loved it.  So much that we bought more asparagus the next day.   Now they each want their own bundle of asparagus – because they don’t like sharing!  I think that’s pretty awesome!  I use half the butter it calls for because I like more lemon, less butter flavor.  But this was so easy and yummy!

Imagine the looks we got from other shoppers when each boy had a bag with two bundles of asparagus in it and they were discussing whether we had enough or not….hey, I’m all for them loving a good veggie!  So try it out!   You will be pleasantly surprised!
