First Time Cooking Asparagus!!
So last night I made asparagus for my very first time!! It was delicious!! The only thing that I did wrong was eat before dinner but that wasn't all my fault. My very good friend conned me into going over to her house with fresh strawberries!! So I went over to her house and she fed me fresh straberries, pineapple, cheese, crackers, chips/dip, and veggies right before dinner. I had already planned to make the asparagus so I followed through with it. My hubby cooked the steak while I cooked the asparagus. I steamed the asparagus while I cooked onions, garlic and mushrooms and some seasonings together. I chopped up some pecans (p can :)) and drizzled them with a brown sugar and butter mixture and then toasted them in the oven. Toasted pecans are soooooo yummy!! Once they were toasted I added them into the onion, garlic and mushroom mixture for a few minutes. I then took that mixture and topped the asparagus with it! I loved it but couldn't eat all that much since I snacked before dinner :(. My hubby enjoyed it and had seconds!! This is definately something that I would cook again!! I love finding/making good recipes!
