Weekend Recipe

Okay sorry to be so late posting today but I thought it would be a waste of a GLORIOUSLY beautiful day to do anything but lay out side and soak up some Vitamin D (which has some great health benefits). So if you saw my Facebook status today, yes I really did layout (it was 75 degrees here in Starkville!) I couldn't quit thanking God for giving us such a great day! And did you see that sunset? He is WONDERFUL!

As I am typing this, I am eating some absolutely delicious asparagus. Some of my frat brothers enjoy stealing pieces when I cook it, so I thought y'all might enjoy it too! Thanks to Mom for this addictive (but healthy!) recipe!

You'll need:
            20 stalks of thin asparagus (this is about 1/2 of the bundle you can buy at Wal-mart)
            Olive Oil (in a sprayer - if you're cheap like me you can just use a spray water bottle)
            2 tbsp of GRATED Parmesan cheese (shredded will not work - trust me)

Lightly spray your pan/cookie sheet with Olive Oil. Break the bottom of the stalk off and lay the pieces on your pan. Spray your asparagus with olive oil (lightly!) and then sprinkle with the cheese!

Bake at 350 for around 8-10 minutes until your cheese browns! Sit down and enjoy!!

And I'm going to go ahead and warn you - when you go to the bathroom after eating this beware of the asparagus pee! It's a pretty interesting chemical reaction in your body but I won't bore you (you can read about it here.)

So I leave you for tonight to go study (on a Saturday night woohoo). I hope you had a great Saturday and a fantastic Sunday!


  1. I just saw the guy from Cake Boss make this on his cooking show yesterday! Lol

  2. I have always been a fan of asparagus! And I really picked it up a notch or two last summer when I would grill it all the time! LOVE it!
