Balsamic Roasted Asparagus and Mushrooms

I remember a while back asking Chris if he liked asparagus. He said No. I then asked him if he had ever had it…. again he said No lol! I made it for them the first time with parmesan cheese and both he and Dillon loved it…. so much so that he asked me to make it more often. I wonder what else he doesn’t “like” that he hasn’t ever tried??? I had some mushrooms that I had to use up before they got nasty, so I decided to add them to the asparagus because who doesn’t like roasted mushrooms??

This is a very quick and easy recipe roasted in the oven with mushrooms, balsamic vinegar, dill etc., with a prep time of about 5 minutes. You can’t beat that for a delicious side!

Parmesan Roasted Asparagus and Grape Tomatoes

That is a big title for an easy but delicious recipe lol! This recipe I made again the other night for dinner and wanted to share it with everyone.

It is quick to prepare and roasts in the oven in 20 minutes so your “Side” is ready in no time at all! I added a drizzle of a balsamic vinegar reduction to the top and plates were almost licked clean lol!

Baked Cheesy Asparagus 

I hope everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday had a great day!

Yesterday was another out of town Dr’s appointment for me so I am exhausted but dinner still needed to be made so I at least have posts for today and tomorrow with recipes I hope you all enjoy because today is going to be another long day….

Today Kim and I are making the trek to visit my grandmother, her great grandmother. We are looking at a good 3 or 4 hour round trip but it’s worth it to go see our “Nan.”  Nan is my cooking inspiration.  When I was growing up, she always had delicious meals and treats ready for us whenever we visited her and more than that, she actually loved to cook.  My mother cooked but there was no enjoyment to it like with my Nan.  Even now, there are some recipes that I make, like my Potato Soup, that when I cook it feels like she is right there with me! Memories of her cooking, and more important than that, her acceptance of my crazy personality, are some of my best memories!

Last night with dinner I cooked some asparagus.  I baked it in the oven, smothered in cheese and cream! (And… It passed the chocolate milk test lol)
