    We really enjoyed this... but giving only 4 stars as I did improvise a bit by combining this with another recipe. I pre-roasted the asparagus for 5 mins @ 450F with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and garlic powder, added some red bell pepper, brown rice instead of white and added about a Tbsp of lemon juice at the end. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Husband loved this recipe. He and my son finished off this one. Made for Tastebud Tickling Travellers for ZWT4.

    This was just fabulous. DH tried it & said this was his idea of comfort food!!! I made as per the recipe, except I used green beans instead of asparagus (personal taste). Next time I'll add more rice, as I was hoping for leftovers for lunch. Thanks Ann for a fabulous recipe. Made for ZWT4.

She was expecting her daughter when the photo was taken. The other photo is Jacob & grandma :), both were taken last Saturday (03/29/08) while we were climbing a local butte. Those two little boys did an amazingly good job of hiking the steep trail (so did grandma!). Food is my passion. I love to cook, I love to read recipes, I have hundreds of cookbooks. My favorite cookbook is Recipezaar! Since I joined in 2002 it has become the first place I go when looking for a recipe. Cooking is what I do for fun. I love to travel! Not only do I get to see new places and meet interesting people - I get to try new food. My other passions are my grandkids!!! Nothing beats grandmahood. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/200_artistrichardneuman-art-prints_.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/FFF/Switzerland-FFF4.gif"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%203/ZWT3-Participation.gif"> <img src="http://www.caymandesigns.com/foodothers/fallswap.jpg"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Stockingswapcopy.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://www.pickle.com/plink/ph/795B07337A4704307B51032E7C590636795E1C512307476E143E5A652E076C347C5F02307A5F0032140741682C4659712C.jpg" border="0" alt="coolmonday-particiation" title="Photo and Video Sharing"/> <a href="http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/?action=view¤t=newtaginethbanner.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/newtaginethbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/RSC%20Banners/RSC11-Participant.jpg"> <img src="http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b224/dejectedwithstars/bannerforswap.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/Swap14.JPG"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <a href="http://www.maploco.com/view.php?id=2412919"><img border=0 src="http://www.maploco.com/vmap/2412919.png" alt="Visitor Map"></a><a href="http://www.maploco.com/">Create your own visitor map!</a>
