~Tokens of Love~

 I ask you, is there anything more romantic than a man bearing vegetables from his own garden?
~A gift from Mr. Kattywhompus~

I think I'll cook something delicious to reward him for his efforts. This recipe from his great Aunt is on the dinner menu tonight.

Aunt Bob's Asparagus Casserole

3 cups fresh asparagus, chopped and steamed (water too)
(2, 10 oz. cans of canned asparagus, with water)
1 cup cubed cheese
1 1/2 cups cracker crumbs
1 cup milk
1/4 cup roast red pepper
1 tsp salt (I use 1/2 tsp.)
1/4 cup melted butter

Set butter aside. Gently toss remaining ingredients together in a large bowl. Place mixture in a 9"X 9" baking dish and drizzle butter over the top. Bake for 30-40 minutes at 350 degrees.

Aunt Bob is the wife of Uncle Louie, of  Uncle Louie's Apple Cake fame.

Until next time...

  9. We've enjoyed several messes of asparagus from our own patch. I love to cut it into 2" chunks and stir-fry it with some garlic for a couple minutes, add some shredded Asiago cheese and serve. Or in an omelet with red pepper and onion. Yum!
