“Back in the saddle again…” I just love the delicious smell of grilling goodness. Don’t you? It tops the list of signs of spring right up there with birds singing, flowers blooming, and coats discarded in the grass. My hubby has been quite the grill master since long before I met him. He is quite gifted at the grill (just ask him, he’ll tell you!). In fact, he is better now than ever since the kids got him the Smoke Hollow 4-in-1 Grill for Father’s Day last year. It is Ah.Ma.Zing and has all he could ever want (in my humble opinion). It has a gas side, a charcoal side, AND a smoker box. I mean seriously. Amazing. It is THE ultimate in Father’s Day gifts. He has been using it rain, shine, and snow. So, to honor the beginnings of the official season of grilling, I thought I’d share with you my (tiny) contribution to grilling. That would be, the vegetables. In this case, asparagus and mushrooms.
Anyone who knows me knows that short of making desserts, I’m not much use in the kitchen. For me to make it, it MUST be super easy AND super delicious. Luckily, this recipe is both. Fair warning, I’m not a food blogger so the images and directions you are about to see are all real and as I attempt them. So without further ado, here is how you make Easy and Amazing Asparagus.
-cooking spray: Some people are EVOO people, not me, that’s just too fancy. But, if that’s you, have at it.
-lemon juice: 1-2 Tbs will do ya.
-Private Selection (Kroger Brand) Citrus & SavorySeasoning: a few generous sprinkles
-Garlic Parmesan Seasoning- or just mix Parmesan cheese and some garlic. Then again, I’m all about easy so I just sprinkle a bit of this.
- Take aluminum foil and fold up the sides to make a little “dish.”
- Snap off the ends of the asparagus.
- Place them inside the foil.
- Spray to evenly cover with canola spray (or EVOO).
- Sprinkle with lemon juice.
- Sprinkle on the Citrus & Savory. Be sure to mix to evenly coat.
- Sprinkle on the Garlic Parmesean Seasoning. Again, coat evenly. They should look about like this:
- Give them to your husband. He will put them on the grill. Warning: He may take a few out because he likes grill marks and he thinks his way is better.
- Leave on the grill for roughly 15 minutes, more if you like them squishy (it’s a technical term) or less if you like them crispier.
I sure love grilling season!
