Simple, Healthy and Delicious

Asparagus is deliciously in season right now.  Oh how I love those slim, tender shoots.  When they are in season, I tend to put them on everything.  Today, I created a simple and easy lunch and I wanted to share it with you.

Steam a bit of asparagus for 5 minutes (I break mine up into bite sized pieces before steaming).  While that is going, 'bake' a medium potato in the microwave.  Chop up a bit of smoked turkey breast.  Melt a couple tbsp of butter with a couple tablespoons of lemon juice.

When the potato is done, open it up.  Pour the asparagus over it, top with the diced turkey and finish by drizzling the butter/lemon juice mixture over the top.  Finally, sprinkle with coarsely ground sea salt.  Delish!



And don't forget to pick up your brand new kits over at Elle's Studio today. Elle just put up two beautiful kits full of exclusive goodies!  Check it out.



Have a wonderful day!

  2. Yum! We never get very good asparagus where I am but my nana had a huge asparagus bed and we used to eat it every meal when it was in season when I was younger. Thanks for reminding me of a very happy time.

    2. Jessica, when you get fresh asparagus, you must rinse it, then hold it at either end and then bend it in the middle, letting it break on it's own. use the end with the tip, the rest will be stringy and tough. My MIL uses more of it then is recommended as well and the result is the same as you describe. It's still edible, just not enjoyable. If you're thrify, you're likely to thrift people away from eathing it, LOL.
