All three of my children ate asparagus without complaining.
We've tried asparagus before and it wasn't pretty. We are an alternating corn-and-green-beans kind of family. Occasionally we mix it up by serving edamame (who could forget the time we found a snail in our edamame?).
When I planned our August dinners, I sprinkled in several new recipes from Pinterest. Most of the new recipes are for main dishes, but last night I tried a new recipe for a side dish. Thank you, Tastefully Simple, for the recipe for Crispy Baked Asparagus!
My asparagus looked slightly different because I used grated Parmesan rather than shredded because that's what I had on hand.
Of course the kids wrinkled their noses when they came to the table and saw the asparagus on their plates. But the next thing I knew, they had all finished their asparagus without any complaining!
So now we can be a corn-and-green-beans-and-occasionally-asparagus family!
