This has become a famous dish around our house! I like to make it for company, and friends are always asking me for the recipe. It's so versatile. You can serve it with fish, ham, turkey or chicken. My hobby is collecting recipes. I've put together 12 large notebook-sized books of them over the years—in alphabetical order. Asparagus is up front, of course! My husband and I were both raised on farms. We're retired now and enjoying life on our place surrounded by trees, birds and squirrels.
