Recipe Spotlight

Lots of asparagus is grown not too far from our h me. Each spring, when it's being harvested, I'll make several trips to the fields. I put about 40 lbs. in the freezer...with what's left, we gorge ourselves on fried asparagus, beef and asparagus, scalloped asparagus, etc.! It's no problem feeding my husband (he's retired; we have two grown children and four grandsons). He'll eat almost anything I put in front of him. We like this dish with a salad and dessert. It's so easy to prepare—i
