Roasted Asparagus and Parsley Potatoes

You can just season a steak however you like or serve with chicken or pork chops instead. But these potatoes and asparagus are SO good!
I got the asparagus recipe from Cooks.com and the potatoes from Allrecipes.com. I made them almost like the recipe directed.

Roasted Asparagus

Asparagus
Olive Oil
Salt
Pepper
Garlic powder

I don't have measurements because it doesn't really matter.
Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Wash and trim off about an inch of as much asparagus as you want. Place in a single layer in a pan. Drizzle from top to bottom with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and freshly ground pepper and just a couple pinches of garlic powder. Then stick it in the oven for 8-10 minutes. You don't want them to get too wrinkly.

Parsley Potatoes

2 cans New potatoes
1/4 cup Butter
1/4 cup chopped Parsley
1/4 tsp. Dried marjoram

In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add parsley and marjoram. Add the potatoes and stir gently until coated and heated through.

Mmmm! I've love, love, love asparagus. I've cooked it in the oven w/ olive oil, salt, and pepper before, but never with garlic powder. Sounds delicious! I'm a garlic lover myself...

I've never had potatoes from a can. I guess it always sounded kinda yucky to me - like the potatoes would be squishy or something - but these look really good. I might just have to venture out of my comfort zone! :)

i made my asparagus like this the other night and I LOVED it - my favorite way now.

So about this blog...

I love to cook. I don't get to experiment with as much as I'd like, but I try what I can. I watch Food Network all the time and love trying things I see.
My twist is that I never follow a recipe completely. So, in my posts I'll tell you where I got the idea and the basic recipe, but I'll post the recipe the way that I made it.

All photographs on this blog will be my own, so it will be what food/recipes that I use really look like.
