Grilled Asparagus

Grilled asparagus
July 18, 2011

My son loves asparagus. I mean, really loves it. He will eat a whole entire bunch of it if you let him. Honestly, I think he just likes to wait a few hours and then he laughs when he pees and it smells like asparagus.

Boys will be boys.

Grilling it is one of my favorite ways to prepare it aside from roasting it. Its not a science and there is really no recipe.
So go grill you some, eat it, then pee!

    If I can’t grill it I bake it or roast it! It is the best. You pop it in and forget about it and then tada! Perfecto Asparagus! Great photo!
