Left over mashed potato pie. Oh me, oh my. Now that is some wonderful stuff and we had another couple of pieces of it last night along with a steak the big guy cooked outside. I know I already bragged about that darn pie, but you know what - it just gets better and better. You all just HAVE to try it! Enough said.
Thinking about something different to share with you sometimes causes me to hit the panic button, but I had some asparagus hiding in the fridge from last week so figured I'd have to make a salad to go with dinner. The result - this very tasty white bean and asparagus salad.
Adapted from a Southern Living recipe, this colorful and tasty salad is a great way to top up your fiber quotient for the day without a lot of calories. Blanched asparagus is joined by canned white beans, roasted red peppers, sun dried tomatoes, capers and red onion, all dressed in a mustard sage vinaigrette. It's quick to make and it would be fabulous along with some grilled chicken fresh off the barby though it was no slouch next to our pan grilled steak either. Download White Bean and Asparagus Salad
The big guy went through his honey do list yesterday like a house a fire. I'm tellin' ya, he trimmed trees, got beat up by the bougainvillea, fertilized, weeded and raked the lawn, if you can call our pebble covered front and back yard lawn that is. The pomegranate has sprung it's leaves, the lemon and limes are in blossom and our flowering plums are just ready to explode into full color. It's springtime in the desert - so we hold our breath and enjoy it. Summer will be here tomorrow.
