It’s unseasonably warm here. I’m hoping that I don’t jinx the weather by saying this, but it’s actually still nice enough out to grill for dinner. In November!
Speaking of grilling…one of my favorite veggie side dishes is grilled asparagus. It’s incredibly easy: arrange fresh asparagus on a sheet of aluminum foil with some minced garlic, salt, pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil. Shape the foil into a packet, and grill alongside whatever else you’re making. Done and done.
If you’re coordinated enough to arrange the asparagus directly on the grill, they’re extra tasty that way. I like the foil method because I have a tendency to lose a spear or two if they’re not contained.
