Easy Greens- Asparagus

Second on my easy greens list is asparagus! These guys I love for the simplicity of it. You can bake them in the oven or slap them on a grill if its that kind of dinner night! Either way you'll love them!

Asparagus was one of the few greens I loved (and I use the word love very loosely) to eat as a kid. I never cared for vegetables on my plate but give me some asparagus and 6 year old me would be forever grateful I didn't have to eat those steamed green trees (broccoli).
