I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Lemon Garlic Grilled Asparagus

Perfectly steamed asparagus spears grilled on the BBQ in foil for easy clean up. (Also you don't have to worry about them falling through the grill.) A dinner for two side that goes well with just about any protein... salmon, steak, chicken, you name it!

1/2 lb asparagus, trimmed
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsps olive oil
2 tsps minced garlic
zest of 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper to taste (optional)

Preheat the grill to medium heat. Combine the lemon juice and olive oil and toss the asparagus to coat. Lay them in a single layer on a large piece of foil. Top with minced garlic, lemon zest, salt and pepper if using.

Take a second piece of foil and cover, folding each side tightly to seal. Place on the barbecue on direct heat for 10-20 minutes depending on how you like your asparagus and the thickness of the spears. I like mine tender-crisp so I would lean towards just 10 minutes.

When ready open the foil packet and serve with lemon slices.
Serves 2
