Oven-roasted asparagus is something I look forward to each spring. I usually put them on a sheet pan, glug on a good bit of olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper before tossing into a very hot oven (400-450F) for 10-20 minutes until they're soft and beginning to caramelized. Wanting to cut back on the calories this time, I lightly spritzed them with olive oil spray instead - they turned out just as delicious. Can't wait to make them again.
Now get a load of this photo I took yesterday:
Hmmm.... I'd never seen Misty smashing her ears against the window screen before - I knew there had to be something interesting going on outside.
Yep, I'd say this is interesting - very interesting! We've never had a nest right outside one of the windows before. That little branch was in the way (uh, was!!), but it looked like the nest held two babies and an unhatched egg.
But look at the pic I got today - FOUR BABIES! I snapped nearly 1000 pics and got sunburned waiting in the blazing sun for more than an hour, but this photo made it worth the effort. Happy Spring everyone!!
