Grilled Asparagus

This dish is one of my daughter’s very favorite vegetable dishes, second only to fried okra (which can barely be considered a vegetable with all of the yummy crispy fried coating). Grilled asparagus is the perfect spring side dish and grilling means no pans to wash. Asparagus is best in the early spring and you should look for slender stalks which are the most tender. When snapping the ends off, grab one end close to the base of the stem and the other end about halfway up the stalk, bend both ends downward and the stalk will snap at the point where the tough part starts.

About Mary Ann

Mary Ann Kelley has been creating meal plans online for over 15 years, first as part of TheHomeSchoolMom's cooking resources for busy moms and later on Menus4Moms, which has been highlighted by "Diner's Journal," The New York Times' Blog on Dining Out, and PBS Parents' "Kitchen Explorer."

Mary Ann loves cooking and she loves planning/organizing, so meal planning is a natural intersection of the two. She believes her mission for the meal plans is being fulfilled when visitors let her know that she has helped them save time and money by teaching them to plan ahead and become more efficient in the kitchen.

When Mary Ann is not cooking or publishing, she enjoys reading, researching genealogy, and traveling.
