Is it bad that I have spring fever in the middle of January? (I fear that I just might be in for a cold, harsh reality check later this month.)
Surely I'm not the only one. Anyone else out there with a serious case of Spring Fever?
All it took was a couple of sunny 60 degree days to put me in the mood for Spring.
Yesterday, I even moved the plants that have been spending the winter in my basement, outside for a few days of much needed warmth and sunshine.
All of this warm sunny weather has me in the mood for fresh vegetables too.
On the menu last night --- parmesan crusted asparagus. Perfect for a girl with Spring Fever.
Parmesan Crusted Asparagus
1 bunch of asparagus
1 Tablespoon water
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
3 Tablespoons parmesan cheese
Snap ends off of asparagus stems.
Beat egg and water together in a shallow bowl.
Combine panko, salt and parmesan in another shallow bowl.
Dip asparagus in egg mixture, then in panko mixture.
Lay coated asparagus on a greased, foil lined baking sheet.
Bake 12-15 minutes at 375. (Baking time depends on thickness of asparagus.)
Grilled chicken breasts, parmesan crusted asparagus and roasted baby potatoes - Spring dinner in the middle of January.
Sometimes Spring is a state of mind.
