Roasted Asparagus and Brie

Do y’all love asparagus?

I do.

Even when it makes my pee smell.

But, it’s not like Brie cheese is the best smelling stuff either.

In fact, that’s why some people (who shall remain nameless) won’t eat it.

But it’s soooo gooooowwwd!

Plus, it’s like winter, and it’s time to start roasting veggies, and it’s a time (RARE) that I actually want to heat up the house by turning the oven on.

AND P.P.S. it’s so easy to roast veggies, and requires minimal ingredients.

All you gotta do, is rinse your asparagus, chop off the old ends, lightly drizzle some olive oil, and sea salt!

Roast for some 15 minutes or so… then add some slices of brie.

As long as you don’t have a picky smell palate, which is OKAAAAY if you do, no judging here….!!

But it’s pretty stinkin’ good.

Oh muh gawsh, no pun intended there. #palmtoforehead

What’s your favorite roasted veggie? Sweet potatoes? Mmmmm….

~Peace, Love, and Roasted Veggies Y’all

    Roasted broccoli is my absolute favorite, but anything with melted brie is a sure winner!
