Ideas and Asparagus

When I read other food blogs I realize that most of mine are food ideas more than recipes, this is one of those ideas posts. I had a girls night away with a group of brilliant women, where we laughed, talked about everything from kids to the worlds problems and ate and drank a little (read A LOT) too much. Sweden also won Eurovision so it was a great night on all accounts.

When I got back I actually went to bed for an hour which I rarely do – but then again I rarely go to bed at 3am either. I am a firm believer in sleep! I also felt the need for tasty food but simple stuff.  All that sugar and bread had made me more than a little farty!

Hence when I got back I had seedbread with avocado, smoked salmon, creme cheese, some horseradish, lemon juice and a little black pepper. It was delicious.

For dinner I grilled some asparagus. Asparagus season is upon us – I love them.  I tend to just cut the hard end off then pour 2-4 tbsp of olive oil on top with plenty of sea salt and pepper.  I then put them in the oven for 20-25 minutes at 200 degrees celsius.

  • IMG_0802soft boiled egg and just dip the spears in
  • with a poached egg on top
  • with parma ham
  • on their own of course
  • with Hollandaise sauce
  • with some of my vinaigrette (ps the key to good dressing is to get air into it so it emulsifies… pop in a jar and shake!)
  •  with shavings of parmesan and some crispy bacon

Basically it is so versatile and so tasty – also a good looking food that makes you feel like you are having a party!
