    Wow. Roasted asparagus are one of my favorite things. Put 'em on a cookie sheet, sprinkle with olive oil, salt, and pepper and bake at 400 for 10-12 minutes and yum. And avocados are awesome. Especially in guac.

    That is my favorite way to eat asparagus too! Love it! I'm also a huge eggplant eater. Love the stuff. I'll eat pretty much any vegetable except not a fan of peas and brussel sprouts. I really want to like brussel sprouts but just don't. I've tried them many different ways and they just aren't good to me.

    I will have to find the pea salad recipe I have, has hard boiled egg in it too.

    Hey, I'm willing to host a hen (and Rooster Party) up this way. The mountains are not far, maybe 30 minutes. OR we could do it right here in Greenville and take advantage of our GREAT downtown. I think it would be fun. Have to find who has trivia. The only place I know for sure does it on Tuesday nights.
    And we could have one evening at my house and BBQ, have fire in the firepit, etc.

    Let's do it

    This sounds like so much fun! Count me in!

    Roasted beets are fabulous. But I love beets anyway.

    I ate so much roasted asparagus that now, I can't eat it anymore.

    You, and Oprah, and those damn beets! The problem for me is that I just don't like most root vegetables.

    I can eat asparagus until I can't stand myself!

    Beets and carrots are about it for me and root veggies

    Oprah said she ate so many beets that her urine turned red, and she thought she was bleeding to death! She called the doctor, all in a panic!

    For years, I never liked asparagus, until my son made it that way this past summer on the BBQ, along with zuchinni and eggplant. Now that is the only way I love to eat veggies. I'll make them in the oven on a cookie sheet that way, since there's about 3 feet of snow to get to the BBQ.

    We cook ours that way, too, even good the next day! I mix mine in a bowl with the olive oil, s&p, and sesame seeds, then roast on a pan. So easy and good for you.

    All this talk about peas makes me think of my nephew. His little girl won't eat peas unless they mix them with applesauce!
