Snappy Side

This weekend a friend and I rented The Awakenening and picked up dinner from a local bakery. The movie left more to be desired. I mean, it wasn't bad but it was a bit confusing and sad...really sad! The dinner, however, was delicious! The bakery is called Broadstreet and offers sandwiches on homemade breads, pasta, salads, quiche, and even "real" food. I got the roasted chicken BLT without the B. I know, kind of odd but I don't like the way they do the "B." They crumble it up and just toss it through the chicken. Anyway, I got it on focaccia. Yum! This place gives HUGE sandwiches...like two in one! So, I had leftovers last night, but I wanted something to go with it. I decided to snap my tiny, thin asparagus and roast it with some balsamic vinegar. OH it was SO good! And just think about the good vitamins and nutrients in the asparagus. Because of that, this is my quick and simple entry to Sweetnicks ARF Tuesday. Stop by and see the other entries! Balsamic Roasted Asparagus
1 bunch asparagus
balsamic vinegar
salt seasoning

Preheat oven to 425 F. Snap asparagus and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and sprinkle with the salt seasoning. Cook for about 10-12 minutes, depending on how crisp you want it. Enjoy!

Yum, Broadstreet, I haven't been there in years! They do have awesome food though :)

You know, I've done asparagus with olive oil and s/p, but never tried balsamic vinegar. I'll have to try that sometime, thanks for the great idea, it looks delicious!

Have a wonderful week :)

Stacy - You should go back...SO good! I did this a couple of times and it's great!

Peabody - Ditto!

Gail - You should try some time.

Sarah - I'm sorry, friend! I've thought of you several times this week with certain food items. Surely they have goat cheese!

Kristen - I'm SO glad you liked it. So simple and healthy.
