Oven Roasted Asparagus

Tonight we had roast beef sandwiches and oven roasted asparagus. For those that know me, know I am not a huge veggie eater. I am very particular about how I eat them. I love the ones I love and hate the ones I hate. Asparagus was on sale at the grocery store so I got it half out of the excitement of a good deal and half out of guilt to cook more veggies for Michael's new diet. I only did half the bunch because I didn't want to throw away the other half since I was only cooking for two and knowing that I probably wouldn't like it. That was the biggest mistake. I was literally sad when I finished my asparagus because there wasn't more. I could have probably eaten the whole bunch by myself. I got this recipe today from the new show Kitchen Boss on TLC. I highly recommend this recipe. soooo yummy. Now I get to eat the other half for lunch tomorrow. So quick and easy.
