Steamed Asparagus with Fried Egg & Shaved Parmesan Cheese.
Cappuccino got her here….but this dish kept her at the table. My daughter favors vegetarian dishes and because of her I’m drawn to recipes that I know she’ll enjoy.
I saw this dish in a magazine while waiting at a doctor appointment. Let me just say this about that. I can put off a doctor appointment with the best of them. I hate them, avoid them to the bitter end. The only thing that makes them marginally tolerable is the vast array of magazines. I LOVE food magazines…..love them. And with my photographic memory (amazing iPhone camera) I don’t have to buy them all. (Not sure if this is a copyright violation, but I snap pictures of recipes and food pictures every chance I get….shhhh).
