Asparagus with Fried Egg & Parmesan Cheese from Lemony Thyme

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).
