I do have a secret though.  Well not so secret anyway.

For long-cooked flavor in a flash, try this easy method for delicious Braised Carrots and Asparagus.I finally was accepted to participate in the famous Sunday Supper Movement.  Look for it on my blog in a few.

So what happened was this.

I needed to practice a dish that I plan to make.  So I rounded up the family and on Friday evening we had Sunday Supper.  I served these braised carrots and asparagus as our side dish and oh my it was delicious.

I am so excited to start participating in this incredible movement.  I will fill you in on it later.  For now enjoy the green and orange veggies.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
