Veggie Tuesday


This recipe just reminded me of a time when, I had a car full of kids and one happened to roll down the window and ask this big Lincoln (Pardon me sir do you have any Grey Poupon?) It is hard to discipline a child when you are laughing so hard. Mr Mike was doing the cooking this last week and he made these great vegetables. I was so surprised when he set the plate down in front of me then he pulled out the Grey Poupon. Who would of thought it would add such a perfect flavor. Oh that Mike he has done it again. What a pleasant feast and low in cal to beat.
Red Potatoes and Asparagus
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 red onion chopped
2 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped
4 red potatoes thinly sliced with skin on
1 bunch of asparagus cut into 2 inch strips
Grey Poupon Mustard or Dijon mustard

Heat olive oil in skillet add onion and garlic and cook until onion is softened. Add red skinned potatoes cook for about eight minutes until tender with a fork. Add asparagus and parsley cook for five minutes until tender. Drizzle Grey Poupon on top.

Simple and delicious. I've never used Dijon as a drizzle, but I know it's a wonderful marinade for roasted potatoes. This should be great. too.
