Easy as Roasting Asparagus

I don't think this counts as a recipe, but it is so delicious, and Solar Powered asked for it - so here it goes.

Roasted Asparagus (adapted from the Gourmet Cookbook)

Olive oil (about 2-3 TBS)

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Line a sheet pan with parchment and wash asparagus. Chop off bottom (woody part) of asparagus) and place asparagus spears in pan. Drizzle generously with olive oil. Salt and pepper. Roast in oven for 10-15 minutes until cooked through - don't let them burn.

Delicious! Spring is coming!

Wishful Thinking

Happy Monday. I don't know why this is underlining my post, but here goes. If I ever get a good night of sleep again, I would celebrate with a cup of this "Brioche" tea. It is the most delicious I have ever tasted and I need to trek back to Beverly Hills to buy more immediately :)
If you were taking a very short trip sans bambino, where would you go - luxe resort with all sorts of amenities that isn't quite as scenic, or impossibly romantic, lush and gorgeous resort that is a little more bare bones (i.e no TV in the rooms)? I am trying to decide btw the Ritz St. Thomas and Caneel Bay on St. John for a quick little Caribbean getaway.

Oh, and someone is walking. Yikes - happy Monday!
