Guest Blogger: Janean from How I Keep Sane

Today, Janean from How I Keep Sane is visiting, and I'll be posting over on her blog! Janean is a super hilarious mom of 2 boys. She's an amazing crafter, and incredibly stylish and artistic. 

Hello! Frame Tales readers.
I am so excited that Tess has asked me to 
guest blog over here.
Today I am going to share 
a super delicious way to make 
Its my, "Easy & Delicious Asparagus Recipe"
Every time I make this vegetable,
(which is all the time, now)
everyone seriously, raves.
I am not joking, people are like doing 
the "mmm" thing when they eat my food.
(a vegetable at that)
I only thought people made those sounds
at the dinner table, in the movies.
Surprisingly, it is not so.
Its so simple its ridiculous, and so worth trying.
So worth it.

I start with 2 bunches of Asparagus,
(I really only buy them if they are $3 ea or less)
And then rinse them off and, 
chop about 3 inches off the bottoms.
Then I arrange them on my pan,
like so. I drizzle Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
(EVOO if you're a Rachel Ray fan)
Then sprinkle salt, about 1tblsp.

Then I cook them in the oven at about 
350 degrees for aprox 20min, 
but I like mine nice and crispy at the 
tops and super soft on the stem.
These are seriously divine.
I usually pair mine with rice
and chicken or fish, or steak if we're 
feelin really fancy.
But really, they are so good, and the flavor
is soo versatile (think heavenly broccoli,)
 that they could be used as the veggie side for any meal really.
My husband and I will eat all of them.. 
They are that good.
Oh, and my 3 year-old even eats them!
Now, that, is a good veggie recipe.

Hope I have inspired you to eat healthier (sorta.)
