Default Wine Garlic Asparagus

My MIL, FIL, BIL and soon to be SIL came over for New Years dinner today.

I knew that SIL was a vegetarian so I tried a new recipe I found online. It was VERY nice!! The only problem was that I used frozen Asparagus instead of fresh (I won't make that accident again).

1 lb asparagus
1 tbsp olive oil (or butter)
1 tbsp minced garlic
1/4 cup red wine
1/4 cup rasins (yes raisins)

In a skillet, heat oil - stir in garlic until fragrant. Add asparagus, toss with oil and garlic and cover. Let cook on medium heat until tender crisp (4 - 5 minutes).

Add wine and rasins... stir then simmer until red wine evaporates.

So good! Who knew rasins and garlic would taste so good together?

That sounds like a quick and easy recipe that I can make.

sounds good except the rasins LOL i hate rasins. Asparagus is one of the easiest things to make. I usually just drizzle a little olive oil, sea salt and pepper and cook in over for 5-10 min until done. I love asparagus...could eat it every day

the monkeys make me do it
