I am filling in for Jean, again.  Many people are now growing their own asparagus, ourselves included, they might like some recipes.


2 lb asparagus
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 can deep fried onions

Cook cut up asparagus until tender.  Do not overcook.  Place 2 cans cream of mushrooms soup on bottom of casserole dish.  Add cooked asparagus and spread evenly.  Spread cheese over asparagus and cover with deep fried onion.  Cake 375 degrees for 45 minutes.  Serves 4-6


2 lb fresh asparagus
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 c butter or margarine
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 c Parmesan cheese, grated

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Butter a 1-quart casserole dish.  Break or cut off tough ends of asparagus stalks.  Wash asparagus tips well with cold water.  With vegetable peeler, scrape skin from lower part of stalk only.  In large skillet, add salt to 1/2 inch water,  bring to boil. Add asparagus spears,  cover and boil vigorously 8-10 minutes, or until just tender.  Drain.  Layer half of the asparagus in prepared baking dish; dot with half of the butter and sprinkle with half of pepper.  Repeat with the rest of the asparagus, butter and black pepper. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top.  Bake for 5 minutes or until hot.

Hi Marilyn! I just love asparagus. Yes, I too grow some. Not as much as Martha or Jean!
It will reach 80┬║ here today. We go to our parade and fireworks tonight.
Happy Fourth to all of you ladies.

We are cloudy in Ohio...65 degrees! Nice to be cool..but we are so wet! More rain coming in this afternoon....I would love to lay a pipe line all the way out West...and share all our water! Wish it could be done! We have more than enough....our part of the State has a high water EVERYTHING is wet! Squish as you walk! And we drain our land off into the creek..even that is high! Our fireworks may be movies of last years'!!!!
Enjoy your day!

We have had some real bad electric storms with winds. They would come and just when you thought you could go outside, they would start pouring down again. I hope they are over now.
