Grilled Lemon Asparagus ~ Goat Cheese & Pine Nuts

Whoa this is different. Just a couple days ago we were out in the backyard, grilling asparagus, riding whales, and wearing sandy clothes. Now we are in day two of a predicted seven day rain stretch, wearing fleece, with the stomach bug...

But the good news is that fun things are still happening like my best friend having a baby girl this weekend!!!!!! and some of my food being shared like Summer Tomato & Ricotta Bruschetta at Fine Cooking, How and Why to Eat Local at Free People, and Grilling Pizza at the MV Patch. It's all good.

Grilled Lemon Asparagus ~ Goat Cheese & Pine Nuts:
serves 2

1 bunch fresh asparagus, bottoms trimmed (mine was from Morning Glory Farm)
1 lemon, sliced
olive oil
salt & pepper
2 small handfuls of pine nuts
2 small handfuls of crumbled goat cheese (leave out for vegan)

Toss asparagus spears and lemon slices with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Lay on a hot grill and cook until golden, flipping the lemons and rotating the spears for even cooking.

Toast the pine nuts in a dry pan until golden. Arrange asparagus on a plate, pile on pine nuts, and goat cheese. Serve with lemons for squeezing.
