One of my friends mentioned this recipe from Allrecipes.com and I immediately knew I was going to try it. I love potatoes and I love asparagus and I love them both roasted…so roasting them together was definitely going to be delicious – not to mention the color was going to be great!
To Grumpy this was “ok” but to me it was awesome! I think his reaction was because of the herbs that were mixed in the dish. I did cut them down quite a bit knowing he might not care for the “herbiness” of the recipe. However, I just couldn’t get enough. As a matter of fact, I had leftovers for two days all to mysel! :o)
What really made this dish special to me was one of the Grad students brought in some tomato chutney for me that he had made (Thanks Rajiv!) and I topped the leftovers off with the chutney – delish! I don’t have the chutney recipe, but I will get Rajiv to do this for me one day (I hope!) so I can blog about it.
