Asparagus with Poached Eggs and Kitchen Ideas

This is a super-simple side dish that I made the other day to accompany some grilled steak. Since I've had carb overload lately, I decided to have meat and veggies only. I roasted the asparagus, but you could grill it as well.

Here's how you do it!

Trim the hard ends off of the asparagus, place into a baking dish, drizzle with oil and top with chopped/minced garlic (as much as you want) and salt/pepper. Bake in the oven at 400F until the ends crisp up. It should take around 15 minutes. Top the asparagus with a poached egg. If you want to keep your egg together try adding 3 tablespoons of white vinegar to a medium saucepan filled 1/2 - 3/4 of the way with water. Bring the water to a boil, turn down until it reaches a gentle simmer and then add the eggs. Place the eggs on top of the asparagus and sprinkle with fresh parm-reg, lemon zest, salt and pepper.


And on a kitchen-decorating note-- A few months ago I was searching for a utensil holder. All of the holders were either wooden or stainless steel cups with zero decoration and zero room for utensils. I had bought this pitcher a while back to decorate my kitchen, but it didn't have an actual purpose. It occurred to me that it was the perfect size to hold utensils. Now the pitcher has a use and it looks adorable.

The best way to start is to sign up to different Social Networking sites like Facebook, My - Space,
twitter, hi5 and bookmarking sites like delicious, digg, stumble, technorati
etc. You have a website and you have been dealing with many SEO services for quite some
time and you found out that no matter how hardworking you are and
no matter how hard you try to handle such situation, your site
is still not ranking well on the search engines.
Firstly, link building helps a lot in making the visitors and search engines find your site.
