ARF/5-A-Day #97

by Cate on November 21, 2007

Even though Thanksgiving is only two days away, that didn’t stop food bloggers from thinking of wonderful ARF/5-A-Day contributions. Let’s get to them.

More Bread and Cheese, Please gets us started off this week with her homemade Chicken Noodle Soup, perfect for the chilly weather we’ve been having lately:

Cooking Is Medicine serves up a hearty, cheesy broccoli casserole – the buttery Ritz topping looks delicious!

Even though her Thanksgiving is long over, Sarah from What Smells So Good shares a Vegan Thanksgiving Smoothie for the rest of us:

Newcomer My Mother’s Recipe File, an offshoot of The Modern Apron, joins us with her take on Brussels sprouts with Penne with Chicken and Brussels Sprouts. Looks like the perfect weeknight meal when time is short.

The Greedy Gourmet is back this week with a deliciously simple offering, Avocado, Pear and Bacon Salad. Beautiful plating!

Even though she just had a baby on Monday, that didn’t stop Sarah from Cucina Bella from participating this week. Her Green Beans with Brown Butter would make a nice and easy side dish for your Thanksgiving table:

And as for me? During a short run to the grocery store today, I snagged a bunch of fresh asparagus. After a quick search on AllRecipes, I decided to go with Sauteed Garlic Asparagus. I usually roast them, but this way was uber-easy and just as tasty. Finishing them off with a little smattering of sea salt, and I was happily munching away in no time.

Won’t be posting tomorrow … The Husband is working late, Nicholas has a half-day at school and we have a very full evening planned with Thanksgiving preparations, so in the meantime, from the Sweetnicks kitchen to yours … Happy Thanksgiving!

Sauteed Garlic Asparagus
Recipe courtesy of AllRecipes

Yield: 4 servings

3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 bunch fresh asparagus
3 cloves garlic, chopped

Melt the butter or margarine in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and asparagus spears; cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until asparagus is tender. If you like your asparagus well done, reduce heat and cook an additional 10 minutes.

I found beautiful asparagus to make tomorrow and I was planning to roast it. I think I will give this recipe a try instead.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
