Made Chicken Cordon Bleu tonight, for the first time. I'm not a fan of asparagus, but when it's wrapped up with Swiss cheese and ham inside a breaded chicken breast, it's pretty much untasteable. Alex, ever adventurous with regards to food, not only ate lots of chicken (pulling the ham and asparagus out to eat first of course), but more asparagus and parmesan sauce than I had. He's a good little piggy. All you parents who can't get your kids to eat veggies - hah! Neener neener! ;-)

It's always nice when a culinary experiment turns out well. Next test dish is Penne with Asparagus and Pistachios. Sound unusual, and ya gotta use the asparagus before it turns to compost in the fridge. Rotten asparagus is gross, I'm tellin' ya.

It was a recipe in Cuisine magazine. I love that thing - it's the source of half the recipes we're eating this week.

I bookmarked that! Looks like a lot of good stuff there!

Interesting, I've never heard of putting asparagus in Chicken Cordon Bleu. My folks would dig it. I'm not a fan of asparagus, myself, though I used to like it when I was a kid. I'm not sure what happened. :-)
