Because I'm a dork & I try to combine tasks, even when they're pleasant ones, and because I go into withdrawal if I don't post about food, here is my photo for Angie's Wordful Wednesdays. These are Tristan's party invitations for his birthday coming up later this month. Inside are regular store bought invites so to doctor them up & get a little crafty, I put some Ben 10 color inspired M&M's in a little candy bag, secured with ribbon, & then tied through a hole in the top corner of the envelope. Of course, these don't work for the invites I had to mail but I am sure the kids at Tristan's school liked the surprise in their cubbies.
Again, I am not THAT crafty, don't do scrapbooking & all but I do like to kick things up a notch sometimes. 2 years ago I made Tristan's invites from scratch which I will post soon. It was different of me to do that but I enjoyed it & was proud of them. Give them a reason to come to the party, ya know, aside from being Tristan's friend. Hah. Click on photo to enlarge.
And in the middle is my steamed asparagus w/ parmesan that I make often. Thank God for this because it's what got Terry to stop eating it from the can. For a long time I told him I can get it just asmushy
soft, which is what he likes. Finally, when I made it & he approved I was able to stop buying it from the can.
Place asparagus in steamer basket. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder. Steam for 15 minutes on medium heat. Sprinkle parmesan cheese & let steam for 5 more minutes until parmesan cheese melts.
