FOOD INSPIRATION DURING THE TIME OF THE CORONAVIRUS
I love to start grilling at this time of year. This dish mixes together grilled meat and asparagus with an amazing marinade. If you don't eat red meat, you can substitute chicken or other grilled vegetables.
This takes about 35 minutes to prepare and serves 4 people. It tastes best if you let the dish sit at room temperature for 1/2 hour. If you don't have time, it's fine to serve it right away.
