Asparagus with Feta Yogurt Mint Dressing


Today, I decided to have a mother-daughter shopping and lunch date after I picked up my 4-year old daughter from school. Sometimes she's in a grumpy mood and just demands to go back home immediately (sigh) while there are moments when she's in a hyper talkative mood, speaking incessantly for hours. You just need a good pair of earplugs if you can't make her stop and just keep on nodding your head on the right points making sure that your timing is right because she might notice that you are not following her and you will be in big trouble. She caught me a few times and believe me, an angry sensitive 4-year old girl is hard to pacify.


Passing by the fruit and vegetable section of the supermarket with her, we played a game of recognizing them. For a kid her age, I was quite happy about how much she knows. Because even if she is a big time picky eater, I still persist in serving her different kinds of vegetables. Her older brother changed his picky eating ways so I am not losing any hope in her. I always cook asparagus so she recognized them immediately even if she doesn't eat them. Who knows, maybe one day she will pick up in eating them too aside from just knowing what they are. 

When I created this Asparagus with Feta Yogurt Mint Dressing recipe, I immediately loved it. When I have buy fresh asparagus, I almost always cook them on the griddle or the barbecue grill if we have the fire on. I think that it's the best way to take out their flavors. To give them an interesting edge, I dressed them with a mixture of feta cheese and yogurt. You can find this recipe at Skinny Ms., a site where I create healthy recipes.
