Asian-Inspired Asparagus Recipe

This is my absolutely favorite way to eat asparagus. My friend Pamela taught me how to make this in high school, and I have been making it ever since. This makes a great side dish with practically anything: salmon, pork chops, steak, or even shrimp. It's SO EASY, enjoy!

Asian-Inspired Asparagus
1 bunch asparagus
1 teaspoon diced garlic
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 c soy sauce, plus more to taste
1. Cut off the tough ends of the asparagus spears, and cut the remaining tender part into 1-2 inch sections with the ends at a 45-degree angle.
2. Heat olive oil in pan and saute garlic until slightly golden
3. Add asparagus and cover pan, stirring occasionally, until asparagus is tender. (approx. 5 mins)
4. Mix sugar into soy sauce, and add mixture to pan. Toss until asparagus is coated.
5. Remove from heat and enjoy!

that looks delish!! you can't go wrong with garlic and soy sauce!

my curtain is a blend of cotton and polyester* i'm on a budget so i just decided to use what i had lying around the house instead of buying new curtains! i just added a black trim to go along with the theme of the bathroom.

i'm really enjoying the grey walls. its a very calming and cool color. If you are afraid that it might be too dreary, just make sure your room has a lot of lighting! hope that helps!
