Yes I am a foodie (quite surprising, a lot of people find that surprising). 8-)

Anyways, this is what I intend to cook tonight among other things. I cannot claim credit for this, I found it online some time back and now its stored on my Wiki at home and I don’t know who to give credit for it anymore.


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus spears, trimmed


  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Stir in the olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  3. Cook garlic in butter for a minute, but do not brown.
  4. Add asparagus, and cook for 10 minutes, turning asparagus to ensure even cooking.
