One thought on “Orange Glazed Asparagus

  1. No matter how my mom makes them, we both agree that we’re not going to experiment with asparagus any more (my dad eats anything so he obviously said it was ok). I can’t describe why the flavour of the asparagus turns me off, but the texture of the vegetable is okay. Just a personal preference I guess.
