    Oh Jenna, love your St. Patrick’s Day decor and I see spring has sprung at your house. I am anxious to pull things out too! So many delicious recipes here. I wanted to try your Asparagus Fries but I changed the recipe a little. I try not to eat eggs when I can so I sprayed the asparagus with XVOL spray and added the bread crumbs and seasoning. It was delicious and made a great side dish. Look forward to reading your TTT post on the first……..
