    Putting It All On The Table

    Asparagus and Smoked Salmon

    I adapted this recipe from the April 2017 issue of Better Homes and Gardens. This dish works for brunch or for a side with dinner. I think it would also be nice if you added some cooked, quartered potatoes to it. That would make a full meal for brunch. It’s easy to put together and … Read more
