Asparagus and Portabello Mushrooms in Garlic Mustard Sauce

I have decided to participate in the Eating the Alphabet Challenge.  This challenge is organized and coordinated by Brenda at Meal Planning Magic.  What a great idea!  This is where on the 15th of each month I will publish vegetable recipes and share them at the link party with other bloggers.  If you are interested in joining us you can find out more here.

This first challenge was the letters A and B.  I assigned my oldest daughter the A because I like several “B” vegetables.  She finally turned in her homework.  She made an interesting mushroom and asparagus side to go along with what sounded like some really good steaks (balance in everything).

Asparagus and Mushrooms

Check out the link party below (must be registered to enter) and don’t forget to check out the Eating the Alphabet Pinterest board. There you can keep track of all the recipes that are added month-to-month but also find new recipes from last year too. What’s your favorite fruit, vegetable, grain or legume that starts with the letter A or B?
