Did you know??
Although using avocados and bananas are all the buzz now to get soft and shiny hair, all it will get you is a messy kitchen and bathroom. These products are great to help your hair for one day, but the proteins in them are way too big for your hair to absorb. And unless you are going to use them each day (yikes!), then you should head to a beauty supply store and check out some Vegan products that use "hydrolyzed" proteins - proteins from avocados and bananas that actually are small enough to help your hair.

Asparagus with Peanut Sauce

So if anyone has noticed, we like asparagus.  Let me rephrase that, I like asparagus.  After refusing to eat the pee-changer for the first two decades of my life, I'm making up for lost time.  We should really consider making a page dedicated to asparagus *makes mental note*.  Since asparagus was on sale, we bought quite a bit of it this past weekend, which translates into more asparagus experiments in the kitchen.  I originally came up with this when looking at a walnut sauce recipe, and continued to adjust it until this came to fruition.  You can either eat it as pictured above, or cut the asparagus into 1-2 inch pieces.  Speaking of all the different types of asparagus recipes, do you have a favorite?

1 pound asparagus, thick ends removed, cut into 1 ½-inch pieces
½ cup peanuts, dry-roasted
¼ cup soy sauce
1/1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder

Bring a large skill filled with 1 inch of water to a boil.  Add asparagus and cook 2-4 minutes, or until just softened. 

Remove, rinse with cold water, and drain.  Set aside.

While bringing the water to a boil, add all other ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth.

Drizzle sauce over the asparagus and enjoy!
