Roasted Asparagus

ugh, looks so nasty but tasted so good! While they roasted a rich lush smell wafted throughout my house causing my daughter to rushed in and excitedly asked if we were having steak for dinner.  Upon seeing the blackened and wilted roasted asparagus she turned her head and declared, "yeech I am not eating that!".  "Just try it you will like taste like steak."  "I will take a small bit."  Which defined is a piece the size of the dot above an i.  In the end she grabbed the plate declared shear happiness and would not share with anyone else.  And yes oddly enough the roasted asparagus tasted like one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. Perhaps this occurred because we grow our asparagus.  It is a mystery to me and a repeat.
