Hope everyone had a great New Year! 

Definitely glad to be back working on the blog again after a small break that was much-needed and I apologize for the lack of recipes in that time!  Just some life updates, if you follow me on Instagram then you know I’m officially pregnant with our first child and it is literally the most exciting thing ever!  I’m currently 22 weeks as of today and couldn’t be happier to be at the halfway point haha.  It has been such an incredible experience with so many new things happening each month.  It really has been a pretty easy pregnancy this far so I feel truly blessed, but I’ll be sure to update you once I hit the third trimester to see if that changes haha!

So since finding out I was pregnant, I’ve really made sure to up my veggie intake, not only because veggies are of course super important for the growth and development of the baby, but I’ve had SO many aversions to all things chicken and meat that I’ve practically become a vegetarian!  Literally.  I’ve really tried to get creative with my veggie dishes so that I’m not eating the same thing day in and day out which is why I LOVE this simple asparagus recipe!  You only need a few simple ingredients and about 20 minutes in the kitchen to throw this delicious side dish together and the mustard dill sauce is super flavorful!

You simply just trim your asparagus, arrange them in a baking dish and pour over a mixture of chicken (or veggie) broth, Dijon mustard and a little fresh lemon juice.  Once your asparagus is done baking, just season with salt and pepper and top with fresh dill!  That’s it!  My hubby likes to top his with Parmesan cheese and that tastes delicious too!
