  1. looks great! what do you think about the small oven air fryers. my toaster oven is horrible and I don’t like the big air fryers that sit on the counter. Thanks Diane and hope all is well!❤️

    • We originally bought an air fryer and I really loved it. Kept it in the basement with all my other gadgets so that tells you it was pretty easy to lift. However, the brand we bought had an issue with the drawer. It closed fine when it was cold and first starting to cook but once it was hot, the door warped and was awful to close in order for it to turn on again. I was gifted the Ninja Foodi from my parents and my favorite feature in it is the air fryer, however, it is very heavy and it’s hard to move so it stays on my counter. (It is still my favorite gadget) I give a thumbs up to any larger air fryer (mine is an 8 quart and holds a whole chicken).

    • Hahaha I have a LOVE for asparagus. I grow my own and have a large section in my garden. I rarely buy it at the store because I have so much in the spring freshly picked from the garden. For some reason I had a craving for it and bought it from the store. I thought why not in the air fryer. I will be posing some really “different” recipes this week.

  2. Yum, yum. I love asparagus and this sounds so easy to make. Asparagus is on sale this week too. I am going to give this a try for sure.
