Two of my most favorite people in the whole world are my niece and nephew Audra & Wesley. Audra is just about 8 months and Wesley will be 2 next week and I am obsessed with them. I try and talk to Wes once a day on the phone and see them as much as I can, and of course I am constantly spoiling them as much as I can.
One of my favorite helpers
One of my favorite things to do for Wes is to cook for him. From the time he could start eating real food I would bring him almost everything I made him…and sometimes when he see’s me he will immediately ask for a cookie (remember I said I love to spoil him), so anytime we can get together with him I jump at the chance and not too long a go we had a family dinner at their house and Wesley was my helper.
Grilling Fun for everyone (even the littles)
On this particular night my brother and sis-in-law did most of the cooking and I was in charge of Wes and pictures so when it came time to take picture of the food Wesley was right there to help. My sis-in-law has done an amazing job of letting Wes eat a ton of veggies and he LOVES them so when the asparagus came off the grill he was grabbing for one immediately, but first I asked him if he could show me the asparagus and this is what I got…one of the sweetest pics in my world. He was so eager to help Chelle Chelle (that is what he calls me) and did a great job!!
After I got the picture he went in for the taste and after that I couldn’t stop him…even when I moved the platter to the counter he kept coming up and asking for more…he LOVED it!!
For the asparagus my brother just did a real simple seasoning and then cooked them to perfection on the grill, giving them a little bit of char and intensifying their flavor just enough to make them even more delicious!
Break out the grill and throw some asparagus on there to make a perfect side for dinner tonight!!
