Balsamic Glazed Asparagus

Rather than posting a picture of the meal every time, I'm going to just leave you with the first picture. I just like to post the recipes separately so they are easier for me to find in the search function later! This is great asparagus--even high school students are loving this stuff. One girl went home and made it for her family because she liked it so much, so that's definitely saying something about this recipe! It is very simple to put together. We got the idea from when we made soy glazed sauteed green beans in class and they all loved those. We needed a veggie side for our entree so we experimented a bit and wound up with this! I am so proud of them for getting creative and not just following recipes all the time--I feel like that means they're learning more.
