Asparagus Bruschetta Crostinis with Mustard Lemon Goat Cheese
There are many things in life that I question. Some are easy to answer and some keep me up at night. Should I bring a jacket? Always. Should I finish my dinner even though I’m full? Probably not. Will I do it anyways? Almost always. Most of the questions I ask myself are like this. Things that I know what I should say, and I know what I want to say. The two are rarely the same. Should I go to the gym? YES! Do I want to… not particularly. A good portion of the time, the question involves how many glasses of wine I should drink and I have been pretty good on that one. But if I said yes to the gym question I can have an extra right?
The questions that really make me think are ones that I don’t often like to think about. Most of these involve the future and the question, how can I make more money?! I think everyone can relate to this one. I love having dreams but mine are getting loftier by the day. After spending a few days in Nashville for work, I realized how much it costs to travel. Luckily it was for work and I could expense things, but when will I be able to afford a real vacation? Being 25 now I realize I still have some time to make big bucks and not stress about going out to dinner, but being a millennial… I want it now! When I start to ask myself these questions about the future, I find myself reminding myself how lucky I am right now. When I start to stress even for a minute, I remember that goat cheese was put on this earth for a reason.
That reason? Well isn’t it obvious? To mix with lemon zest & whole grain mustard, spread on a crostini and top with asparagus!
Roast some asparagus. Then place your goat cheese in a bowl with mustard and lemon zest.
Mix until combined!
Toast up those crostini!
Spread on that delicious goat cheese.
Top with asparagus and enjoy!!
