Prosciutto-Wrapped Grilled Asparagus 

Growing up, my brothers said I was “picky” when it came to food. I did not like fresh sliced tomatoes, asparagus or eggs that weren’t scrambled. I pretty much ate everything else. Apparently, this made me a “picky” eater. I have over the years developed a love for fresh sliced tomatoes, but have yet to conquer the runny egg (although I’ve been tempted recently by those burgers topped with egg).

It was about 15 years ago, when my husband and I were staying at a bed and breakfast in Maine, that I was served a corn and asparagus frittata. I heard “asparagus” and was instantly disappointed. But I didn’t want to be rude and the dish looked really appetizing so I tried it.
