Bake for about 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until asparagus is tender, prosciutto is crisp and puff pastry is golden brown. Serve immediately.

Note: Prosciutto is salty enough, so you don't need to season with salt.
You can brush the puff pastry with egg wash and sprinkle with garlic powder and parmesan cheese.

Liebster Blog Award nr. 2

This is unbelievable: another Liebster Blog award from Prathibha -

What can be better than one Liebster award??? the correct answer is 2 Liebster awards. Yes I got two in a week.
Actually this was the first award I got, but I didn't see it on Prathibha's blog, only after a few days.

So I have to nominate another 5 blogs. I will choose 5 bloggers with no Liebster blog awards. This is what I did yesterday when I got the first award.

'Liebster' means favourite or dearest in German. Rules for accepting the award:
- Thank the person who gave the award and link back to their blog.
- Copy and paste the award to your blog.
- Reveal the 5 blogs you have chosen to award and let them know by commenting on their blog.

Here are the 5 blogs I follow and recommend to everybody:

Liebster Blog Award

Yesterday I received a wonderful surprise from Stephanie
First of all I want to thank you for including my blog in your favorites.
This is my first nomination and award and it really made my day. Thank you so much.

Liebster is German and translates to the English word“dearest”or” favorite”.
 It’s meant for up-and-coming blogs with less than 200 followers.”

Here are the rules
•Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog.
•Link back to the blogger who presented the award to you.
•Copy and paste the blog award on your blog.
•Present the Liebster Blog Award to 5 blogs of 200 followers or less who you feel deserve
to be noticed. (Some say just 3 or more blogs of less than 200 followers each).
•Let them know they have been chosen by leaving a comment at their blog.
One of the responsibilities that goes with accepting the Liebster Blog Award is an amazingly difficult one, that of choosing five blogs to nominate for the Award, in turn.

After much head-scratching, I finally narrowed it down to five blogs to pass the honors on to. In no particular order:

Discovering in the Kitchen -

The Saucy Gourmet -

Una Semplice Passione -

Simple Cookery -

Mumsfilibaba -

The hardest part was to choose only 5!

Thank you for the award!
