More grilling - Asparagus

Just because you're camping doesn't mean you have to just eat hot dogs (although I love them).  You can add a touch of nutrition to your outdoor adventure.  You can also do this at home on the BBQ grill.

Ingredients
1 pound fresh asparagus spears, trimmed
1 tablespoon olive oil
Pat of butter
Salt and pepper to taste
Aluminum foil

Directions
Preheat grill for high heat.
Place asparagus on shiny side of foil.
Lightly coat the asparagus spears with olive oil.  Top with butter.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Fold edges over, making a loose envelope.
Grill over high heat for 10 to 12 minutes (my spears were thick, if you have thin spears-NOTE use less time), or to desired tenderness.

Stay hungry my friend!
