On TV – I’ve been re-watching Season 2 of Orange is the New Black in preparation for Season 3 which will be released on Netflix on June 12. Good news, Larry, Jason Biggs’ character will not be in this upcoming season, but bad news, neither will Pablo Schreiber’s Officer Mendez character. Other summer shows starting in June: The Astronaut Wives on June 18, Season 5 of Suits on June 24. Check out Esquire Magazine’s TV Shows Premiering Summer 2015 That You Should Watch.
In the Kitchen- Through Pinterest, I found this Roasted Asparagus recipe from She Wears Many Hats. The only switch I made to the recipe was grilling the asparagus on the outdoor grill inside of roasting in the oven. It was delicious! Here are pictures of my attempts of this recipe.
