This recipe presents me with the same frustration I\'ve had many times before with OGP recipes, namely discrepancies among ingredients listed, ingredients mentioned in the directions that do not appear in the ingredients list, and an ingredient that appears in the ingredient list but not in the instructions.

In this case, red onion is called for in the instructions, but is not mentioned in the ingredients list; asparagus is listed in the ingredients, but the instructions do not mention it at all.

Please, folks: EDIT recipes BEFORE publishing them! I expend a lot of time going through every recipe in the newsletter that I find inviting to assure consistency between ingredients and instructions. This has been a chronic problem with your recipes, and I strongly urge you to correct it -- every time I have to go through this editing process (which should occur on your end), I reconsider if I want to continue with your newsletter or recommend it to others.
