    This is pretty great. The only thing that bothers me is the crease in the table cloth along the right side. Scooting the plate over a few inches probably would have made this go away. The crease stands out to me only because everything else is so perfect!

    I make steamed asparagus all the time. Most of the time I serve it plain because I don’t want to get into making Hollondaise sauce. I never thought to use parmesan cheese. Thanks for the tip!
