Chicken Asparagus Roll-Ups
3 whole chicken breasts, split, skinned and boned (1 to 1 1/2 pounds)
With meat mallet or dull edge of French knife, pound chicken breasts to 1/8-inch thickness. On each chicken breast, place one slice of cheese with about 3 asparagus stalks.

__La Mansion del Rio Hotel's Bar Olives
La Mansion del Rio is an old hotel on the San Antonio River. You can adjust the amount of heat by using a scant__ 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper.
1 teaspoon dried granulated garlic
1/2 teaspoon cayenne or to taste
1/2 teaspoon finely ground black pepper
Olive oil as needed
Drain liquid from olives, rinse them in fresh water and drain again. Wash and dry the jar and put the olives back in. Add rosemary, garlic, cayenne and black pepper then fill the bottle with olive oil. Replace the lid, then shake the bottle to mix the ingredients. Allow the olives to marinate for about two days, shaking the jar periodically.
It's not necessary to refrigerate the olives if they are consumed within a few days. For extended storage, keep them in the refrigerator.
Have a wonderful week, and until next time, happy cooking.

I began cooking at the age of 9 with my father and have always loved trying new recipes. Beware: I am fond of onions and peppers! I am diabetic so I do try to cook more healthy dishes these days. My door is always open to trying and sharing new recipes. Let's see what we can cook up with this blog!
