Asparagus with Lemon Sauce

I love, love asparagus, and my Honey really does not. But when I prepare this recipe he does! It is light and gives a nice bright flavor to the asparagus without overbearing it. I hope you enjoy it.
Asparagus With Lemon Sauce
1 pound of asparagus- trimmed & washed
1 stick of butter
1 lemon
1/4 cup of white balsamic vinegar
Salt & pepper to taste
Blanch the asparagus and set aside.
Melt the butter in a small pot on medium heat. Grate the lemon into the melted butter then roll the lemon on the counter to get it soft and cut in half and squeeze the juice into the melted butter. Next add the balsamic vinegar and cook until slightly bubbling. Add salt & pepper to taste. Keep warm until ready to serve.
Tomorrow- Citrus Chocolate Mousse Cups
