Date and Coconut Asparagus

Sometimes it takes more than one person to get the creative juices following.

Luckily, I have a very creative friend who helped me come up with this appetizer. Considering my house was supplied with the bare minimum in food, I was very proud and happy that this recipe turned out so great!
