Cookography -- Asparagus Stocks

Bacon! I swear you could wrap it around dog turds and they would taste good. I'm not going to try it, but I bet it would. Instead, I wrapped bacon around very tiny, skinny asparagus stalks and then roasted it all in the over for about 10 minutes.

So pretty from above
I used the pre-cooked bacon to cut down on the roasting time. Otherwise the asparagus would have probably burned before the bacon was cooked.

Martini glasses…not just for martinis anymore!
I then whipped up a simple Dijon Mustard and Peppercorn Ranch dipping sauce and placed it in a martini glass in the center of the platter. Who cares if they taste like crap (which they did not!) as long as they look good, I'm happy.

    Just a public thank you for a wonderful weekend of parties. Kinda glad Saturday was as laid back as it was. I can't wait until Scott and I turn 100!
