Sunday Brunch

After working a very long day on Saturday and then playing a rough hockey game that night, I treated myself to a tasty mid-morning-afternoon Brunch.

I grabbed a few ingredients out from the fridge, prepped my cast iron, and set the oven ablaze. I love roasted asparagus, a close second to marking them up on the grill. Like most people on the planet, I love bacon too. And I also love the simplicity yet techinical aspect of a good, perfectly-cooked fried egg. With a few dashes and sprinkles of salt, pepper, and parsley, mixed with olive oil, I shoved the Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus into the mouth of the oven.

Ten minutes later, an adult beverage consumed, I had a beautiful combination of salty, crunchy, and creamy.

Woah Mama! This was a true tasty endeavor. The bacon fat cooked down into the stalky asparagus flavoring them to pornographic levels. And I really couldn't contain myself after splitting open the egg yolk and having it ooze all over the plate. It provided a warm goo that coated the stalks.

Maybe I ate too many asparagus. That thought will instantly slap me in the face later when I visit the bathroom for a good ole number one. But it was worth it.

It is a simple dish that gave me much excitement. Is there any more?
