Earlier this week I promised you all an amazing asparagus recipe, and here it is. We actually made this a little while ago to bring to a family dinner and I haven’t gotten around to posting this until now. Hey, life’s been busy – work is busy, and weekends are busy with house hunting and family things. Aldo’s niece is having a science themed birthday party, and guess who are the scientists in the family? Aldo and I. So we’ve been practicing making slime and elephant toothpaste and getting all the supplies ready. It’s going to be a fun party and I am excited that his niece asked for a science party instead of a princess party. Obviously a 6 year old girl’s birthday party choice is no indication of whether or not she will go into a STEM career, but making slime is more fun than singing the song from Frozen over and over, so we’ll take it. 🙂
(Side note: we get to attend the kids birthday party AND the family birthday party on Saturday, so we get to eat cake twice in one day. Win!!)
But back to this asparagus! It’s a great side dish and it is very easy to make. The crispy topping takes the dish to that special level that makes people ‘ooh‘ and ‘ahh‘ over a dish, so it is perfect for dinner parties or a special dinner at home. And of course, crispy bits of bacon in the topping are the best part. Because sure, asparagus is good, but bacon is better. Everyone knows that.
So give this great side dish a try. I promise you won’t regret it.
