Gracie was not with us this Christmas
Just got home from delivering Little Man and his Momma and Daddy to DFW. The holiday is officially over around here. We had lots of fun; ate lots of food; and enjoyed lots of love. Life is good.
Audra, did the beautiful topper for the chocolate torte. Dana, the bacon wrapped asparagus couldn't be easier. Snap the tough ends off the asparagus. Wash and blot dry. Drizzle with olive oil; sprinkle with garlic salt; wrap bundles with bacon. Roast at 425 degrees until done (you can roast at whatever temp you are cooking other items at the same time).
Most of the time, I just do asparagus drizzled with the olive oil, no bacon. I sometimes like it roasted for about 10 minutes so it is tender-crisp; sometimes, I like it roasted until it is crispy on the tips, almost like an asparagus chip. With the bacon, I roast until the bacon looks done.
Oh, how we enjoyed breakfast-sharing with the Little Man. He shared clementines and blueberries, his favorites, with Pop Pop while Pop Pop fed him pancakes with syrup. A good exchange and so sweet to watch. I couldn't have asked for more this Christmas. Life was very, very good.
