Asparagus Bacon Rolls

Hello October!!!
Suddenly I'm in such a good mood today, even though I'm actually at work on a Saturday morning! Like really EXCITED!!! Nah... Don't worry, I'm not high on drugs or anything like that. I think it's just because I had a very good night sleep... Oh and! Congratulations to Xiao Ting!!! Proposal is done there and I can't wait to be your bridesmaid!!! :D
So back to my blog. I realised I actually have quite a lot of stuff to blog about but work is kinda keeping me away from blogging but that's good actually, I prefer this to having nothing to blog about when I'm actually freaking free!

So... I'm gonna rewind back to Raya time when I was back at home and I made my family nice food to eat... I'm loving the library at work!!!
I've always wanted to make these Asparagus Bacon Rolls, especially ever since I recently have this interest to learn to make fancy finger food. I actually saw this recipe in a recipe book I got from the library at work. So here's how to make these cute, presentable and super delicious Asparagus Bacon Rolls...
1) Wrap the bacon onto each of the asparagus (many thanks to Mamo who has more patience than me slicing off the lower (and older) part of the asparagus). 2) Brush olive oil all over them.3) Sprinkle enough coarse black pepper and salt over them to taste.4) On a grill pan or a frying pan, heat up some olive oil and put all the asparagus bacon rolls and grill them till they are all cooked and that's it! Well obviously there were a little glitch when the bacon didn't seems to stick onto the asparagus. I mean, according to the recipe book, it doesn't require any extra stuff to make them stick onto the asparagus! But well, I still managed to sort of re-wrap them properly before serving them with some Aglio Olio! The Aglio Olio that I made this time around was the most successful one so far actually, just that my family don't seems to be very used to this kinda spaghetti... :( Good thing was, they definitely love the Asparagus Bacon Rolls! They were almost perfect! The bacon were nicely cooked and crispy and the asparagus wasn't overcooked and dry at all! Yummey~~~!!! I simply love this picture of my dish! Doesn't it looks dangerously yummy???
Well you might want to figure out how to make the bacon and asparagus stick together before trying this at home! But remember, remember to tell me how you do that okay? :p
