Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

Something very eye pleasing about the candy cane-like stripes of the bacon wrapped around the asparagus. Now to go right under the broiler of my toaster oven. My counter top toaster oven often doubles as my salamander oven for quick and easy grilling while using a cast iron pan. Works well and saves energy, not having to heat up a whole oven.

Note: only about 1/4 of the asparagus are wrapped, there is a layer of them below which will catch the flavour and fat drippings from the layer above

For an energetic time, make it an affogato time!

One of my favorite coffee treats. (Line borrowed from Lost in Translation… I need to watch it again. “For relaxing time…make it a Santori time”) One scoop of vanilla gelato and pour a shot or two of freshly brewed espresso over top of it, enjoy it with a small spoon.
