Animal Bloggers, The Confederation Series,

You know, I wonder about me and about some of us bloggers some times. I love to read the blogs by Gary Pennick's son's dog, Penny and I also love to read those from Carlton the cat owned by Patricia Keenor in England (come to think of it, both those animals are in the UK) and I even write comments directed to the purported bloggers, Penny and Carlton. Who's daftest, the blogger or the commenter?

Short blog, I am engrossed in The Confederation Series by Tanya Huff. I am presently on the last book although she has started another series with the same characters. However, I will have to start on some of her other series next. I am really enjoying her writing.

My bowling wasn't too bad but as a team we sucked.

This recipe will appeal to some and not others. I cannot imagine having asparagus that is crispy and crunchy. I like the tastes involved though so I will have to find a different way of doing it.

Asiago, Bacon, and Garlic Roasted Asparagus

1.5 lb asparagus
2 Tbs olive oil
salt and pepper
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup grated Asiago cheese
4 bacon slices, cooked, drained of fat, chopped

1. Preheat oven to 425° F. Trim asparagus ends.

2. Place asparagus in a 2.5 quart casserole dish, drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, season with salt and pepper, mix everything well. Mix in the minced garlic.

3. Roast, uncovered, at 425°F for 10 minutes.

4. Remove from the oven.

5. Sprinkle half of grated Asiago cheese all over asparagus, then add chopped cooked bacon, then top with the remaining half of grated Asiago cheese. Roast for 10 more minutes, uncovered at 425°F. Asparagus should be crispy and crunchy.

Servings: 4

  1. I think almost everything is better with bacon. Courtney - Maui Jungalow

  2. I've done asparagus in the oven, dipped in egg & breadcrumbs/parm cheese, and it's quite tasty!

    1. Me too JoJo, you may have got the recipe here, but it is not cooked as long as the recipe above, 20 minutes in total is one heck of a lot.

  3. I have spoken to the pussy cat before but I don't know the doggie which of course means...I will speak dog as well. I do not hang my head in shame either:)

    1. I think we are all nuts Birgit. I speak to both.

  4. Penny is a rock star and I know it's his son's dog, but that little Penny really wuvs her grandpa Gary
