This last couple days in Indiana has been Heaven weather wise. Last summer I made the choice to start commuting by back. Today as I drove home and thought about returning to town my gut kicked in: ride your bike. Boom an hour later I had my helmet on, back strapped on, music rocking, a smile on my face, and I raced (well not really it’s been a few months) up the hills of 63 to meet my family and my beloved twin nephews. Seven miles in and seven miles back, I would do over and over again for those babies. Yes my ass and thighs will be crying tomorrow and Tuesday, but watching super hero movies, dancing and singing to Queen, smothering them with kisses takes my afternoon over the top. The last hill as I peddle faster to the Mariah playing on the radio (Make it Happen), I decide I am going to make something happen in the kitchen for dinner. Lately I have been eating asparagus wrapped in various meats (salmon and beef). I also have bacon brain (self-diagnosed myself with the condition), probably because the midwest has decided to be awesome and Terre Haute is hosting a baconfest this month. Is it any wonder than that I had to wrap bacon around asparagus? Warning: I may post bacon recipes all week leading up to this pork celebration. So yummy post 14 mile ride.

Let’s Make it Happen: Heat the over to 350. Wrap a strip of bacon around asparagus. Layer on a tray. Bake for 45 minutes. Let it cool a little. Enjoy! So easy, but absolutely delicious.
