My friend Kent Bailey is an excellent cook. I haven't seen him since high school, but with the magic of Facebook I get to see what he has for dinner many nights. This week he posted this recipe for Shrimp and Asparagus. I happened to have all the ingredients already here at the house because I love every ingredient in here. The only way I can think of to make it better would be to add bacon and guess what? I have some of that, too!!
I love bacon. Jus' sayin'.
