Happy Mother's Day!

I had a great Mother's Day. My husband made every meal today, and they were all wonderful. He did all of the grocery shopping for it, too. (By the way, when you and your husband both go grocery shopping but one of you doesn't want to talk about what you are getting, because the meals are a suprise, you could end up like us, with 3 dozen eggs, 9 lemons, 3 heads of romaine lettuce, a few loaves of bread, etc.) For dinner he grilled some delicious pork chops (photo above). He also made bacon-wrapped asparagus that was to die for-he did it without a recipe, too, so I'll be posting his method below. There was also a salad with a ton of fresh veggies, deviled eggs, and a warm loaf of french bread, with sparkling cranberry-apple cider.

For lunch, he made delicious sandwiches on onion rolls, with honey ham, muenster cheese (one of my favorite cheeses ever), lettuce and tomato. He also cut up a bunch of fresh fruit. It was so yummy.

Thin Asparagus Spears

Use as much asparagus as you want- I think my husband used 6-8 per bundle. Steam until almost crisp-tender. Meanwhile, cook bacon until almost crisp (if it is too crisp, you won't be able to wrap it around asparagus). Using 2 pieces of bacon per bundle, wrap it around the middle of aspargus. Secure with toothpicks. Heat bundles on an outdoor grill about 5 minutes or until bacon is crispy. Remove toothpicks for serving.

I am impressed. Does your husband give OTHER husbands lessons? I don't think my hubby would even know what to shop for!!
