Because why not?

Pinned It, Nailed It!

6 March 2014
Pinterest has a wondeful ability to make me hungry, I like to pin pictures of amazing dishes and then never make them because I'm not actually a good cook, I have a few recipes that are fantastic but none of them are original, they have all been passed down to me. If I was required to make something from scratch with stuff in the pantry and no help from a recipe we'd all be fucked.

When I saw this posted on Pinterest I though 'how hard can it be!?!' Other thoughts I had were 'Asparagus and bacon are good so they must be amazing together' and 'I'm gonna be the next Martha Stewart'.

Well it turns out that it wasn't so easy, Australian bacon isn't thin enough for things like this and I was too derp to make this connection before making my produce purchases.

Here you can see how I struggled with the bacon, I'm a rind lover so left it on but I did attempt to wrap a piece after removing the rind to see if it would hold better. It didn't. I had one piece of bacon that was cut extremely thinly at one end and it stuck to the asparagus so well. After stabbing myself several times with the tooth picks and dropping several pieces of bacon (much to the dogs joy) I decided that if this was ever to be attempted again I would have to request some custom sliced bacon rashers.

Here are all my little pig wrapped, mini trees ready for the oven. The sauce that the recipe calls for is delicious and easy to make, something I would make again for other meat basting goodness.

And here is my burnt attempt! I'm really impressed that I managed to fuck this up so Royally, it shouldn't be difficult but this showcases my 'spaz in the kitchen' side so well. I did taste a piece before I threw them away. Bacon and Asparagus aren't friends in case you were wondering and the burnt end was the best bit.

    1. I tried to use the oven last night to make home made chips (something I can do well) and discovered our oven has stopped working!!! I think it's punishing me for the mega fails I often create.
