Celebrating Sixty (60??)

So most of the day I kept saying to Rex:  "I kind of want to call in sick today."  His persuasive argument?  "You wouldn't have any fun without me".  OK  he is so right.

Fast forward to :  Us walking into the pit to report for work.  Rex turning to me and saying: "Want to get on the EO (early out) list?  After reflecting for a nanosecond: "sure".  So us lazy asses left work about 10 minutes after punching in.  "Lazy asses" being the key words in that sentence.

The shift boss asked what we were going to do and I said maybe go out to eat...

But, being true to our natures, we decided to go to the grocery store and EAT IN. 

First up....prosciutto wrapped asparagus.

Love, love both of these ingredients!!

After oiling the asparagus, it is wrapped in prosciutto and roasted in an 350 degree oven for about 17 minutes.

 Doesn't that look like the perfect appetizer? 

 Anyone that knows Rex, knows what bullshit this is: he would not touch aspargus with a 10 foot pole.
But I LOVED it!! - - And his daughter, Amy, loved it when she was here.

If you liked the first course, check in tomorrow for the second course.  A hint:  scallops and puff pastry.  I am loving my birthday!!
