  1. A friend of mine did something similar for her daughter's bridal shower... she had the white bread without crusts, flattened, the pickled asparagus, and the cream cheese, she did everything except add the bacon and green onions, and she did not bake them, those things were gone within 5 minutes... and she made five trays!! It was the first time I had had pickled asparagus.... I wonder if you could use gluten free bread for this.......
  2. Good and easy. I didn't have any bacon so used deli meat with 2 pcs of asparagus on each slice on wheat bread. I can imagine bacon taking this over the top in taste, but taste was good my way I thought.


Ok guess which one is me. Miss two , the third guess is right. laughing my tush off. Retired, and happy about that. Moving to Mexico later this year for a complete and wonderful retirement.

Usually when I want something different I just turn to the net and/or ZAAR. Pet peeves? People who say they can cook and what they cook is BLAND. ekkkkkkkkks Ok, so as most of you know. Im a Man made woman. I am a Transsexual, and as Ive had surgury, im a complete woman. I have all the attributes of a lady. If you cant stand that, than im sorry for you, and I wish you Adieu.
