French Fridays with Dorie: Bacon and Eggs and Asparagus Salad

Bacon and Eggs and Asparagus Salad

No posts since February, and now two in one day? Sure, both are a day late, but do we really need to talk about that?  I made this week's selection for French Fridays with Dorie, an asparagus salad with bacon and eggs, on Thursday and hoped to have the post up yesterday, but it didn't quite happen.  On the positive side, this recipe is not just idling on my camera somewhere, like so many previous FFwD recipes that I never quite managed to post (hello beef daube, chocolate mousse cake, orange almond tart, and Basque tortilla).

The Cake Slice: Orange-Almond-Caramel Upside-Down Cake

Orange-Almond-Caramel Upside-Down Cake

I have been seriously remiss in my blogging lately. First, I started a new job that seemed to occupy all of my time, then in February and March I found myself increasingly exhausted with very little motivation to cook. Well, I found out that the reason i was so tired is because I am pregnant! I am four months along now and finally getting the energy to do more cooking, though it is still harder to find things that I really want to eat (besides bagels with melted cheese, yum!).
