Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus

asparagusWhat could taste better than putting bacon and asparagus together as a meal or side dish, or Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus.   This is one of my new favorite meal and the girls had fun wrapping the bacon around the asparagus.  We even made this dish a day ahead. The bacon wrapped asparagus soaked up the sauce in the pan overnight and it turned out super yummy!
