Did you ever wake up from a dream and say "where in blue fuck did that come from?" I had one of those dreams early this morning. I dreamed I was at a country music concert (point: this would never happen because I hate country music), I don't know who the country singer was, he was male, and he was wearing black jeans and a black cowboy button down shirt, and a tan cowboy hat. He was playing the guitar and singing. I don't remember all the lyrics, but I do remember the part where he got down on one knee, strummin' his guitar and sang this verse to me. "I want to live with you in a state of constant fucking."
What psycho part of my subconscious came up with this song? Where do things like this come from. Its at times like this that I believe that our brains do not belong to us when we are asleep. Like the night I had a dream that I had sex with Jason Stackhouse from the the HBO Series True Blood (which, if you have not seen, get the DVD and catch your ass up. Its' so good)
[Small tangent here. The new season of True Blood starts on June 14th and I'm looking for a really kick ass vampire themed martini - you know something red and slightly thick. If you can think of anything please email me - it will make the season premiere that much better with the proper drink. Please note. I loathe tomato juice so no bloody mary's]
Ok. Question. What has been your most whacked out dream? The one where you woke up, shook your head and said. Jumpin Jesus on a pogo stick where did that come from?
Moving right along to the tasty portion of this blog. I made this recipe as a side dish for mother's day and boy o boy were they a hit. Here's what I did.
I took trimmed green asparagus and tossed them in a little olive oil lemon juice and chopped dill. I then roasted them in a 375 degree oven for about 10 minutes, tossing them halfway through.
I then took the white asparagus and trimmed the ends and peeled them. I then blanched them in boiling water for about 4 minutes, threw them in an ice bath and when cool, tossed them with olive oil, lemon juice and dill.
I took presliced smoked salmon and wrapped it around the cool asparagus spears alternating green and white. I finished with fresh dill on the top. Delicious.
Rating = So Damn Good. (and so super easy, and so pretty too. make them for your next get together)
