Gloom ~ Tap Rock ~ Roasted Asparagus Parmesan Sandwich ~ Baked Tater Tots


Good 37ยบ foggy icky morning. More rain possibly. Drat! Can't mow.


Here's a picture from the camera down by the river in Grants Pass...


 
Going back to the baseball photo of "Hu is on first"... here is the original Abbot and Costello doing that gig...

 

Yesterday was brunch at Tap Rock. Rainy day....



Our local TV station, KOBI, has weekly deals. I got 'all you can eat buffet' tickets for Tap Rock for half price, so met Brian, Jen, Tucker, and Sami there. Tucker only likes the chocolate chip pancakes so just 4 of us had the buffet...
Good thing he's an active kid... there are a week's worth of calories in this!!


Sami with her waffle & whipped cream and fruit...

... and I had scrambled eggs (super creamy), fruit (pineapple & cantelope), a cheese blintz, spicy fish, apple sausage, and a taste of the potato salad.... OMGOOOOOOD!!!!!!

Mr. Goose was sitting outside on the railing...
That is Caveman Bridge in the background... crossing the Rogue River.

How about an Roasted Asparagus/Parmesan Sandwich?

 
Now this sounds really good, as I LOVE asparagus...

Top 4 slices of whole-grain artisan bread with grated parmesan cheese, place on rimmed baking sheet. Arrange asparagus around bread, brush with olive oil and a touch of balsamic vinegar. Broil 1-2 minutes until cheese is melted and bread is slightly toasted. Remove bread. Continue to broil another 1-2 minutes until asparagus is crisp tender.

Now this is up to you.. I don't care for tarragon so I'd use the Best Foods Balsamic Mayonnaise and green onion ... probably chopped fresh parsley or cilantro... Combine 2 T mayo with 3/4 T. chopped fresh tarragon and 1/2 T. sliced green onion. Spread over the un-toasted sides of the bread slices. Top with asparagus, sprinkle with coarse sea salt and pepper. Top with bread slice, parmesan side up. Makes 2 sandwiches.

All I know. Happy Monday. Last day of March. Nuff said. Ciao.
