April 30th & Hot Bacon Asparagus Salad

April 30, 2011

April 30th – the 120th day of the year, only 245 days remaining in 2011!
April is gone, May is coming.
The last day of April – already! My goodness wasn’t it just Christmas? I feel as though my days are set on fast forward.
Starting in May, I will Post Monday through Friday, using Saturday as a day for folks to catch up on what they missed during the week.
Something to look forward to in May is a give-away contest for my 100th Post. Details to come.

    I know you meant “use bacon without nitrites” but others may not know.
