Oven Roasted Asparagus

We eat a descent bit of asparagus in our house, this is a simple and quick way to fix it that we both enjoy. I originally learned this method from the Pioneer Woman but I know a lot of people fix it this way.

1 Bunch of Asparagus
4 tbsp Olive Oil
Salt to taste
Fresh Ground Pepper to taste

Heat to 425. Wash the Asparagus and cut the bottom off of it. Dry off the asparagus. Place the asparagus in a single layer. Drizzle with olive oil then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for 10 minutes.

Salmon with Lemon and Dill

We love Salmon at our house! This is a very basic recipe that I saw at Kacey's Kitchen but it is also exactly how my mom use to fix it when I was growing up.

4 Salmon Filets
2 Lemons
Fresh Dill

Heat oven to 250. Season the salmon with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with fresh chopped dill. Finely slice the lemons and layer on top of the salmon. Place in a baking dish or on a cookie sheet covered with foil and sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 30 minutes.

Chicken Bacon Sandwich aka Marlboro Man's Second Favorite Sandwich

Oh my, seeing this picture again is making me want this sandwich right now! This is a fantastic Pioneer Woman Recipe! So easy and yummy!

4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
Lemon Pepper Seasoning
8 Strips of Bacon
Cheese Slices (Cheddar, American, Colby Jack, whatever you like)
Rolls (we like to use Onion Rolls)

Pound the chicken breast out till it is a uniform thickness, you don't want to make it to thin. Season all chicken breast with lemon pepper on both sides. Fry bacon in frying pan, remove when done. Reserve 1 tablespoon of bacon grease. Add Chicken and bacon grease back to frying pan. Cook chicken breasts for 4 minutes on each side. Place 2 slices of bacon on top of each chicken breast, top with cheese and let it melt. Meanwhile toast the buns lightly in the oven. Place chicken breast on top and serve.
