Now that we are head first into summer I am always trying to think of new reasons for us to barbecue and spend time outdoors. Our summer season is pretty short so we try to soak up every day of it. This Bacon Wrapped Asparagus Recipe is the perfect excuse to fire up the barbecue and head outside.
Earlier in the week, we headed to Seattle to see my parents and do some fun shopping at Sam's Club. They were having their Dare to Compare tire sale and we took full advantage of it. The Jeep tires have been getting a bit too loud and it was time to change them out. We found a killer deal on tires online from Sam's Club and were able to order them and have them ready when we reached the store.
It took a couple of hours to get the tires done so we spent this time wandering through the store finding way too many things that we loved. I knew I wanted to stock up on barbecue essentials and a few other things but I have to admit we stocked up on a lot of things! From new Margaritaville shoes for John to delicious Member's Mark wine and mini cheesecakes.
I also managed to fall in LOVE with a gorgeous Member's Mark Fremont 4 piece outdoor furniture set that we relaxed in for a while. If only the Jeep was big enough to handle a giant outdoor furniture set. This is truly the only reason it didn't come home with us. But now I am stalking it on Sam's Club to see if I can get it shipped to the house. It is sooooooo pretty and was super comfy! We spent about an hour relaxing in the chairs and on the couch and they were fantastic.
Ok, back to the barbecue essentials and this delicious Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus Recipe. As we were wandering around the store we were talking about our favorite summer barbecue recipes that we haven't made yet this year. John was craving steak, asparagus, and Caprese salad. As we wandered around the store we found a ton of Member's Mark products that were perfect for barbecuing. If I am being honest we found a ton of Member's Mark products that we just want in our lives. LOL! Did you know that Sam's Club has expanded their Members Mark product line to now having more than 2,000 products in it!
Our cart was overflowing with goodness! This doesn't even count the tires and my giant wish list of products that I need to get on our next visit.
Once we were home we fired up the grill and made John's steaks he was so excited about, the Bacon wrapped asparagus and I made up super delicious Caprese salad bites that I can't wait to share with you soon.
We truly had a barbecue feast!
