We did not have any barbeque competitions this weekend but Ms. Goofy wanted to clear the plugs in the Racing Honda. We fired up the Racing Honda and sped to the San Joaquin Asparagus Festival. This is a yearly pilgrimage that we look forward to. This year we not only experienced some of the best deep fried asparagus ever but found some new bacon themed products. Will I ever give up? Not likely.
There was a lot of asparagus themed food products that we did not try such as asparagus ice cream and asparagus margaritas. Maybe next time. What we did find was some of the best deep fried asparagus on the planet. Ms. Goofy especially liked it because of the very generous sprinkling of parmessan cheese to make this even more decadent. I tried to keep my bacon blinders on but I did fine bacon fudge and a spicy bacon caramel from Oso Pepper Company. (More on the caramels on a later date.). The fudge was rich and had most excellent little bacon bits throughout.
