Just dragonflies/Flying to the side/No one gets hurt/You're doing nothing wrong - Bacon-wrapped cod and peanut noodles

It was a splendidly gorgeous day today in St. Louis. The sun was shining, a gentle breeze blew and it was just north of 80F. Pretty much perfect as far as weather goes.

Discussion came up, on Facebook, of peanut noodles*. As I've been having peanut butter cravings lately, they seemed like an excellent idea. Alongside some bacon-wrapped cod cooked on the grill in the waning minutes of daylight, we had dinner. Sadly, the cod looks better than it tasted. I spread the filets with sweet chili sauce, rolled them around asparagus, then wrapped it up in bacon. You would have thought there'd be more flavor, but it was a little bland; not terrible, but not great. Lesson learned!

*Peanut butter, seasoned rice vinegar, chili sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil, hot water. Mix, pour over cooked, rinsed noodles along with sliced green onions.
