pancetta-wrapped salmon with griddled asparagus and jersey royals

How can we still be jet-lagged? Despite coming home yesterday morning, and having an afternoon cat nap, Ana still manages to fall asleep for the second night running whilst doing the evening snuggle with Milo. And despite eating my own body weight in Canadian sweets at work, by two o'clock closing my eyes has become quite hazardous...

With an early night looming, more unpacking to do *and* a desperate desire to undo ten days worth of chicken wings, booze, sausages, salami and Timbits, we're back on the healthy stuff. Were we ever off it I wonder?

All in all tonight sees a much more successful skinning of the fillet, (there seems to be a weird extra place on salmon fillets where the flesh sticks to the skin more, like an extra area of fibre - anyway, I've worked that out now), and general crisping of pancetta etc etc.

Strange but true - despite being the asparagus season, I noticed Waitrose's asparagus' comes from Peru. Surely that's not right, particularly as the potatoes are also in season?

Massive Canada post to come
