Bacon Holiday


I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend and feels a little more relaxed after a long weekend! Thank you M, you know who you are, for the invite to the picnic. The mac-n-cheese was very tasty and I had a great time! Definitely worth the sunburn! (Switching purses can be a dangerous thing when you forget to transfer sunscreen! Opps!)

There was a lot of talk of food and food trucks. M mentioned she would like to have a mac-n-cheese truck which got me to thinking about a bacon themed truck. Mmm….bacon-y heaven…. How fun would it be to make up the menu? My process of thought was directed elsewhere until yesterday when I came across the following post from one of my much loved blogs, Handjobs For the Home about bacon popcorn. This blog is full of great recipes all from the male perspective. Check it out! I got to wondering how many bacon recipes I could think up in five minutes. Apparently I can come up with 14 recipes, some of which are basic no-brainers like the BLT and AJ’s bacon popcorn with a twist.  Here is my list:

    • Mac-n-cheese with bacon, fried, wrapped in candied/brown sugar bacon and lightly fried again
    • Chocolate, bacon, popcorn balls
    • Chocolate bacon with chili powder
    • Alabama Rolls – my boyfriends famous party snack that includes bacon cream cheese, and a few other special ingredients
    • Bacon Waffles
    • Bacon waffle sundae
    • Bacon wrapped scallops
    • Candied bacon
    • Home potatoes
    • Pasta-n-stuff
    • Baked Potato
    • Bacon Hamburger
    • Bacon Pizza
    • BLT

You got to respect bacon and how versatile it is! Even fakin-bacon is tasty!
