From my roomate in college (who shared in the massive box of bacon I linked to a couple days ago). He is a big time runner, marathons and such, but readily admits that he only does that so he can eat more food.
The first beans out of the garden are in the pot cooking with some bacon and onions.
Looking forward to dinner tonight!
Quickly, while I have Internet, I wanted to gloat a little bit. There was one red tomato out in the garden, so I made a BLT. Oh, and lettuce from the garden, too.
Broke open the last package of my home-made bacon from my MT ranch friends.
Fry up some bacon… add some balsamic vinegar, and some brown sugar… a handful of dried cranberries… garlic and salt and pepper… throw in a big bunch of beet greens straight from the garden…
If anyone wanted to buy this for me, please contact me immediately for my shipping information.
The last minute or so is kinda creepy, but other than that I like it:
Bring me my bacon!
High of 85 today, and my brother’s heading home for summer break, so what’s more summery for lunch than BLT?
I brought home a bunch of that bacon–it went through the crash with me and is still delicious. But it is so big that to cook enough for 4 people is very difficult using conventional skillet or microwave techniques. So we broke out the oven racks! Turned out crispy and delicious.
Other home-made bacon that I spotted around the blogosphere today was at Defends Her Own–you should check that out too.
Two pieces of 1/4″ thick home-grown bacon, three eggs with a few tablespoons of heavy whipping cream mixed in, two pieces of toast with butter, one with home-made apple butter and one with marmalade.
Incidentally, this is the first picture on my blog that was taken from my new Droid. Fun, fun, fun…
