Bacon Wrapped Dinner
Oh, I know what some of you might be thinking after reading this, is she NUTS! Well, yes I’m nuts over bacon and last night proved me totally guilty, glad I didn’t have a doctors appointment to check my cholesterol today! I was having a pork tenderloin so we could make some homemade Cubans this weekend, something we haven’t had in awhile now and have been craving; that started the whole she-bang.
When I cook off my pork tenderloin, I always wrap it in bacon and spread a little oyster sauce over the top. For some strange and eerie reason, that stupid pig just kept oinking in my ear, more bacon, more bacon! I was also having green beans and have posted a version of green beans wrapped in bacon. For last night, I did vary that recipe by just using the bacon and than sprinkled them with some brown sugar.
Sweet potato tater tots were also on the menu, another recipe I have done in the past but with regular potatoes wrapped in bacon. Again I wrapped them in bacon and sprinkled them with just a touch of brown sugar instead of the original version.
I guess in the back of deep dark mind, the bacon was telling me to enjoy me while you can because someday I might be too expensive for you to indulge your taste buds!! The only thing missing with bacon was the corn bread and Kenny wanted me to cook off some to top it off this Bacon Bonanza of a meal; I did draw the line to that suggestion though. I even heard a rumor that by this time next year, beef will be a thing of the past and what will be out there will be only for the rich and famous. Since we don’t fit into either of those categories, I guess I had better stock up while I can or get my own cow! Now like I said, it was a rumor, but it did come from a pretty good source.
So with my bacon wrapped din-din, I leave the question to you, NUTS or not? That’s all folks!
