Normanally Sweethot Dill Pickles

Norman...ally...Get it?

Norman…ally…Get it? Kenny thought they would be pretty good on Taco Burgers!

I made these pickles this week for our grand daughters significant other whose birthday was Wednesday and whose last name is Norman, hence the name I gave it. I figured we wouldn’t see him for his big day as they live about an hour and a half away and everything depends on his work schedule and ours did not fit for us to go in that direction.

This was actually perfect as I wanted them to marinate in the frig for at least a few days so they could soak up all the flavor of the sugar, hot sauce, red pepper and garlic. Did I mention, he loves, Loves, LOVES hot food and there’s nothing better than something made in the kitchen especially for him. The only problem here is that we love them too and if they don’t get here soon, or visa versa, I might have to make another batch as his birthday gift might disappear to the pickle monster lurking in our frig!!!!

Fried Green Tomato BLT

I smell BACON!!!

I smell BACON!!!

Again today I am going to start off with something different than today’s recipe. Kenny and I are great-grandparents again! Niklaus Harper Norman came to us last night at 7:48 last night weighing in at 8 lbs 13 oz and a whopping 21-1/4 inches, OMG he’s gonna be a tall one…………. Kudos to daddy Eric, mommy Chey and of course big brother Urlic, love you guys!

I'm getting to old for this....

I’m getting to old for this….

If you’re anything like my Husband, he thought this sounded weird (kinda like him, I suppose, ha ha)! As a Southern boy through and through and a lover of his fried green tomatoes and his bacon he shocked me with his reply; it was, “That sounds crazy to me!”. This wasn’t an original idea from yours truly but was inspired by a Chef Curtis who is a spokes person and chef for our local Winn Dixie and Harvey’s supermarkets here in Florida. Guess what folks, Husband loved it and is chompin at the bit for me to make them again in the very near future!
