Oh the Horror!!

Last Friday I opened up the fridge and what did I see….horror1

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

(silent scream)

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Yes, that is precooked, ready to eat bacon.  Oh my stars and garters!

Now Better Half meant well.  She was going to make some bacon ranch potato salad (one of my favorites) for our anniversary dinner and 1) didn’t know if we still had bacon and B) knew she didn’t have time to cook up a few slices just to make the salad.  So, she was at the store and thought – why not get this?

While it goes against my bacon lovin’ beliefs, we got the box, can’t take it back, so I best eat it!

Oh boy…

More to come…

Bringin’ Up a Bacon Baby…Part Dos

As you may have read below, Saturday was Lil’ Baird’s first birthday.  A nice little party was had with family. The Lil’ one took her first bite of chocolate, destroyed a cake (with some help from daddy) and ended up gettin’ a whole mesh o’ swag.  One of the gifts was this…

present

from my brother - Eggs and Bacon.  I love the call out on the package: “No Heat, No Mess!” Really? REALLY?!? You needed to spell that out?  My baby can’t actually fry her own bacon? 

So while she has yet to taste bacon, yet alone pork, she now has TWO bacon toys to play with!  And that makes daddy smile ;-)

Bringin’ Up a Bacon Baby…All in the Family

Popped over to see my Lil’ Bro yesterday, grab a few beers, chill a bit…

While I was waiting on my brother I happened to look down at Jack Attack’s (my nephew) play kitchen and what did I see?

That’s my boy!

Bringin’ Up a Bacon Baby – Baby’s Makin’ Breakfast…

It was a Lil’ Baird takeover last weekend as we had a trip to Disney On Ice followed by dinner at Rainforest Cafe.  Unbeknownst to daddy, Saturday evenings at 6:30 are not the best time to get a quick table in the forest.  So with over a hour to kill before we could be seated, we headed out to walk the mall.

Quick stop at the toy store, first thing I see…

Yeah, that’s right…it’s a Play-Doh breakfast play set.  And what is that circled? Why some youngster is makin’ bacon!

I think Santa was providing me a sign.  It may not be an item on Lil’s Christmas list, but I have a sneaky feelin’ there still may be one under the tree come the 25th.

Bringin’ Up a Bacon Baby – Monster & Robot…

Flippin’ around On Demand tonight, trying to find a show for Lil’ Baird.  Pop open the Nickelodeon menu and at the bottom I see “Monster & Robot“.  I’ve never heard of this show before, but anything’s better than another helping of Dora, right?

Here was the first scene…

Turns out that Monster and Robot are best friends who hang out at the Makin’ Bacon restaurant and consume vast amounts of our favorite strips of swine.

I’m in.

Head over to Nick.com to check out the videos or find it On Demand.

Better with Bacon – Bucatini Pasta

Food Alice Waters Pasta

Bucatini pasta with bacon tomato sauce.

This sounds so delicious and very simple.  The two things I look for in any recipe.

Eat up!

30 ml (2 tbsp) olive oil
3 slices bacon (or pancetta), cut into 5-mm ( 1/4-inch) pieces
1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
6 medium tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped (or 8 whole canned tomatoes, drained and chopped)
Salt, to taste
340 g (12 oz) bucatini pasta (or other long, thin pasta)

In a medium saucepan over medium, heat oil. Add bacon and cook until lightly browned and fat is rendered. Use a slotted spoon to transfer bacon to a small bowl and set aside.

To fat in pan, add onion. Saute until soft, about 10 minutes. Add tomatoes and a pinch of salt. Reduce heat to low and cook for 10 minutes. Add bacon and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes.

While tomatoes cook, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to package directions. Drain and transfer to a serving platter or plates.

Taste sauce and add salt, if needed. Serve over pasta.

Makes 4 servings.
