My son loves that song. Since I saw it on 365 Days of Bacon, he’s been singing it non-stop. BOOM PIG
I love bacon. So much. So much that today, when I was speaking at the Women’s Small Business Program on the Graduate Panel, my friend and the organizer of the class told everyone that I’m bacon crazy. So it inspired me to make tonights entire meal with bacon.
Second the coleslaw: I may have invented baconnaise tonight. I started with the nomnompaleo.com recipe for macadamia nut mayo and since I didn’t have any lemons, I subbed with a lime, I didn’t have any dijon mustard so I used yellow and a splash of my maple mustard salad dressing, I used apple cider vinegar instead of plain, and then I realized I was out of macadamia nut oil too… I grabbed olive oil, walnut oil and some more bacon fat (I keep a container of it in the fridge). SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!! I almost wanted to eat it with a spoon!!
Side note… Grocery shopping on Sundays is not the best for fresh produce. I had to buy a bag of shredded coleslaw mix cause they were all out of real cabbage. FAIL. Then I made the coleslaw recipe from Anna Nimmity with extra bacon and chopped macintosh apples. YUMMO.
Lastly, the sweet potato fries: I plopped them on the pan I cooked the bacon in (if you’re not cooking your bacon in your oven, you’re working too hard!!) and slathered them with some more bacon fat and then sprinkled them with salt and pepper and paprika. WHAT THE DUECE?? Made a little maple/honey/mustard dipping sauce and voila!
The meal made me feel better for missing bacon this morning. I was so nervous for my talk at the class that I skipped breakfast, just my morning latte… and then right before the class was sooo hungry had to run and grab something from City Market. I was pleasantly surprised to find their egg salad was local cage-free eggs! And I thought I’d try a muffin from West Meadow Farm Bakery as I’ve had their brownies before and they were amazing, so muffin, yeah. It was a good ‘on the go’ & ‘best you can’ meal I could do. But no bacon, so I was sad. 🙂 Just kidding. Well, only a little.
