In honor of one of my favorite proteins… let’s celebrate everything bacon in observance of ‘International Bacon Day’
As most of you have read, when possible I will find a way to incorporate the flavor and yumminess that is bacon in my dishes. So I thought it would be fun to ask you all to e-mail me a brief paragraph and possibly a picture of YOUR favorite way of using bacon. It could be as simple as an add on to an existing dish or a delish way of using bacon as the star in your favorite dish. For example tonight, I am going to make one of my favorite bacon appetizers, ‘bacon wrapped dates’ this dish is so simple to make and explodes with flavor in your mouth with every bite full. Simply cut open dried dates, remove the pit, fill the cavity with your choice of blue cheese and then wrap that beauty with a strip of bacon and use a tooth pick to secure it.
After a bit of a chill in the fridge, you can either deep fry each package or simply put them in the oven to crisp up. Talk about rich and flavorful… you can’t eat just one!
Hope to see a few emails in my inbox by end of the week, so I can share some of the top picks with you all….. So get your BACON on and start cook’in!

Catch you later with my ‘date’… dish that is!
at a low simmer…
