After DH’s stem cell transplant procedure in December of 2007, he lost his taste for bacon. We were never BIG bacon eaters, but it had its place. Recently there was a sale on the store brand of bacon so I splurged on two packages and cooked it up all at once, thinking that I would just sprinkle it in things here and there on my own plate.
As it turned out, I found a lot of things to put it into whilst cooking, albeit in small amounts. It has been very handy to have a little bacon grease to saute things in from time to time, and the slight smokiness of the bacon itself has added a nice dimension to a few dishes. I’ll try to remember to mention this as I go along.
I don’t think we are quite ready for BLT’s just yet, but we are enjoying my latest experiments!
