lillie and her bacon band-aid

On the drive home, I always bring up the meals they ate that day and inquire about what they would like to eat for dinner. Tonight we had leftover chicken noodle soup and a waffle cone with homemade strawberry honey icecream.

Me “What do you want for dinner tonight?”

Lillie: “I want bacon for dinner!”

Me: “Really? I had a spinach salad with bacon on it for lunch today.”

Lillie: “Mmmm. I love bacon!”

Me: “Lillie, did you know that bacon comes from pigs.”

Lillie: “No Daddy, mud comes from pigs!”

This one is not for the children. I’m having a flashback from the Gilroy Garlic Festival…”there is no way I would like the taste of garlic in my cherished ice cream!” Oh how wrong I was. Sweet roasted garlic with some cream and sugar – don’t knock it until you try it. I hope the same can be said about this fascinating concoction.

Click on the link for the recipe and suggestions on how to incorporate glorious bacon into yet another facet of your life. The whole brownie points blog is great…tons of clever recipes and ideas. I’m going to go make a smoky bloody mary right now.
