Okay so no recipe needed here and I don’t think I need to expound upon the unhealthy deliciousness that is bacon . 68% of bacon’s calories come from fat , almost half of which is saturated. Add sodium and a whopping dose of cholesterol and you’ve got yourself one tasty breakfast as well as a coronary-waiting-to-happen.
Sometimes, I will fry it up in a cast iron skillet (you know, so it’s “healthier”) but usually just pop it in the microwave, covered with a paper towel, for one minute per slice.
Bacon: Not just for breakfast!
And if the nitrates and carcinogens haven’t killed you by lunch, you could try my version of the classic BLT which I aptly named a BLOAT: bacon, lettuce, onion, avocado and tomato. Death wish deliciousness, right there! (Be sure to put it on wheat bread too, just so you can feel somewhat virtuous.)
For dinner, I add bacon to a heap of vegetables in order to trick my brain into thinking that the bacon may, just may, be a good-for-me food. It works too. I was totally fooled and ate and ate without any thought, care, or concern for my general health. It’s so much fun- you should try it sometime.
See- there are green things in there!

Mom always said to clean my plate… so…
A few or 10 slices of coppa paired with some Humboldt Fog and Winey Goat cheeses, a touch of fig jam, cracked pepper crackers and the mandatory bottle of red wine make for one tasty and fattening afternoon! I’m proof of that!
Okay, no recipe there either as it’s all thrown on a plate and then consumed in record time yet I did do one exciting thing with that other processed mystery meat: the Hot Dog .
The kids love ‘em and unfortunately so do I!

And with that, I’m going for a run… vacation sure is fun but the results are not! I abhor dieting but now, have no other choice- wish me luck in losing that 10 pounds as quickly as possible!!!
Has anyone else ever “let themselves go” while on vacation? Did you worry about losing those extra pounds o’ fun like me or just get back to your healthy habits without a thought? Anyone else feel like throwing their scale straight out the window?
