“Bacon’s bacon.” – “Desire Under The Elms”, Eugene O’Neill
It’s a nice way to end the summer; BBQ and Bacon and Back to School. (All of my parenting friends agree, with the last part especially). Add some Bubbles and you’ve got yourself a holiday. America’s pride and joy will always be their bacon. It’s celebrated in cupcakes, cocktails, Colorado. There’s a propensity of alliteration today, bear with me. It is definitely what vegetarians miss most and what Lady Gaga has yet to wear. Bacon, bacon, bacon!
This recipe is from a friend of DIO! and an upcoming guest, Jeff Parker. His food blog Jeff Parker Cooks is a great follow for food enthusiasts and gourmet amis alike. Enjoy Jeff’s Bumped Up Bacon Wrapped Sweet & Spicy Peppers. Click photo for recipe
