    So I was on facebook and made a status update about how I want some tacos.

    My friend asked, "what's up with you and tacos?" to which I responded with a list of foods I loved, one of which included broccoli pizza topped with bacon, sausage, meatballs and pepperoni..now I eat this like once a year so its nothing crazy...but then something struck me...something magical, something almost too good to be true.



    Are you ready for this?

    You sir, have excellent taste and deserve the utmost respect for the ability to consume bacon and keep those abs.

    I have a fear and loathing for bacon. I don't want to see it, smell it, taste it or be anywhere near it. Last night my boyfriend went out to dinner with a friend and brought me home a burger. I could see pieces of bacon sticking out from the bun and was horrified. My bf said he didn't know it was on the burger and to just pick it off, but I was a big cry baby and refused because we all know the smell and taste of bacon permeates everything it touches.

    Please tell me when the option is finally available you will marry him. Any man who will willingly bring you a bacon burger is sooooo marriage material.

    No, any guy willing to pick off strips of bacon from said burger because of an irrational phobia is marriage material in my book icon_biggrin.gif



    That is all.

    hahaha, thanks Doomsday.

    Heartrobb, my heart, taste buds, and stomach weep for you! How can anyone deny themselves the nirvana like pleasure of bacon. Someone short of having cardio/pulmonary health concerns I mean... and jews and muslims come to think of it.

    I'm making pork ribs with garlic and black pepper rub with homemade barbeque sauce and sauteed onions icon_smile.gif


    But I did just buy a pound of bacon so maybe I'll have some of that for desert instead of the pomegranate.... or maybe both.


    PS: DoomsDayAlpaca I'm totally trying your idea next time I go shopping.

    I love bacons!!! Knowing that I bake a lot, my coworkers asked me to make something with bacons. I made 24 maple french toast with bacon cupcakes with cinnamon maple cream cheese frosting - they were gone before I even had one myself.

    I had some chicken marinated in Sriracha, garlic, lime, greek yogurt and cumin. Grilled some squash and zucchini, and had a ceaser salad on the side. It was pretty tasty!

    This is what I posted on Facebook last night-
    And I ate this as leftovers tonight....was delicious and low cal:

    Pineapple Tilapia Marinade with Cilantro, Peppers Cubed & Monterrey Jack Cheese on Sunday, November 7, 2010 at 7:21pm
    Ingredients:


    4 Tilapia fillets

    3/4 cup of diced pineapple (save the juice!)

    Sea salt and grated pepper to taste

    2/3 cups of Monterrey jack cheese (I like to put some chopped jalapeno in there)

    1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese

    2 tablespoons of olive oil

    1/2 fresh chopped cilantro

    1 tablespoon of canola oil

    1/2 red bell pepper, diced

    1/2 green bell pepper, diced

    1/2 red sweet onion, diced (grab a washcloth or Kleenex for the eyes!)

    lime wedges

    dill, to taste


    Making the dinner:

    Combine fish and pineapple (with the juice) in a big bowl or flat tray. Season with salt and pepper and marinate for 15 minutes on both sides. I might recommend ya do more, but not toooo much, K?

    Pre-heat the over to about 250 or slightly more. I have an inefficient oven, so I put it up to 300 degrees.

    Separately, heat oil in a big a** large skillet over high heat - burn it up baby...for about 5 minutes.

    You should have already combined the peppers, onions, salt, pepper, dill, and canola oil for about 10 - 15 minutes.

    Whoops, forgot to mention that...

    So, back to the huuuge skillet - saute the mixture until just cooked through. This may only take 5 minutes.

    Then, add the fist mixture and saute for 2 minutes or longer (don't overcook it). Flip the fish once.

    Make sure it's *just* cooked through. Flakey white is the goal for this chicken-esque fish.

    Then, pull out the flat oven tray, and dump everything, carefully, I should say, onto the tray.

    Put the cheese on-top of the fish. Add the fresh cilantro.

    Now, everything is in the tray, basking in the heat. Keep a close watch on the fish in the oven.

    You just wanna keep that stuff in there until the cheese is melted. It's sooooo very good.

    I just ate this and had to share this recipe with you. I am guessing that this will make an excellent leftover package tomorrow night.

    I ate it with sweet potato mash that I heated with melted butter, Saigon cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.

    Mmmmm...

    Okay, now, back to the Philadelphia Eages, who look like they're gonna pull it off and beat Indiana.

    No offense to my friends that are Colts fans. It may not be a repeat year for the Colts (fingers crossed).

    Probably I'm going to jinx the Eagles now that I just typed that.

    Oops.

    Have a great night!

    Found a great bacon substitute (if there is such a thing) at the health food store today - nitrate free low sodium andouille turkey sausage. So I winged it tonight and for the first time made the most delicious and healthy cajun gumbo, so easy that anyone who can boil water can make it in only 20 minutes. No browning, sauteeing, stir-frying, broiling, baking, steaming, roasting or baking required.

    I know it's a little weird but guests usually ask me for my recipes so I keep a camera on hand in the kitchen to remind me of the ingredients for things that I throw together for the first time. Throw all this in a covered saucepan and simmer for 10 minutes:

    - andouille turkey sausage (precooked)
    - shrimp (precooked)
    - 1 can kidney beans
    - 1 can small red (or black) beans
    - 1 can salt free diced tomatos
    - fresh spinach

    Then add the Success brown rice that took 10 minutes to cook and simmer for several more minutes so the rice absorbs the flavor. No added spices needed since the sausage was spicy. This was my first try, in the future I'll experiment with a rice cooker, raw meats, crawfish, fresh vegetables, broths instead of just bean juice, and slow cook dry beans and lentils per usual when batch cooking but the intent was a quick, easy, uber healthy meal that'll reheat great as leftovers.
