Everyone loves bacon!!

What would you do if you had a nice big slab of bacon?  What if one of your friends who just turned the big 3-0 loves bacon???  Well… Since it’s Sunday… which means you’re already going to want bacon with breakfast…

The bacon, of course… with fried tomatoes, fried eggs and a slice of Pamela’s bread

You should be a real pal and make some bacon fudge for your aging friend…. 

Yah… She’s getting old… Probably needs the chemical rush of chocolate to go with the bacon…

Yah… those lumps… nice thick cut bacon pieces…

Recipe — I want to add that the sifting part of this recipe sucks… I mean it takes forever… but you end up with lumpless fudge… so it’s totally worth it!!

I mean, that should take the sting out of just passing another decade mark right? 🙂  Happy 30th Ashley!!  (Not the Ashley from yesterday, another one…  Apparently I collect Ashley’s)

While I waited for the fudge to harden…We had a rockstar summer lunch!!

Nothin wrong with some GMCR Wild Mountain Blueberry to help you face the afternoon… and the Smores…

Mozzaball all torn up, tossed with cut up tomates, basil from the garden…  Tossed with garlic salt and evoo.  And green beans… Which my handsome man grilled with a mix of 1 tbsp evoo, 2 tbsp balsamic, a dash of garlic salt and red pepper flakes… Theron even wanted in (that blur in the left bottom corner of the picture is him)!!!

Gotta get back to cleaning house now… the dictator Smores orders it….
