a lot of g says, t says

j puts bacon everywhere

t says:  If kp, j, and me had a fight, and the winner was solely determined by who loves bacon more, I’m not sure who would win.  kp’s got the culinary mastery over j and me (he makes bacon-covered breadsticks), but I can claim that I ate a heaping plate of bacon 6 days a week for 6 months straight (and to be honest, it wasn’t even that delicious a bacon – it was at my college cafeteria).  I’ve decided to give j a bit of an advantage of her own by gifting her a bacon-centric cookbook for her bday.  These were her first attempts:

BFF ... beautiful from far-away ... (I'll give $1 to the first person who can tell me where I'm stealing that from - cast members not permitted to guess)

If you add mussels and snow peas, it's now considered "healthy", right?

j says:  Okay so it is bacon and salmon poke (top picture) and pork tenderloin wrapped with bacon with mussels and sugar snap peas (bottom picture)
t says:  was it tasty?
j says:  sooooo good.  i used salmon intead of tuna bc the tuna didnt look fresh.  and i of course added my own variations. bc i didnt want to deep fry wonton wrappers so i used triscuits.  and [boyfriend’s name] doesnt like regular peas so i opted out.  and they didnt have fresh clams so i used mussels. you want me to blog about it?  i feel like i will be more likely to do it bc it was good and i made it.
t says: lol – nah, go study or something.  what’s the title of the book?
j says:  I love bacon
t says:  is that a statement you’re making, or the title of the book?

t steals the mic:  It turns out that “I love bacon” is the name of the book.  Furthermore, it is the center of some kind of controversy as it may or may not be a follow-up to “I <3 Corn”.  Check it out.  Corn?  Seriously?  I mean, I love me some SoJo corn just as much as the next guy, but unless it’s that corn dish from Fond, I have a hard time loving it even one-tenth as much as I love bacon.

What was the point of this post?  Three-fold:
1)  To show off j’s cooking skills.
2)  To make kp salivate.
3)  To make certain vegetarians queasy at the thought of bacon-wrapped pork (you know who you are).

If j feels so inspired, she’ll send me the recipe.  If not, then you’ll just have to deconstruct it, yourself.
