Weekend Cooking...Can You Have Too Much Bacon?

Yes, peanut brittle, flavored with bacon.
But actually rather tasty.

You may have noticed...or not...that I was missing the last week.
I took a rather last minute, unplanned trip, and bad blogger that I am, I left my wee blog unprepared. No posts scheduled except my Wordless Wednesday. Worse, I read nothing while I was gone. Took a book...never opened it. Bought a few books...because you know I am in desperate need of more
But found very nice bookstores.
I was out in Eastern Long Island, a quick trip through the Hamptons on the way to Montauk Point Lighthouse, then up to the north point of LI the next day, took the ferry to New London, drove to Cape Cod and ferried over for several days on Nantucket. Not much in the way of good food for me..that is another story...but some great pictures in the coming weeks...and weeks..of Wordless Wednesdays.
And some great lighthouses!
Ok, this had little to do with food, except that snack with bacon. But...I was away!

This is my contribution this to this week's Weekend Cooking.
"Weekend Cooking is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, fabulous quotations, photographs.

  1. Too funny! I love the pig nose on Bacon.

    I cannot wait to see your new photos.

    And being active and taking photos and seeing new things is wonderful -- no guilt for not reading.

  2. I was going to mention the pig nose on the photo too! My son would want to try this - he thinks bacon is good with everything.

  3. awhile ago, I had some pecan sandies with bacon. there were quite good.
    everything is better with bacon!

  4. Well, you know, Vosges makes bacon chocolate bars. They sell them for $7.50 on their web site, which is here:

  5. I know a woman who makes chocolate and bacon cupcakes ... I haven't had them, but I'm willing to try!

    So glad you got up to the Cape and Nantucket; will look forward to seeing your photos!

  6. Lighthouses? Did you say Lighthouses? and Cape Cod? and Nantucket? How can bacon compare, and there will always be you are so lucky you had that time away. Can't wait for more pictures and some 'chat' about the trip.

    And oh yes......bacon is Good.

  7. I love sugar with bacon. Vosges bacon chocolate is a favorite treat of mine!

    And sounds like a lovely trip!

  8. Sounds like a fabulous trip!

    And oddly enough, I can understand the appeal of bacon flavored peanut brittle.....

  9. Little jealous of the trip there Caite. Life is too short, so run away and see lighthouses as often as you can. Don't worry about us slobs. And to answer the question, NO, you cannot get enough bacon!

  10. I'm with Molly - bacon flavored peanut brittle sounds good for some reason.

  11. Your trip sounds oh, so fantastico!! I'm sure bacon and sugar would be delicious together.

  12. Welcome back! I can't even imagine a bacon peanut brittle combination.... would love to try that one!


please speak up, I LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!!
