It’s a cold, but beautiful, day here in central Iowa and I got things kickin’ with a nice, light gym sesh. 30 minutes @ 4.0 with a 5% incline on the treadmill, followed by 20 minutes on the elliptical trying to watch VH1′s Top 20 countdown.
Ummm, I saw 1 1/2 songs in 20 minutes! How on earth do they get through all 20 in an hour?!
At any rate, I was starving by the time I got home and had planned on making a nice light breakfast of oatmeal pancakes…then I remembered I had THIS in the fridge, and all plans went out the window.
I’ve never had strong feelings either way about bacon. Ok, that’s a lie – I freaking love bacon. Love turned into infatuation though, after I had my first slice of Vande Rose Farms’ Brown Sugar Cured Bacon.
It is UNbelievable! Thick, chewy, smoky, sweet & salty. How…I…why…I…just…I don’t even know. I love it so much!
I cooked up a couple strips and made myself a proper weekend breakfast of a Bacon, Egg & Cheese Muffin!
We’re talking buttered, toasted English Muffin,
layered with melted Wisconsin Cheddar Cheese,
topped with an oozy, sunny-side up egg,
and, x marks the spot, maple cured Iowa bacon!
O. M. G. It was seriously one of the most delicious things I have ever eaten. Cheesy, savory, saucy & chewy. Love. Love. Love. Drool. Drool. Drool.
One bite and I screamed "ohmfffmypffffgosh!" My mouth was full, you see.
There was even dippage involved. Oh yeah.
Paired with a sliced banana swimming in unsweetened vanilla almond breeze. That cancels out the bacon, I’m almost positive.
UGH that was so good! I want to do it all over again! There’s always tomorrow, I suppose…
Oh! I wanted to tell you The Social Network was sooooooo good. So good! The guy who played Mark Zuckerberg was genius. I loved learning about the inner workings of how Facebook got started. Very interesting. 2 thumbs up.
Also, that 2008 Louis Martini Cabernet was perfection. I don’t know a lot about wine, but I know what tastes good and what doesn’t – and that tasted great!!!
Ok, off to vacuum. Reason #5,420 I love living close to my parents: I can borrow their stuff. Today I’m borrowing their carpet shampooer to clean my carpets. Do know how much those things cost to rent? A lot. No thanks…I’ll just use Mom’s!
Have a great Saturday!
