This has been a long Spring, lots of rain and cool temps that have prevented me from doing much gardening. If you've been watching the news, you may have noticed that Arkansas has been stuck in rain mode for over a week with a front that has stalled and worn out it's welcome. But I have high hopes that the clouds will eventually clear and all of these plants can go outside for a little sunshine! We have beans and squash, corn and okra, tomatoes and peppers. I've been babysitting these plants for a while now and the TLC will be worth it all when I can make one of these...
All that talk about bacon being good for me yesterday made me hungry for a BLT! Nothing on God's green Earth smells better than bacon frying, and if you had a mother or grandmother who made bacon just the way you liked it you can count yourself lucky.
One thing for sure, you don't have to do much to the really great foods. This summer I'm looking forward to all the "greats"...grilled hot dogs and burgers with potato salad and baked beans, fried fish with cornbread and coleslaw... and bacon in all it's glory!
