You didn’t think I was going to let a whole summer go by without s’mores-ing, did you?
Well, I may have slid in just in the nick of time, but I think I made up for lost time. Because this just might be the best, most decadent s’mores creation I’ve ever had. I mean, it’s quite frankly out of control. Inappropriate. Obnoxious. But it was also one of the best things I’ve eaten in a long, long time, so how could I deprive you, my loyal readers, of the ultimate in s’mores goodness? I could never do that to you.
I present to you Sweet Potato Bacon Breakfast Tacos, a.k.a. the time I took a healthy vegetable and fried it in a full inch of bacon fat and called it breakfast.
For the record, I regret nothing.
See, we’re really into breakfast food ‘round the clock around here. We eat black bean breakfast burritos (my super-simple weeknight dinner specialty, if I do say so myself) or veggie-loaded egg scrambles for dinner at least once a week. Literally the only thing that Brad knows how to make is an buttery egg-and-cheese breakfast sandwich. It’s safe to say we are egg-and-cheese devotees, so when I realized the other day that I’d never tried my hand at an epic breakfast taco, my food-blogger mind started churning on overdrive.
I’d like to formally introduce you to what will be henceforth be known as The Summer of Quick and Easy Recipes on My Bacon-Wrapped Life.
It’s not ideal, but it’s real life, people. With a crazy (at least, crazy for my super-homebody self) travel schedule that’s packed my summer with weddings and wedding-errands and lake vacations and friend visits, my summer is lookin’ a lotta wonderful but also a little nutso. Which means keeping up with this blog is going to be an adventure and a half for this working girl. So I just wanted to throw out some advance warning that this here space will tend more towards the quick and easy and less towards the slow-simmered Bolognese/homemade cinnamon rolls/fancy-pants stuff for the next few months. Which I think is actually quite perfect for the summer, ya know? Don’t we all really just want something fast and mindless and delicious and hot-kitchen-time minimizing?
That’s the summer dream, people.
And in a blink of an eye, it’s that time of year again. Guys, this week is my two-year blogiversary!
It feels like just yesterday we were celebrating one year of bacon and lovin’ with this salted caramel bacon ice cream pie. I mean seriously. How was that one year ago?!
So while I can’t believe it’s been two years that we’ve been hangin’ out in this here corner of the internet, I definitely knew we’d be in need of some major celebration. As you probably know by now, in my book, that usually takes the form of an ultra-decadent sweet-and-salty bacon dessert. Also, it’s Father’s Day! If meat in a dessert doesn’t scream “Dad’s day”, I don’t know what does. I know my super sweet-tooth (and bacon-tooth?) Dad would agree!
