my vegetarian/vegan readers may want to stop reading now.
although i'm sure you guessed that from the title (which i kind of stole from my friend ThatGirl).
okay, is it safe? here goes.
as a direct contrast to dinners last week, i decided to try a recipe i've had bookmarked for a while: bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin.
dudes. meat wrapped in bacon? i'm in! look how pretty and pink the tenderloin cuts were:
they didn't stay pink for long, but they were still pretty.
going back to my bookmarked recipes, i decided to pair it with some creamy parmesan orzo.
the hub was mighty impressed as i rattled off what we were having for dinner, and even more so when he sat down to his plate.
i mentioned that i probably should have rounded out the meal with some kind of vegetable, but the hub shrugged it off: "nah, why ruin a good thing?" indeed.
the flavor was...bacontabulous. really - it was super tender and tasty and i'm almost sad to go out to lunch with MIL today, because i have leftovers to savor. tomorrow!
i also tried out a chocolate chip cookie recipe from my friend jessica, who swore it was excellent.
and she was totally right!
between this one and the last recipe i tried, the quest may be over, folks. are you sad?
