Bacon Wednesday: Roasted tomato and bacon tart

The Chicks have had a bountiful harvest of tomatoes from the community garden at CRC World Headquarters this year. Chick One is the gardener. Chick Two is the consumer since she proudly states that “I don’t stick my hands in dirt on purpose.” That’s O.K. I find gardening – particularly in a small, controllable patch…

Bacon Wednesday: bacon cheese tartlets

The Chicks worked hard for our bacon this week. Two days of hot work in the warehouse for the School Supply Giveaway. So we deserve our bacon cheese tartlets. The recipe is from our good friend, Mrs. Pillsbury. You can just use the recipe below or hop on over to the Pillsbury site. Bacon cheese…

Bacon Wednesday: Bacon-wrapped cocktail weenies

This week for Bacon Wednesday, CRC World Headquarters presents bacon-wrapped cocktail weenies. You know you already want one. Or 10. There is obviously no nutritional value whatsoever in bacon-wrapped cocktail weenies, but the Chicks have been working diligently in our 95-degree warehouse getting ready for the annual school supply giveaway. Next week, dozens upon dozens…

Bacon Wednesday: Bacon cheeseburger dip

You just cannot go wrong when Bacon Wednesday involves baconĀ  and Velveeta. There are certain people, uninformed people, who believe that Velveeta is not really cheese. Haters gonna hate. But that’s okay. More Velveeta for the Chicks. Betsy basically made this recipe up after finding something similar on the Internet that involved “beef crumble pizza…

Spiced bacon twists

It is Bacon Wednesday and we have hit the friggin’ jackpot this week. Spiced bacon twists. They are better than pig candy. We ate a whole container full. All of them. I am going home and making some more for tomorrow, even though Thursday is not an officially sanctioned bacon day at CRC World Headquarters….

Bacon Wednesday: Bacon waffles

When one does not take regular meal breaks because one is so busy and doesn’t have time, it becomes imperative to have certain labor-saving devices at one’s disposal to make sure the staff is well fed. We have an electric skillet for frying up our bacon. We have a blender that is yet to be…

Bacon Wednesday: Bacon-wrapped water chestnuts

You’re so 50s if you remember eating bacon-wrapped water chestnuts at cocktail parties. You’re so 2012 if you still devour these beauties like peanuts. Hey, each one only has a third of a strip of bacon and there is a vegetable in the middle! Betsy and I enjoyed them immensely at Bacon Wednesday this week….

Bacon Wednesday: Bacon and Pimento Cheese Wraps

It was a highly caloric day at CRC World Headquarters as we combined two of nature’s most perfect foods: bacon and pimento cheese into one yummy, buttery wrap. Betsy makes the pimento cheese according to her grandmother’s recipe, which is totally yummy. And very unusual. Click on over here to get it. This was a…

Bacon Wednesday: The Bacon Butty

Oh, yes. I anticipate a lot of porn traffic on this one. The bacon butty is an English sandwich. It’s about as popular across the pond as the hamburger is here in the states. And it’s the essence of simplicity. There are only three ingredients: bread, butter and bacon. Really, what else do you need?…

Pig Candy

I will make this brief. We all have places to go and people to see. If you want to bribe someone to do something unpleasant that they would ordinarily refuse to do, you just need to say two words. Pig Candy. If you promise to feed people Pig Candy they will do any odious job….
