Dinner Club: Bacon Bonanza

Monthly Feature
Each month...six friends get together for great food and good times! Check out the recipes and rundown.

The Shooks hosted and made the appetizers and entree. The Jaegers brought over tasty beverages, and the Shalins were in charge of dessert. The theme was Bacon Bonanza. Here's how it broke down:


Bacon Wrapped Pineapple

Cayenne Candied Bacon

Avocado BLT

Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing

Main Course:
Bacon, Chicken* and Tomato Pasta
*Chicken was an extra the recipe didn't call for

Vanilla Ice Cream with Caramelized Bacon and Sensational Chocolate Sauce

PDT's Bacon-Infused Old Fashioned

The Rundown: My arteries feel violated. Even the bourbon cocktail was infused with bacon fat. I honestly don't even want to look at bacon for a good two weeks...maybe longer. I particularly enjoyed the Cayenne Candied Bacon. Thick cuts of bacon, super sweet, with a nice, slow burn at the end. Everything was great, and even the crumbled bacon bits worked well in the dessert.

That's terrible, Kevin! Not too many years ago, I would've considered that an outstanding plan! I do love me some occasional bacon and/or pork belly, though. Y'all get an "A" for effort, for sure! When's vegetarian or juice fast week?

what the heck did Molly eat or drink?

Molly really took it for the team this month. Although I don't feel sorry for her...she's the only one that evening who's life expectancy didn't go down three years.
