The other night at book club my friend Diana made these. They were devoured in 2.4 seconds. Okay, I exaggerate. But not by much! She explained how easy they were to make and I had to try it myself. All you need are dried, pitted dates and bacon. Wrap the dates with the bacon, stick them in the oven at 350 and bake for 30 – 40 minutes depending on desired amount of bacon crispness.
It’s the perfect balance of salty and sweet. Plus, it’s bacon. Paul agreed we could probably wrap his shoe in bacon and it would be delicious.
Emily left today for a camping trip with the Girl Scouts. She’s going to have a blast, and I am thinking about teaching Neve how to crochet while she’s gone. I’ll have to find Oona a fun project as well. Maybe she can learn how to do laundry.
