Sheer Decadence ~ Mar 30, 2013

We watched a Bay Bridge Series game last night (Spring training games with SF Giants and Oakland A's) and when the commercial breaks came on we switched over the Food Network to catch Guy Fieri's "Diner, Drive-ins and Dives". We're  heading out on some road trips this Spring and thought we might do some homework.

He was in San Antonio, TX at the Magnolia Pancake Haus when we tuned in. They were making Bacon Waffles. Oh Baby! We looked at each other and knew we had to make some for breakfast. We had a little bacon left from when company came last weekend so no better time than now!

Too Easy! You just cook up 5 or 6 slices of lean bacon until it's dark and crispy, crumble it into your batter and make your waffles as you always do. We covered ours with slices of fresh strawberries and a little syrup, but as you can see the options are endless. Enjoy!

As I was writing the blog, my neighbor Andrea called to chat and I told her about our discovery. She commented she best enjoy from afar: dangerous combo with questionable health consequences. We both laughed and decided once in a while might be acceptable.

So then I walk back into the house at Rod is watching a show on PBS called "Protect Your Memory". There are three main points: Skip Bad Fats, Knock out Free Radicals, and Exercise your Brain. Oh Boy, common sense rears up to slap you on the back of the head Gibbs Style. Time for a compromise.

Life is short: take a chance, dance with abandon, jump for joy, follow your passions and decide it's okay to have something decadent like bacon waffles once in a great while.
