Bacon and More!

Standard

Hi Everybody!   Yep – bacon is on the menu as always………after I have my yogurt of course with my “not so hidden pill” (does Mom really think I don’t know she’s spiked my yogurt with that stuff??!!!).  Anyway,  I wanted to show you my latest bacon treat suggestion from my good friend Nylablue…..check this out!

BACONFRIES

Mom said she would have made these for me but can’t figure out how to make them curl FAST enough after she takes them out of the frying pan before they harden up!  We’ll have to work on that.

I promised you some updated garden shots.  I’ve done an exceptional job keeping Mom’s garden going – it’s just some boxes on the deck after all – how hard can it be???   Mom took all of these yesterday morning.  I tried to find the photos I shared when Mom first planted all this stuff but couldn’t…….trust me – all the plants were TEENSY TINY and just look at them now!

SEE?  I’m a gardener with a green thumb (my extra toes come in handy when I have to have a green thumb you know!).

Hope everyone has a fab weekend…………I’m keeping Mom busy working on my duties as Travel Director of the trip on the riverboat on Cat Scouts……….this morning we get off the riverboat and head into the swamp………don’t worry – I’ll share some photos AFTER this trip is over with – I know you wanna see them!

HAPPY BACON CATURDAY!

  1. Great gardening work, Sammy! My human is envious of anyone who can make a garden look pretty. She just doesn’t have that kind of touch. (She is a wiz in Photoshop, though! She keeps saying that as if it makes up for all her other faults.)

    • Your Mom is right – photoshopping is a lot harder than gardening (my Mom says)……..she used to have a LOT of garden space but it was just too much work so we’re down to deck boxes and a few in front of the house PERIOD!

    • HAHAHAHA…..Cupcake that’s what Mom does some years when things just plain won’t cooperate. This year she’s concentrating on the stuff on the deck – why? Because she just has to walk out on the deck from the kitchen and water instead of going OUT into the yard – that means she can do it in her PJs I the early morning (shhhhh don’t tell).

      Hugs, Sam

    • Yes – it’s hot as heck here but not as hot as there I’m sure. Mom has to water those deck plants SOMETIMES twice a day because of the sun – we leave the umbrella open and it helps a bit with the sun cover but everything else just FRIES!

  3. I love your petunias! Ours were a total mispurchase this year, they look like raised on a nuclear test side :o( Your porch is great, it’s a place what says, welcome, take a place and grab a book and a cool drink :o) Have a super caturday and enjoy the bacon fries ( mom’s cousin made them once, it was a donkey work to wrap the bacon around the potatoes)

    • Hi Easy….yeah Mom said she figured it might not be worth putting the bacon around the fries – why not just have them both and take a bite out of one then a bite out of the other??!!! HAHAHA….anyway, our petunias are looking a bit “leggy” – Mom needs to cut them back….but will she? Probably not! Mom and Dad have “happy hour” every night before dinner on the front porch – they have a little wine or beer and GET HAPPY….HAHAHA

    • That’s a good idea on those bacon fries……they sure sound good – Mom promised me she’d make them for me (and her!). Our garden used to be a lot bigger and most of it was down in the yard – now Mom finds it easier to take care of it up on the deck in the boxes!!!!

      Hugs and Happy Caturday

  6. What beautiful flowers and plants, Sammy! You definitely have a green thumb (or toes)! I can’t believe how huge that tomato plant is….ours didn’t do very well this year, though we are getting a few tomatoes.

  7. Great suggestion for bacon and fries – we won’t even need the ketchup:) The flowers are all gorgeous – Mom loves the lantana too.

  8. Wowwee….your container plants are beautiful. I have never heard of lantana….don’t sell it around her….is it perennial or annual? Even your tomato plant is beautiful. My patio tomatoes are drying out quickly now and the tomatoes seem to turn red quicker when they dry out. Found out by accident.

    • Lantana is an annual but Mom has cut it WAY back in late Fall and it’s popped up again in Spring in some of the sheltered areas of the garden up by the house! Cool huh??? We have to water that tomato in a pot TWICE a day!!!

  10. Sammy, we think if you want to make those fries, you need a deep fryer so you can wrap the uncooked bacon around the fry and then plop it into the deep fryer. They sure look meowvolous. Your garden is exquisite. Purple lantana is one of our mom’s favorites as well. She couldn’t find any this year. Phooey!

    • This was the first year we could find purple lantana too – I guess EVERYBODY likes that one!!! Someone else suggested making the bacon fries in the oven……cook the fries first, wrap the bacon around and put in a hot oven until bacon is cooked. We’re gonna try one way or another – Mom thinks they’d be DELISH!!
