So I decided for my friend's party on Friday night that I would bring some food. I had gone to a dinner party a few weeks ago and the host had made bacon wrapped dates. I know, sounds odd, but trust me, they are amazing!!! My friend particularly loves bacon...so...perfect.
I went to 3 grocery stores before I found pitted dates.
So, this is what you do: Take pitted dates and stuff them with an almond. Then, take some bacon and cut it into thirds. Wrap the date in the bacon. Put them in the oven until the bacon is cooked. That's it. SO GOOD. They didn't even make it around the room once before they were gone! (Buddy loved them too!)
So, I have re-established my faith in my cooking abilities. It was an easy thing...but came out great. Con - now Buddy thinks I can cook... WRONG.
