My mother's voice pulls me through again....
"Everything in moderation, and you'll be fine!"
Cheers mom, really.
So, with a light vegetarian breakfast, I can move onto a more glutonous dinner. (My favorite sin, of course!)
Yes, that is a jar of bacon fat...fresh from my refridgerator. Although I stand by oil olive, using bacon fat now and then adds a certain something.....Something besides fat. There is a smokey element that is really nice when added to vegetables, or the base of a soup. Even eggs cooked with with bacon fat get a rounded flavor without breaking out a big breakfast spread.
Don't worry, mom said it will all be okay.
