Bacon Syrup

Good morning! I hope all is well with you this Thursday.

I suppose we have some catching up to do, huh?

I spent the day yesterday with my mom. She picked me up in Ocala a little after 9 a.m., we drove two hours for an appointment for her and I didn’t arrive home until close to 7 p.m.

Even though there was personal business to take care of, my mom and I made sure to allot about half an hour of fun time for a quick trip to World Market before heading back to Ocala.

Oh how I love World Market and wish there was one near our house. They have such fun things… like bacon flavoring syrup.

Not so sure about that one! I wonder when Starbucks will start offering bacon lattes?

Or perhaps you’d prefer some spotted dick?

Believe it or not, I’ve actually tried spotted dick one time before when my family and I were in London last year and thought it was pretty good! (TWSS?)

I ended up leaving with new coffee and a new kind of tea to try.

Coconut cocoa!

I brewed a cup with my breakfast this morning and am not sure what to think.

I think I may need to add some milk and maybe a pinch of sugar to make it more palatable. Any suggestions? I typically drink tea without adding anything, but this flavor seems like it would benefit from a little somethin’ somethin’.

Along with my tea, I had a batch of overnight oats topped with a sliced banana and chopped almonds.

It was a filling breakfast, that’s for sure!

Workout

Before breakfast, I headed to the gym to complete an upper body workout after 20 minutes on the elliptical. My workout included three sets of 15 – 20 repetitions of the following exercises:

My arms feel like they’ve been through the ringer!

Question of the Morning

  • What is the strangest food you’ve ever tried?

I’ve tried alligator but cannot thing of anything else particularly unusual! I’m a pretty adventurous eater though and will try nearly anything once (except bugs!).

    So my old room mate was really into bacon, and we actually bought that for him a couple of years ago. He made us a ravioli with Alfredo sauce with the bacon syrup in the sauce. It was actually pretty good. Hint of bacon without the actual bacon.

    Now would I try it in a drink? Not so much, but as a sauce, thumbs up.
