If cooking kale and tempeh in bacon fat is wrong, then I don’t want to be right.
Yep. Bacon. And it was good.
Sizzle baby, sizzle.
Tonight’s dinner started with the last bit of bacon I had in the fridge. I fried it up in the skillet, then set the bacon to the side for later.
Then in went the onion and carrot in the same pan I used to cook the bacon.
Next, the tempeh.
Cooked until it looked like this.
Finally, the kale.
Two last additions. (yes, those are cherries)
I’m not 100% sure what to call this random concoction, but it was good. It was probably the bacon – bacon makes everything better. And who knew cherries and bacon was such a winning combo? I approve.
Derek approved too. He finished the skillet… it was probably the bacon. 😉
Paired with the last piece of the multigrain baguette.
If you have a family member who isn’t a fan of kale, I would suggest cooking it in bacon fat. It might defeat the purpose of the health benefits of kale, but it sure helps with the taste.
I think nuts are becoming my favorite go-to snack. Not only are they super easy to grab, but they’re filling and full of healthy fats and proteins. Plus, they taste good.
Post-dinner ice cream.
Holy cow – is tomorrow really Friday?!
Only one more week until I’m heading to Boston for Healthy Living Summit! Eeeekkk!!!!
