Baconized Chocolate

by Heather on July 28, 2010

Good morning! Halfway through the week…can I get a “WOOHOO!” from all of y’all?! :)  Yesterday’s eats were pretty amazing; first up, a Pina Colada GM:

Turkey sandwich on whole wheat with spinach:

Ok, ok, and some Doritos because they make my heart sing:

Lunch was super rainy, so I went to Whole Foods to read and picked up a packet Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter (I ended up just tasting this and then spreading the rest on some toast for Nate):

And now we get to this.

“This magic moment…”

There was a time when, in my infantile naivety, I was grossed out by the thought of bacon and dark chocolate.  Apart?  Perfect. Together?  Stank nasty.

Well my dear friends, I am OK with admitting my wrong on this one.  I purchased it on a whim, just thinking about the fact that I REALLY needed chocolate in that moment.  And so, in a moment of desperation, I went with my gut instinct.

“Mmmmmmmm…dark chocolate…….I can feel the worries of the day melting away……”

“But wait!  What’s that I taste?  A slight smokiness?”

“BAM!  Salt!”

“Dear Lord, thank you for chocolate, bacon, and salt.  Amen”

You know, it went a little something like that 😉


Dinner was amazing at our friend Emma’s house, and I’m not sorry to say that I ate about 5 pieces of garlic toast.  It’s been way, WAY too long since I last explored the amazingness that is butter + garlic + bread.  Dinner was this great pasta salad (there’s lettuce under there) with tomatoes, bell pepper, grilled chicken, and a Parmesan dressing:

Holy grapes!

Cookies…need I say more?!

We had a great time getting to meet new friends, and hang out with our amazing group.  Tonight should be fun…but I’ll just have to share the details of that later!

What’s the weirdest flavor combination you have ever heard of that sounds delicious?  What’s the weirdest one YOU’VE TRIED? If you have recipes, do share 😉
