Epicurean Kentuckian: On making mind-blowingly delicious foods

She's trying many variations on bacon & tomatoes this year - especially with avocado. But when avocados are unavailable, she found fresh torn basil is a great substitute. With a comment on portion control.
Epicurean Kentuckian: Bacon Spinach Pasta by Pen

By Tami Wilson
A favorite guest Epicurean Kentuckian writer

Looks tasty! I've been very addicted to the wonderful flavor combination of bacon and tomatoes this year, and have been making bacon, tomato, and avocado (and a plenty of hot sauce- try lots of different kinds) to fill omelettes- also wonderful with torn fresh basil leaves if you don't have avocado.

I've also been having a lot of huge salads of baby greens or spinach with freshly-cooked torn/chopped bacon, tomato, avocado or basil, olive oil and lemon juice to dress it. Mind-blowingly delicious, IMO.

Making foods that you love and are nutritious can make you dread the occasion when you have to eat out, because of time or energy constraints.

An aside to Pen: I admire your portion control! - Tami Wilson
