My cousin Mickey's passion for food came from her mother. My amazing Aunt Margaret could take a packet of ketchup, some pepper and a Q-Tip and make a feast for 12! That may be a slight exaggeration, but both of those incredible Margarets both were and are incredible in the kitchen.
I love bacon. So, Mickey sent me this...
English muffins with bacon butter
1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 to 3/4 tsp Dijon mustard
4 bacon strips cooked and crumbled
4 to 6 English muffins
In bowl combine butter, mustard, and bacon. Toast muffins and spread with bacon butttter. Refrigerate leftover bacon butter. Enjoy!
You know you're loved when someone sends you a bacon butter recipe, so please share.
Mickey is on the left and her beautiful daughter Jill (who's expecting her first!!!) is on the right. I come from a long line of the weirdest people. :)
- My first job was as a "Soda Jerk" at Cone Corners in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. (Cheesy, huh?)
- Every spring, I participate in the World's Largest Trivia Contest in my hometown of Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Out of about 500 teams and 10-12,000 players, we usually finish in the top 100!!! It's 54 straight hours of useless information and I love it. See? I'm not wired right. Just for the record, my team placed 73rd this year. :)
- I am a proud doggie mommy of "Spooner." She's a rescue who was an abused puppy mill mom. I am amazed at the FANTASTIC rescues and shelters we have in West Michigan. If you think you want to add to your family, the joy of a shelter pet in unparalleled!
