Wanna make anything taste good? Wrap it in bacon, that’s what we did. For dinner we’re eating chunks of turkey breast wrapped in bacon with a slice of both serrano and jalapeno peppers tucked inside. The turkey was baked until just cooked through then served with a corn salad. The salad consisted of roasted fresh white corn, sweet and tart granny smith apples, red onion, radishes, parsley, lemon juice, dijon, and olive oil.
T: this was damn good. Those turkey breast jalapeno poppers were soo juicy, spicy, and delish. The salad was great for lightening the whole thing up. I dug it.
A: me, freaking, too. serious yum. i mean, anything with bacon is yum, but these flavors really worked well together for me. the jalapeno/serrano morsels inside of the bacon-wrapped turkey set it off and the slightly sweet and tangy salad balanced the smokey savory out. i could totally eat some of this right this minute. damn shame we gobbled it all down at the time.
T: you mentioned while we were eating that the bacon helped keep the turkey from becoming dry. That certainly was true. The turkey breasts were very moist. And dry poultry really gets on my nerves so that was a good thing.
A: hehehe 😛 silly. while dry poultry doesn’t really “get on my nerves” necessarily, it does suck. sooooo…. do you have a rating for this particular little ditty?
T: Yeah, I give it a 4.59/5. Super tasty, very well cooked. It lost some points for being so bacon-oriented.
A: what are you crazy?!? you must be mad to deduct points for it being bacon oriented! bacon rocks!
T: bacon does rock, but, like you said, bacon makes everything taste good. So you lost points for difficulty. Plus, it’s not exactly healthy.
Big pile of corn and apple saladA: there was soooo little fat in the rest of the meal that the 1-2 slices of bacon you consumed made up for it not being a damn hamburger or rack of lamb. if you hadn’t binged on the turkey nuggets you wouldn’t feel like you consumed so much bacon! recommended serving size is 3-4 pieces! not 6.
T: Well. That’s doesn’t mean it’s getting a higher score, woman.
A: 😛 i also can’t believe you deduct points for bacon being flavorful without being difficult! hehehe you want me to smoke my own freaking bacon?!? buy me a smoker! 😉
T: then you would lose points for being inefficient. There’s simply no need to smoke your own bacon. Unless you bring in a pig and have nothing else to do with it.
A: heheh okay crackhead. I give the meal a 4.65/5. I really really liked it. personally, when i was eating it, i cut up small pieces of the turkey-bacon-pepper nuggets and ate it with a forkful of salad. it really worked. like i said earlier, i would love to have some more and be noshing on it as we speak.
T: I enjoyed eating the turkey/bacon/pepper separate from the salad. Either way it was super tasty. Don’t get me wrong, I really like bacon wrapped around things, like, um, a lot. Feel free to wrap stuff in bacon anytime. I support you.
A: sweet! i’m gonna make bacon wrapped ice-cream sandwiches for dinner tonight!
T: now don’t be a crazy ho. 😉
