Hello Sunday, lets review.

This week I made Creamed Corn with Bacon, oh so good, Dinner for one, farm fresh egg on toast topped w sautéed onions, peppers, mushrooms & sliced tomatoes, love breakfast for dinner, a Hummingbird Cocktail, little on the sweet side but very refreshing, a small batch of Chocolate Covered Cherries, forgot how good these are, a Steak Fajita Pizza, really good and finished the week with an Omelet stuffed with sautéed onions, peppers, mushrooms, arugula, fresh goat cheese and topped with a few dashes of Tabasco.

A decent week of making if I do say so myself. Now I need to go weed the garden and wait for my undependable sister to deliver my CSA haul she picked up 4 days ago.

What are you making this week?

Creamed Corn with Bacon
My Savory entry for Baconfest this year was Creamed Corn with Bacon, a Michael Symon recipe featured in Food & Wine Magazine. (click pic for link) This did not win but it was extremely rich and delicious and worth the effort. My only change to the recipe was I substituted crème fresh for sour cream, that could have added to the richness a bit and I did top with a few chopped scallions. An added bonus to this recipe was learning how to make a corn stock, this was delicious and lucky for me I had some extra which I am freezing and will be making corn chowder with soon. Thanks F&W and Michael Symon for a great recipe and introducing me to a new technique.
