Curiosity Burned the Bacon

My poor sweet husband wanted to see what would happen if we smoked the bacon on the grill. Mind you, this bacon has previously been smoked by a professional smoke house but he thought it would be interesting to have BBQ bacon.

I warned him...

But he wanted to try it anyway...

Curiosity burned the bacon...and melted my spatula.

Farm Fun

I'm sure I have mentioned this a time or two but I LOVE living on a farm. There are certain things you can do out here in the country that you just can't do in town.

 For example, most kids that live in town don't get a chance to hop on their go-cart and go crazy in the mud holes. This is hours upon hours of cheap fun and the kids have a blast. All you need is a cheap go-cart with enough rubber to hold air, a few gallons of gas, and away you go!
This is the face a farm kid having some serious fun. He has his own circle track that would make any Nascar driver jealous.

And who says only little boys can play in the mud? Here is a farm girl that knows how to have some good old fashioned farm fun. She's even in full pink John Deere garb. That a girl!

Have I mentioned I LOVE living on a farm?

Prosciutto Wrapped Pork Burgers

It's no secret, I love pork. Pork steaks, pork sausage, pork and beans, bacon, ham, the list goes on but nothing says summer like a nice, big, juicy, hand slapped, grill marked pork burger.
Pork burgers meet Proscuitto...

Proscuitto meet Pork burgers...

That's right, embrace the pork...

Love the pork...
Be grilled with the pork...

I'm sorry Mina, this is people food.

Phantom, you don't get any either.
Now, add a bun, some fresh tomatoes, a little lettuce, and some home grown corn...wait, let me wipe my mouth, I'm drooling.
Supper is served.
Oh, yes, I'm inspired how about you?
