Bacon Wrapped Enoki

070Or: “Attack of the squid people!”

They do look a bit freakish.

Their pink striped bondage just accentuates those little bobbly heads. 068

Even so, who can resist that bacon flavor clinging to that velvet stem?

Not I. Not I.

(Apologies to my vegan friends. I promise to stick to untied and free vegetables in my next post.)

The hot pan sears the bacon belt. No toothpicks or handcuffs necessary. 069

The daughter who swears she does not like mushrooms, could not keep her hands off of these.

Two days ago she wanted to chop mushrooms, just for fun. I said, “Ok, if you eat it too.” She did. Raw. And then asked for more.

She so definitely does not like mushrooms. No way. And don’t try to tell her otherwise.

P.S. Thank you, thank you, for your love and sympathy for my whining. I’ll try not to subject you to it. Often. Being a parent is character building in whole new levels.

I love enoki mushrooms. This is a great idea, to wrap the enoki with bacon. I am going to try this out the next time I buy some!

Anything wrapped in bacon will taste good, except human perhaps

Belinda: They're super yummy, yep!
mkwolf: and so easy too. No recipe needed!
Christine: I think grapefruit may also be a bad combination. Or banana. Well, maybe banana is ok.
Jalna: Thanks!
Footprints: It's easy to catch girls like us, I guess. :)

I've been missing japanese mushrooms. The ones i've found here are kind of old and nasty looking. Sad.

You never did make that for me when I was there even though you said you would. I think this means we need to get together soon. Are you coming?
