Breakfast using Our Dehydrated Vegetables and Cured Bacon
My husband decided to cook a delicious smelling breakfast on this rainy Saturday morning using some of our dehydrated vegetables along with the bacon we processed ourselves. This was the more fatty part of the bacon that we left in chunks to add as flavoring in other dishes; however, it's also one of my husband's favorite parts.
He started with chopped onions in a pan with a bit of butter. Then he combined the bacon, along with a few of our dehydrated vegetables from last summer: celery, green and red peppers plus tomatoes. He added garlic and tequila. I know, that came as a surprise to me as well but the balsamic vinegar had congealed and he wanted to flavor his dish up a little. The alcohol cooks out anyway.
Here is a shot of the bacon mixture as he was cooking it. He likes his vegetables al dente. I'd love to give a review of the meal but I could not sample the end product since I appear to be suffering from some mild diverticulitis pain, probably from choosing soda over my normal water last week.
I linger over a single soda for hours so my liquid intake would have been drastically reduced. When will I learn? He thought the dish was pretty tasty so I will have to take his word for it. My coffee and yogurt were also delicious but I need to make a permanent change and get that kefir recipe out!
Happy Saturday and bon appetit.
