Labor Day

We have a very laid-back day yesterday!

We slept-in until about 8:30 which was glorious! I feel like 8:30 is the new noon when you are a parent of small children! :)Jillian woke-up around 7:30, nursed, and then went back to bed, so we were able to go back to sleep for a little while.  When we woke-up it felt fantastic outside…like fall decided to arrive overnight! Since it was so nice, we planned a little lunch picnic/play date at the park with some friends.

Marci texted me while we were at the park and asked if we wanted to come over for s’mores later that evening. I love s’mores and never turn down an opportunity to eat them, especially when we get to spend the evening with some of our favorite friends!

This cutie could not hide the fact that she had been in the chocolate!

Our friends, Mike and Jill, were there as well. Mike has a deep love for bacon. I’m not joking when I tell you that the man loves some bacon! They brought bacon to the s’mores party so that we could make s’macons, which is a s’more with bacon! I’m all about trying new things, and I love salty/sweet combo, so I gave it a try!

It was really good! It was a great salty/sweet combo! Have you all had bacon with something sweet? I have recently seen several things online about chocolate dipped bacon! I would have never put the 2 together, but it really is good!

I hope you all had a great long weekend!

I love to lay bacon across my pancakes or waffles with syrup and then cut it all up and eat it together! So good!!!

Sounds like you had a really nice, relaxing Labor Day.

Those s'macons actually sound kind of good. I might have to them them :)

Thanks for sharing!

Yum! I have been into bacon lately. I've tried a peanut butter and bacon sandwich (ok, turkey bacon, definitely not as good, but my waistline probably loved me a little more for it) and I am dying to make a maple and bacon cake I've been hearing about.
Fall decided to show up in my part of the south THIS morning. I LOVE it!

I love smores & I love bacon but have NEVER thought of the two together!!!

I've also heard of chocolate covered bacon recently. But they were talking about the bacon not being crispy. I think it might taste good with crispy bacon. Something to try anyway!

Kristin said...

YUM Smores! Not sure about trying it with bacon.....but I guess everything is better with bacon right?! ;)
