This Wednesday my team’s weekly APA 8 Ball match was an “away game,” so I headed over to Lucky Shot Billiards in Sunnyvale, CA. When I got to Murphy Street, I discovered a music festival was just starting up, and the street was filled with folks getting ready for the festivities. The road was blocked off and there were several street vendors selling various goods and snacks. I ignored most of them…they were merely a nuisance…an impediment standing between me and my pool night…when suddenly I smelled bacon. Hot fresh bacon! Whooahhhh! Time out! I followed my nose and ended up here:
A street vendor named “Bacon on a Stick.” Wohoo! They were offering bacon wrapped dates and bacon wrapped water chestnuts. Sweet and savory. Of course, I went for the sweet. I placed an order for the bacon wrapped dates and devoured them quickly. Yummy! I needed some real food for dinner, so I walked down the street for a little grilled salmon and spinach, but quickly returned for dessert. Yep, you guessed it: more bacon wrapped dates!
Is it just me, or does everything taste better with bacon? Bacon wrapped prawns, bacon wrapped dates, bacon wrapped tire tread, bacon wrapped concrete slab…all good. Too bad my cholesterol is already a little high, or I’d eat bacon for every meal. Take a look at these delectable little treats…like manna from heaven!
I’ve been a little remise in my pool postings lately. I have a list of over a dozen pool related things I want to write about, but I’ve just been too busy lately to force myself to sit down and write. Hopefully, this post will get me going again. And now, what’s for dinner tonight…? 😉
