Good News!

First of all I just want to let you guys know who read this that I appreciate your support especially this past month. I am happy to announce all has turned out well for me and I have been offered a new position in the company that involves International work in Canada and the Caribbean! Same job, just new territories with exciting travel. I can’t tell you how excited I am about this. Technically it’s a lateral move but I feel it’s a promotion and it’s a direction I have always sought to go in. So I can take a deep breath now and get on with it.



To celebrate with a little snack before my Certain Someone comes home with celebratory take out, I made these little tasty snacks. Dates wrapped in bacon. No recipe needed. Just wrap your dates in bacon and secure. Bake on a high temp on a broiler pan to allow the fat to drain. Enjoy.

Wheee! I'm first! Congratulations! That's very good news and I'm really happy it worked out for you!

And I had no idea bacon wrapped dates were so easy. I had them for the first time at a tapas place Cafe Baborebop (or something like that) in Lincoln Park. Thanks for sharing how to make them!

You go girl! :)

Heather said...

Gratz, woman! Those lil' appies look hell of tasty. Mama likey. OOh, I want to stuff goat cheese inside the dates. They weren't fattening enough before. :P

Peter M said...

In Canada eh? Look me up when in Toronto.

As for your apps...PHEW...I thought they were going to be bacon-wrapped chicken livers. Heather would still eat'em!

linda said...

Oh those look so good and I am with Peter on the chicken liver things. The dates look much better and I might follow heather's idea and fill 'em with goat cheese!!!

Congrats!! I'm so glad that everything worked out. :)

Dates + Bacon is a combo I've never heard of but I bet it tastes delicious. I've seen a lot of bacon/sweets entries around the blogosphere lately that are making me rethink my perceptions of pork.

Enjoy the food with the German boyfriend.
