Everyone relaxes their eating habits on vacation. Don’t tell me you don’t. It’s just that ‘some of us’ relax them a little more than others, and if those ‘some of us’ that do, have less-than-stellar eating habits to begin with, it can get ugly.
This week our diet has consisted of: Bacon wrapped tater tots. Bacon wrapped cheese-stuffed jalapeño peppers. Bacon Quiche. BLT Sandwiches. Bacon-Topped potatoes au gratin. And Bacon/Turkey club sandwiches. Oh, and doughnuts.
Truly, I don’t know why we are on such a bacon kick. Bacon ain’t cheap, and this vacation diet is killing us financially, not to mention cardiovascularly. I won’t lie to you, the sludge in my arteries definitely smells like pork.
My Captain interrupted his vacation – went home for a couple of days to work one 24 hour shift, and then work another 12 on overtime. Why would anyone interrupt a vacation, you ask? I think he needed a break from the saturated fat and nitrates.
And possibly from me, but we’ll not delve into that.
So I’m sitting here pondering what today’s breakfast ought to be, and I’m out of bacon. There is not so much as a single bacon bit in the fridge.
Thank goodness I have some Milton Sausage hanging around.
And a leftover doughnut.
