Bon appetit

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts

Hey Y'all,
Think about this, My friends and readers...
Sometime in the grand scale of things, The great Creator allows a thought to creep into your mind, no matter how dense your mind may be, it somehow gets in there and rolls around pestering you... you just can't shake it out no matter what you do. It's sorta like a tune embedded in your mind and you catch yourself constantly humming the tune all day long. Some times you are haunted for days or even weeks, until you succumb to it and write it, or cook it, or play the music yourself. Then as quick as it appeared to you... "poof" ... it's gone, leaving only the memory, Good or Bad, then you file it to the experience file, to revisit it sometime later... or maybe never! That's not the point, who cares, right?

I am bad about getting these messages in the form of exotic recipes (not erotic, mind you). I have found some great recipes that way, but truthfully I have gaged on some of them too.

My best friend, who happens to be with the Kingston Trio, George Grove absolutely loves my flat bread concoction and he and his wife serves it often to guests when they visit.

Here is one that invaded my mind yesterday. It will persists there until I do it... A recipe ... Yep, just the mindset of a twisted hungry "Fatso" perhaps ... But 'ere 'tis mate!

Bacon wrapped water chestnuts with almond slices
Marinate the whole water chestnuts in Terriyaki sauce with Garlic and butter for 30 min.
Wrap Hickory smoked Bacon around the water chestnuts and include the thinly sliced Almonds. The bacon can be tightly wrapped and held together with a toothpick. Fry in double virgin (sounds better than just a single virgin), Olive oil. Fry to crisp or to your liking.
Serve with a salsa dip or dip into Terriyaki... (If you like cheese, then perhaps you might overlay some provolone after cooking while it is hot.

This sounds like a great appitiser don't you think? I shutter to think about the caloric factor though...

Hey Let me know what you think.
