Bacon....It's BACON!

Last week I had the pleasure to head to Sam's Club to pick up some Wright Brand Bacon to use in recipes for a #MealsTogether BACON party! Of course I could not pass that up!
 I loaded the girls up and headed to our local Sam's.  The girls get along so well, sometimes.  Luckily the day we went shopping was one of those days!

We searched through Sam's as I had seen the bacon we were after a few weeks ago. Only this time, it was not in the spot it was in last time.
They moved the Wright Brand Bacon over to the premium deli area of the store.
I decided to get both the Applewood and the Brown Sugar flavored bacon.  I had not tried the Brown Sugar bacon yet and was very excited about it!  It did not disappoint!

We had our bacon party over the weekend.  I love having my friends over for meals together. My MIL and two of my friends came over to party with us.
I have the cutest friends!  Natasha is holding a Maple Bacon Cupcake {recipe below}.

We had such a good time sampling all of the goodies my hubby and I made.
I made Chocolate Chip Cookies with Bacon!
 Hubby smoked a Bacon Explosion. Oh my gosh!  It was AMAZING!
I made some Bacon Cheddar Pinwheels.
As mentioned above, I also made my Maple Bacon Cupcakes.  YUM!

1 tsp Maple Extract
3-6 Tbs Milk
Wright Brand Brown Sugar Bacon for Garnish - Cooked crisp and chopped

1) Place Butter in bowl of stand mixer and mix until creamy
2) Turn mixer down and begin adding Confectioners Sugar one cup at a time, allow to incorporate between each addition.

4) Add Milk one Tbs at a time until you get the consistency you desire.
5) Place in piping bag {or zip-top bag with a corner snipped off} and pipe onto cupcakes.
6) Garnish by sprinkling bacon on top.

**Note: For my party I used light margarine in place of butter for the frosting, it tasted great but the consistency was off a bit.

We had a LOT of cupcakes left over so I ended up taking them to my Women's Meeting at church, they were a HUGE hit! Everyone is always so surprised at just how great they are.  They taste just like pancakes and bacon!
Even the kids had a GREAT time!

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her.
Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good! I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags.

For Such a Time as This

You know when you find a group of friends and you just sit back in amazement when you think of just how awesome they are? I am SO lucky to have a group like that in my life. I am even luckier to have this group in my girls' lives.  It is so very important to me for my girls to see the relationships I have with these women. The way we interact and love each other. It is important they see that even though each one of these women are very, very different, we still come together in love and laughter. It is also important to me that my girls see the relationships that these wonderful women have with their families. I am lucky enough to be close friends with two AMAZING families. We do things together, as families, we also do things together just the moms and kids. I love that my girls see these strong families and know that these families are there for them should they ever need them. In the times that we l…
