Grilled Bacon Guacamole
Do you know how hard it is to not eat the bacon while trying to make this recipe? Real stupid hard. I had to make extra bacon.
Sorry about the picture suckiness. I have kind of sucked at photography lately. That’s probably because, well, I suck at photography. I need to hire someone to do my food photography for me. Someone who doesn’t like making money for their contribution to my website. I’d pay them in food though. And hang out with them. I’m excited for this imaginary person. I think we could have real good time together.
I ate this guac with chili lime grilled sweet potatoes…but you’re gonna have to wait until tomorrow to see that recipe! Jokes on you!
Guess what? I go to Lake Powell soon! Yes I do! It’s a bit worrisome since I have the competition the next weekend after I get back, but I’m trying to press on. I’m not sure what workouts I’ll do there, but I have a feeling it will look a lot like this:
- air squats
- push ups
In some weird way, I really like burpees. I’m not any good at them, but I actually kind of like the pain they cause. It’s crazy how such a simple movement can inflict so much pain onto the body. Bodies are weird. Burpees are weirder.
Wanna see how good I looked on Saturday night? Reaaaaal good. And this was before I was intoxicated. This is the exact reason I didn’t get hit on. #fail. I love hashtags.
I have almost stopped craving sweets completely. It’s pretty rad. Except now I kind of want ice cream. Ah crap.Print
