So after almost a week of jamming cheese and processed meat into my digestive system I decided to go light for Day 6. I needed to work in a little fiber to keep things moving along. So I started with Swiss, Avocado, raw red pepper, on wheat bread. It doesn't get any more healthier than that, right?
I turned around to butter my other piece of bread and all of a sudden I was overcome by the bewitching aroma of the greatest gift a pig could give: Bacon! I turned back around and there was Bacon on my healthy, colon clearing, vegetarian sandwich! At first I was alarmed, then I realized I had been blessed by the Bacon Fairy on this Good Friday. I remember from my extensive Bible study that before the Heavenly Father brought his son home he sent The Bacon Fairy as a final temptation to Jesus. When the Lord rebuffed the offering God knew it was time. Since then the Bacon Fairy has been on a mission to bless those in their time of need with her cured gift.*
So I didn't protest. It was obviously meant to be. Who was I to argue with Divine Bacon Intervention(DBI)? So I placed another slice of Swiss over it and grilled away. Bacon and Avocado are a natural combo but the red pepper added a tart sweetness that broke it up. Went great with my Sam Adams Summer Ale too.
Thanks for the suggestions and all the intrepid gamblers wagering on me to make all 30 days of this challenge. Please leave your ideas and comments in the section below.
