Pastured Pork

Ham and Egg Scramble

Ham and Egg Scramble

For those of you who celebrated, I hope you had an enjoyable Easter yesterday. We drove down to York to spend time with Camille's family. It was a beautiful day in southern Maine and I was particularly happy to spend time outdoors and even sneak in a seaweed harvest at the beach.  My mother-in-law cooked up a delicious smoked pork shoulder, not quite a ham, but close enough. ;) I'm pretty sure I could eat ham every day, as it is just so darn flavorful.

Bacon Wrapped Dates

Bacon Wrapped Dates

Not much explaining to do here. This easy recipe is straight forward and damn good tasting. Sweet and savory collide for an unusually great pairing of bacon and dates. As the dates heat up they ooze with caramel flavor. While the bacon crisps up, it oozes with salty-smokey flavor.
