Just as well DL.... seems to me that bacon is never going to arrive.... mind you, you've heard the saying "a watched kettle never boils"? Maybe if you stop watching the mailbox the bacon will miraculously appear!

I love love love green beans with bacon. I made some with cornbread tonight. Also made some green peppers stuffed with a beef mixture and corn with mashed potatoes.

I might try that next time, but chopped, definitely small pieces

Or use as a pizza topping.
You inspired me to make a fried rice with kielbasa slices. It wasn't bad, but that kielbasa was awfully chewy. Cubes next time.

Sorry, Taxy! I was thinking of the kielbasa like the pepperoni slices that I fried the heck out of, they crumbled like crunchy bacon! Hope your dish was good otherwise!

Guess I won't post this recipe!

Maybe it would be better in a stew? (It would add great flavour and would soften.)

It smelled really good too. It was a decent meal, but nothing to write home about.

Isn't that disappointing? When it smells better than it looks? I mostly cook for me and my brother, and he is very sweet. I am the one who "critiques" my cooking. And I am very hard on myself.

Your dish looked good TL and I bet it was nicer than you give yourself credit for!
