Last post I introduced the New Food Challenge #6: Figs. So here is the first thing I tried with them. Super super simple and easy. Except it didn't turn out....perfect. The figs weren't ripe enough, I cut them too far down so they starred out, and I think I over cooked them because they were a bit mushy....*sigh*
But like I mentioned last post, these babies are not uber cheap, therefore I wasn't about to throw them out and start over. I was gunna eat them anyways. And guess what? I liked them. A lot. I thought it tasted delicious. So I am going to write about it and correct the mistakes. Because in my opinion... this will impress the PANTS off of anyone you serve this too! SO THERE.

It is fig season! Yay! Well fresh fig season. You can find dried figs everywhere and anywhere. We are talking about the fresh, plump, juicy fruit (not the gum).
Did you know that a fig has multiple flowers growing inside of it? And SOME please believe that the fig was actually the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden - not the apple. WHO KNEW?

It's April. Which is the end of the semester. Which means papers, assignments and final exams. Which means a lot of late nights and even more coffee.
Since it is just the beginning, I am trying to make sure I start the month off right by actually eating some veggies. Not sure how long it will last... but hey... at least I am trying right?
Well I am mac and cheese yesterday. But no one has to know about that really.

Cauliflower is... well kinda boring. Sorry but it is.
Baconfy you ask? Yes, baconfy - the art of adding bacon to something to make it exponentially better.
Not only did bacon make this soup taste better, it changed the colour...to a less desirable colour. But don't think about that! Think about the fact that there is bacon in it! Problem solved.
And really, when you consider how much bacon per seving is used in this recipe, it is actually extremely healthy. I mean it is literally just pureed veggies. So eat, guilt free (my fave way to eat)
