What is a mom to do? *wink~wink*

So...I am fixing dinner for my littles and I when I realize....I am down to my last teaspoon of olive oil.  Hum.  I need olive oil. How on earth did I run out of it?  Well....whatever.  Fact remains....there is not enough.

I had already cleaned and cut my red potatoes into wedges and gotten them ready to toss with Parmesan cheese, sea salt, rosemary and *olive oil*.  My chicken breasts were ready to be sauteed with *olive oil* and garlic.  The potatoes really need the olive oil to get the coating to they got the last dribbles.  Now....what to do about the chicken?  Yeah...I could have baked them...but that is not so great...they always wind up dry.  So...I peeked into my fridge thinking I would use applesauce and just have a sweet chicken.  A little apple cider vinegar thrown in would have tempered the sweet and been quite tasty!  But...oops...I spied bacon.  Oh...bacon has fat, right?  That would keep my chicken from sticking in the pan and even fry it a little bit.  Hum...would it work?  What the hell!  I tried it.  ;)  I had three three slices of bacon, right?  **evil laugh**
My kitchen smelled wonderfully.  I mean, let's face it.  Bacon=Meat Candy.  Bacon makes everything better.  I am sure that I threw the nutritional benefits of breast meat poultry out the window...but, was YUMMY!  E and B begged for more.  And the peas they usually eat very quickly were *inhaled* when they found the tiny bits of freshly fried bacon mixed in.  ;) 

Dinner was a success and saved by meat candy.  :)  And, no pictures.  I am so not Ree.  ;)
