It is that time of year again. Harvesting greens and onion.
I have heard this called roadkill greens or wilted greens.
I always called it scalded greens.
Big bowl mixed leaf lettuce and baby kale mixed
Lots of green spring onion, tops included, chopped
3 tablespoons bacon grease
4 tablespoons vinegar
5 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup water
Simply heat all dressing ingredients. Pour dressing, while warm, over the large bowl of greens and onion. Mix well. The greens will wilt. Serve immediately.

Oh my goodness! I had been wanting to try this potato salad ever since I saw it on Peas and Crayons .
I wish I hadn’t waited so long. Sriracha and bacon on a spud? Really?
I did substitute chives and a few chopped white onion for the spring onions, since ours are not harvest ready yet. I will have a ball once our onions are ready.
You will have to click the link for the recipe and their inspirational pictures that forced me to go back and do a search to try it.
Q: What do Italians eat on halloween?
A: Fetuccini A-fraid-o

Ha, that is sooo corny and I love it.
There is nothing easier than spaghetti carbonara. Carbonara is normally 4 great ingredients with black pepper. Pasta, pancetta, egg and parmesan cheese.
I kicked this one up a bit with some garlic, basil, white wine and chives to garnish.
Bacon has also come to be “the ingredient” since it is usually what I have on hand. I also love fettucini. I think originally this dish used penne pasta, but I’m not Italian so what do I know.
1 garlic clove, minced
10 slices bacon chopped
3/4 cup white wine
1 tablespoon fresh chopped basil
1⁄2 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
Salt and pepper to taste
10 ounces fettuccine pasta cooked al dente
Chives to garnish
In a large pot fry chopped bacon to crisp. Drain the grease and then add the wine to deglaze the pan. Add your garlic and basil, salt and pepper.
In a separate bowl beat your eggs and add your parmesan cheese.
Combine your cooked pasta in the pan with the bacon and while still hot begin pouring the egg and cheese over the pasta and bacon, stirring well as you pour. The egg mixture will thicken into a sauce as you stir the hot mixture.
Garnish with chives.
