Bacon, Cucumber, and Tomato Salad

So I woke up this morning and all I was thinking about was that I wanted bacon for breakfast! Not sure what I was going to make it with but I haven't had crispy bacon in ages. As usual, Lou opted for the bacon and egg sandwich but for me... I wasn't really craving egg. I thought... "hhmm.. maybe I'll have a BLT". Uh.. no. No salad in the house. So, I looked at what was in the fridge and I thought.. "I know, I'll have a bacon, cucumber, and tomato salad!".

I've never made it before or tried it before but I thought that I'd try it anyway. I have to say... I liked it. It was fresh, simple, with a touch of salt from the crispy bacon. And when I say crispy... I LOVE my bacon crispy to the point where you can hear it snap when you break it in half.

Here's the recipe. You can choose how much of the ingredients you want but this is what I used for 1 serving.

1 vine ripened tomato sliced
1/2 cup of sliced cucumber
thinly sliced onion (I wanted to use red onion but didn't have any). I don't like loads of onions in my salad so I literally only used about 7 thin slices for my salad.
5 pieces of bacon cooked til crispy.. REALLY CRISPY!
1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano
extra virgin olive oil
juice of 1 lemon slice

- Mix the tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, and bacon in a bowl.
- Drizzle extra virgin olive oil to your liking.
- Add the dried oregano and lemon juice and mix all of the ingredients together and serve!

I know this isn't a food related blog entry, however, I think that saving our earth is extremely important.

Countries all over the world are participating in conserving energy for 1 hour. It started in Sydney, Australia and is spreading around the world. On Saturday, March 29, 2008, hundreds of thousands of people around the world are going to shut off all of their lights from 8pm to 9pm.

Angel Baby

I was honoured and extremely happy to have been asked to take photos for my long time friend Ellen Fargas' organic baby food business. During the shoot I was so tempted to try some but didn't want to ruin the shoot with traces of my finger having been dipped into the food. Lucky Zach Attack gets to eat his mom's beautiful creation all day long.

It's amazing to me how organic food is just sweeping the world with so many more options of food and flavour. The organic food business is exploding and I truly believe that anyone in it, will be successful.
