BLT Stuffed Tomatoes and a Chocobacon Fest

This past weekend my friends and I had a Chocobacon Fest.

I will pause now so that you can catch your breath. Yes, you are still alive. No, you have not died and gone to Bacon heaven. Yes, it really was that good.

Our menu included BLT stuffed tomatoes, bacon wrapped shrimp, bacon wrapped dates stuffed with almonds or chocolate, zucchini and squash sautéed in bacon grease, pomegranate sangria (ok, no bacon or chocolate there), maple chocolate pudding with bacon spoons, and chocolate covered brown sugar bacon.

Recipes for pudding and chocolate covered bacon will be posted later this week…once I pick myself up off of the floor from my Chocobacon induced coma.
