This is a simple recipe that I made up from watching several cooking programs on the Food Channel and PBS. Full disclosure, I watch them all the time to get cooking information and ideas. The famous chef, Jacque Pepin assembled a PLT on his PBS program with aioli as a spread on the bread. On her cooking program, The Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten assembled a BLT with avocado. However, I will use avocado guacamole in this recipe.   You ask yourself what is the P in the PLT. It’s prosciutto, of course. Prosciutto is a thinly sliced, dry-cured ham from Italy. It’s also called Parma ham. When prosciutto is served uncooked it is called prosciutto crudo. Prosciutto that has been cooked is called prosciutto cotto. I will be using prosciutto cotto in this recipe. When cooked, the prosciutto tastes a lot like country ham. Delicious!

  Recent news has shocked the world of pork lovers, as well as the members and fans of, regarding a new trend in pig feeding. According to a local longtime vendor at Seattle's Pike Place market known as Bucking Boars Ranch has started to sell meat from pigs that have been plumped with marijuana plants.   The explanation coming from Bucking Boars Ranch explained that since pot is legal in Washington State, medicinal marijuana farmers don’t know what to do with the parts of marijuana that aren’t good for pot. Hence, the pork purveyor has come up with the idea to start feeding their hogs on pot: “It turns out that all those useless stems, root bulbs and oversized leaves are great feed for pigs”.
  I have heard of many interesting ideas for wedding themes, but the latest one has blown my mind. It is original, funny, cute and it really shows love-mostly love for bacon. That’s right, newest inspiration for your wedding comes straight from San Diego where couple got married and celebrated their love for each other and for bacon as well.   The wedding had it all. The carpet on the wedding was done in bacon print which honestly looks amazing. You know that tradition to throw rice on the bride and groom? Well; it has changed, at least for the bacon themed weddings, because people were throwing bacon bits. Cake was inspired by bacon as well. Instead of the colorful sprinkles on top of the cake, there was… Guess what? That’s right, bacon sprinkles.
