Bacon, Football, and Turkey

Bacon, Football, and Turkey.  Does it get any better than that?

In the Karkow house, we love some bacon.  If I hear of a recipe that calls for bacon, I have to try it. Which is why I've made a Thanksgiving turkey wrapped in bacon, baked chicken in a yummy bacon coating, and cooked one of our favorites...Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf with Brown Sugar-Ketchup Glaze.  And when I heard bacon is "momsanity approved," I could hardly contain myself.  

When your biggest boy wakes up in the morning asking if there is any leftover meatloaf, it definitely says something.  Well, it might say we are on the cusp of the teenage years, but it also says he enjoyed his dinner the night before.  Jonah is a true carnivore--loves his meat--but this meatloaf was a winner all around.  Everyone enjoyed it.  It has become a meal I take to friends when they have had a baby and one that keeps well and heats well for leftovers.

This turkey was a winner as well.  I just wish he had showed up for the party.  It was a good thing we had a second turkey cooking for the 2013 Turkey Bowl.  For some reason, my fresh turkey seemed to be a bit frozen, resulting in a cooking time twice what it should have been!  My good friend Melissa had signed up for the other turkey, and her's was delicious and on time so we enjoyed her turkey for lunch.  Ours showed up in time for dinner and it did not disappoint.   I had to deliver some of the bacon wrapped meatloaf to my neighbors so they wouldn't miss out on that deliciousness.  I will definitely be making this turkey again this year. And hopefully I'll remember to take an "after picture!"

More to come about these turkeys.  
Our fourth annual Turkey Bowl will be here before we know it!!!
