If I Lived in a Loft

I hope my front door would look something like this:

My friends and I would hang out at this corner:

The bedroom, tucked upstairs, will be a secret hideout:

Perhaps I'd sip wine while taking in the view here:

(Figs) Dates Wrapped In Bacon



Want to hear something funny? When we bought the box of dates at Trader Joe's I thought we were buying figs fully intending to wrap them in bacon and bake them. I even served them to my friend Jenny and told them they were figs. What was I thinking? She was too polite to correct me, I'm sure.

Anyway I cut the bacon in half, wrapped them around each date and baked them for 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees. Instant delicious hors d'ouvres.

Even though they are dates instead of figs. It works even without the blue cheese.
