Celebrating Mapril

candied maple bacon

What is Mapril and why are we celebrating? It's pushing the month of March out the door and getting a jump on April. Why? Because my good blog buddy, Susan of 29 Black Street, gets the blahs at the end of March. Instead of focusing on the last gasps of winter, we're focusing on the joys of Maple. Did I mention Susan is Canadian? Did I mention that occasionally she sends me pure Canadian Maple syrup? I didn't? Did I mention how much I appreciate this? I do especially if you've seen the price of maple syrup lately. In an attempt to cheer Susan up, I made her Candied Maple Bacon. Hopefully I've got some more maple mischief up my sleeve for the rest of Mapril. Feel free to join in and cheer Susan up. By eating more bacon and maple. God Bless America and Canada.

Froggy, I bet Her Majesty would enjoy some Mapril Bacon.

Of course putting up with the inevitable McKenzie Brothers references was always a risk for Susan.

Excellent Melissa.

Happy Mapril EVERYONE!
