Pea Meal Bacon Dinner

Every home cook has a meal that they turn to as a quick comfort meal.  For me that tends to be a meal based on pea meal bacon for the meat.  I cure a piece of pork loin once a month or more for pea meal bacon.  This home cured meat is perfect for pan frying when sliced or can be cooked as a roast in the oven.  It is a quick, easy to prepare and low fat meat sure to please.

The weather is now rather cold so a little extra heat in the house from cooking is very much appreciated.  A little comfort food is also very much appreciated.  The real beauty of comfort foods is they aren't  labour intensive to prepare.

I cooked the pea meal bacon roast in the oven along with the potatoes.   Steamed carrots and   home canned cream style corn rounded out the meal.  The steamed carrots were a real bargain.  One of the local grocery stores had 10 lb bags of carrots, beets and onions on sale for $2 each.  Well you just know I had to buy a bag of each at that price!  Cream style corn is really nice spooned over baked potatoes as a topping anytime but especially more so on a cold winter's evening. It was a nice comfort meal to enjoy watching the wind whip white caps over the water's surface.
