Class is NOT dismissed yet, you guys.
One more completely gluttonous thing before you move on… I thought I told you to bring elastic waistband pants. I swore I put it on the syllabus.
Anyway. Here is the reason I made the bacon jam in the first place:
I had a sandwich once, you see. I never forgot it, many moons later, and I loved it so. It was a chicken and waffles sandwich from Yosh’s, which all of you Renoites must–simply must–check out if you haven’t already. Thank baby Jesus that this was a special and not a regular menu item, because otherwise, I legit might be dead or on my third heart transplant or whatever.
Let’s just say it made an impression. Perfectly crispy, breaded chicken, between two delicious, pillowy waffles, plus a healthy dose of maple syrup and jalapeno/bacon jam. Or it might have been chipotle/bacon jam. I’m not sure, to be perfectly honest, but it was out of this world, all wrapped up to go in foil and consumed after a long workday on my couch. At least a year ago. From my belly, it crawled up into my brain and would not leave–until I made it myself. So here we are.
So, let’s talk about getting old and all. I was gonna make a whole list of things I’m too old to do (with the point being that I’m not too old for sloppy joes… Especially grown-up ones with spice, beer flavor, pretzel rolls and an awesome, flavorful slaw). Then I remembered reading A Thing On The Internet which has already done it for me. Specifically, it’s a list of 30 things women should stop doing when they turn 30. I’m cruising right along in the mid-20s, so I might as well check it out and see how I measure up.
1. Buying clothes from the junior section. I guess I have 4+ years to stop, but I’m not sure if I want to. Ask me again as I approach 40.
2. Forgetting her parents’ birthdays. That’s never been a problem. I remember things like a legit creep.
3. Making out with her BFFs at bars for attention. Never have I done this. Tacky!
4. Making out with her boyfriend at bars for attention. Ditto, but maybe this could go on my “things to start doing at 80″ list.
5. Filling her bed with stuffed animals (really, even one is too many). I can barely keep my pillows in order. There are 4.

The shorter title for this recipe is the Face of God, if you prefer. Because I’m sure it would look exactly like this.
Hi! I apologize for being blasphemous and weird. I came out of my mom’s belly just like this and here I am, writing about sandwiches on the internet.
But, if you give me a few minutes, I can tell you about a genius combination of ingredients for your next picnic. It’s sweet, savory, pretty, and FANCYpants. The appearance of these sandwiches is deliberate and dainty, but we all know that a sandwich with bacon on it would punch someone in the face if it had to.
