"I shall content myself with merely declaring my firm conviction that, for the seeker who would live in fear of God and who would see Him face to face, restraint in diet both as to quantity and quality is as essential as restraint in thought and speech." -Mahatma Gandhi

The picture does not do it justice, but this is Dave's new favorite meal. He keeps asking me to make it! Everyone knows that guys LOVE bacon, so it's a good way to get him to eat spinach too. It's so filling and so incredibly good, you'll wish you had another stomach to eat more!

By-the-way, I serve it with rice made with either chicken broth or two boullion cubes. I also serve it with either steamed broccoli or steamed asparagas (with melted butter all over, of course!)
