I have two left feet and zero rhythm, so none of this: kevin bacon animated GIF(thanks, Giphy)


I’m thinking maybe this will do nicely, though: Avocado-English Pea Toast with Black Pepper Bacon (Of course¬†there is bacon on Kevin Bacon’s birthday! Cake can be eaten anytime!)



2 ripe avocados, halved and seeded

1/2 pound of English peas, shucked

Fresh lemon juice, to taste

1 Tbsp. olive oil


2 slices of black pepper bacon, cooked   2 slices of of crusty bread


Bring 2 cups of water to a boil and add the shucked peas. Reduce the heat to a simmer and gently cook the peas until they a tender and mashable with a fork. Drain the peas and rinse the peas under cold water until they are cool. Set aside.

Scoop out the avocados and place them in a bowl with the lemon juice, olive oil, and salt and pepper. Mash them up a little, then add the peas and mash them together until you have an evenly mixed but still chunky.


Grill or toast the slices of bread and remove from heat.

Top your toast with the avocado mixture, and top that with the bacon. Eat! Now go watch Footloose, or perhaps Tremors, or Beauty Shop. Or A Few Good Men!
