It's bacon time.

The snack of choice this weekend was bacon-wrapped water chestnuts. This is another recipe I've helped my family make so many times it's basically burned into my brain. They make excellent appetizers, but don't go pre-making them the night before a party; they're addictive and you WILL eat them.

Water chestnuts are not really chestnuts at all, but are actually an aquatic vegetable that grows in marshes, under the mud. They have a sweet, crunchy texture that I normally enjoy in stir-fry, but also make an awesome snack.

Not to mention, a fellow blogger has been asking for some bacon-related recipes, probably to wash down with some crazy new beer. Well, here you go.
