National Flitch Day

I didn't know what Flitch Day was until just the other day when I had to look it up, and I have to say I was a little surprised by what I found...

Flitch Day recognizes the custom of awarding a "flitch" of bacon (the side cut of the pig) to married couples who make it through their first year and a day with no regrets. 
This tradition started in 15th century England and is still carried on in some towns today. 

My husband and I are coming up on our 10th wedding anniversary, so does that mean we get 10 flitches of bacon? Nice!

My cake pop for today is bacon sprinkled over white chocolate. Bacon and chocolate might make for a curious pairing, but I tell you that I think I've died and gone to heaven!

So, here's to all of you newlyweds out there, try a "flitch" cake pop and enjoy many years of happiness to come!

    Learn something new every day :)
