In my original post I mentioned American Horror Story and had to go back and look what season I was watching in 2014. It appears that it would have been Freak Show with Twisty the Clown…of the nightmares… I still really enjoy that show, but have not watched Apocalypse yet. I have a few saved on my DVR, and am going to try and sneak them in during an afternoon when Rowan is napping, and Ron and Kellen go fishing. I really enjoy the apocalypse genre like Walking Dead, 28 Days Later, and other movies/shows with horrific situations for the human race….so I am sure that this will be another season to enjoy. I was not a big fan of Asylum, but I know that is a favorite for many people. I wonder if maybe I just didn’t “get it”? Or maybe everyone else has poor taste in their American Horror Story preferences….one will never know. I know Murder House is a favorite, and I enjoyed it, but I really liked the true terror of Roanoke. The first few episodes legitimately scared me. And I liked it.

Bacon Pierogi Bake
- 32 oz package frozen potato and onion pierogi, (these are normally sold in 16 oz packages and you will buy two)
- 12 slices bacon
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 6 oz plain cream cheese, cut into cubes
- 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
- 1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
- 2/3 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
- 1 tsp black pepper
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Lightly spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray and arrange the frozen pierogi in a single layer. You may have some overlap and that is just fine.
- Slice the bacon into 1/2-3/4 inch pieces. In a rimmed skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Leaving dripping in the pan, transfer to a plate, and set aside.
- Add garlic to drippings in pan, and cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add cream cheese to pan, whisk and cook for 1 minute or until cream cheese begins to melt. Add the chicken broth and pepper to pan and whisk until smooth.
- Pour the cream cheese mixture evenly over pierogis. Top with cheese and then the bacon.
- Bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and top with tomatoes and green onions. Serve immediately.
