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.
