Broccoli and Bacon

This is a quick and easy lunch that’s very tasty. Take two slices of bacon and slice into one inch pieces. Heat skillet to medium, toss in the bacon slice along with about 2 TBSP of diced onion and some salt and pepper. Let that cook until the onions turn soft. Meanwhile, take two stalks of broccoli and peel the stems. Cut off the florets and slice the stem into 1/4 inch coins. If you peel the stem, it is more tender and does not have a bitter taste. Toss them into the pan with the bacon, add some salt and pepper and put a lid on it, lowering the temp to a low-medium. In five minutes, take the lid off, test for doneness, stir and if necessary, cover and cook a few minutes more. When the broccoli is tender, add the juice from one fresh-squeezed lemon which will offset the bacon fat beautifully. Serve. It has a lovely, fresh flavor and the mix of bacon and lemon is always delicious.
