I wonder if it's smoked bacon.
Our kitchen is still not fininshed and we have no mains water, no sink and no washing machine. It's driving me nuts. Becasue of the lack of washing up facilities I'm trying not to used pans (which are too big to wash in the handbasin in the bathroom) and do things in the oven. Tonight we had lemon sole goujons with frites and bread and butter pudding.
