Low Carb Bacon Thyme Cauliflower Rice. I just kinda threw this together on a Sunday afternoon and it was so good I decided to post it. You can see from the ingredients picture how simple it is. I was originally going to use that olive oil along with the bacon grease but since I had some duck fat left over from a duck breast I did the other day, I used it instead. Sometimes just a little of this and a little of that gives you something really good to eat. Try it sometime. It can be rewarding and fun.
