bacon wrapped dates

One of my favorite restaurants in Las Vegas {Firefly} for hanging with friends  serves this amazing dish of bacon wrapped dates with a red wine reduction and blue cheese. Can you say O-M-G!

The drive is about 20 minutes to get there and this lazy butt hates to drive so  I will make this dish at home when I feel the craving coming.

We don’t drink a lot of red wine and it collects dust in our home waiting for someone to drink it. And the dust builds… until I decide to make some sauces! And no, I don’t drink while I cook because I don’t drink wine. But I MIGHT have a nip {or two} when I make my vodka pie crust!

This is a basic red wine reduction recipe — no matter which cooking site you view they are all fairly the same with a few variations {some will have you add thyme or rosemary at the end}.
