Pinenut stuffed Dates for #SundaySupper

It is Sunday and you know what that means, right? It is time for another great #SundaySupper event.  This week's theme is April Showers, you know the great American tradition  from Bridal Showers to Baby Showers. I have become familiar with these lovely traditions after leaving Germany and had not known about them before...At a baby shower there are usually fun games, the mom-to-be is "showered" with presents and there is always delicious food.  At bridal showers the soon to be married couple gets "showered" with presents, there are games, and also delicious food.  It is a really lovely tradition.  So, for today's #SundaySupper we are holding a virtual shower with lots and lots of delicious dishes. Our host this week is the lovely Brandie the writer behind Home Cooking Memories.

My dish for the virtual table are Pinenut Stuffed Dates wrapped in Bacon; Dates wrapped in Bacon is great finger food - sweet yet salty at the same time.
