Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet until crispy. Drain on paper towels and crumble finely. Pour fat from skillet into measuring cup. If you do not have 1/4 cup of fat, add vegetable oil until you have a 1/4 cup. Set the skillet aside.
Pour the fat into a stockpot over medium heat. Add the popcorn kernels and give a shake to coat in oil. Cover the pot and allow popcorn to pop, shaking frequently until the popcorn has almost stopped popping, about 5 minutes. Remove pot from heat and cover.
In the bacon skillet, melt the butter and maple syrup over medium-low heat. Stir in the crumbled bacon.
Pour syrup and bacon mixture over the popcorn. Toss well to coat all of the popcorn. Add a little salt and serve immediately.

When cooking carrots and broccoli, add a tbsp of water to help cook thoroughly.
In a sealable plastic bag, mix garlic, thyme, rosemary, lemon zest and juice, half (1/4 c.) of the olive oil, and salt and pepper. Add both tenderloins. Squeeze the air out of the bag and seal. Let marinate in the fridge for at least one hour.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Remove tenderloins from bag and season both sides with salt and pepper.
Heat a large oven-safe pan on medium-high heat. Add the remaining olive oil to the pan. Sear each side of the loins until each side is browned.
Remove tenderloins from pan and add apple wedges. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the apples have browned.
Add the tenderloins on top of the apples and place the pan in the oven. Roast for 12-15 or until the internal temperature of the tenderloins is 140-150 degrees F.
Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes before cutting.
