Oh....She was fashionable. She was smart. She was blonde.
Forget the man part.
She was TALL.
I wanted to be Just.Like.Her.
I really pictured myself that way.
I'm a stay-at-home Mom who clean houses on the side for extra cash. I homeschool my kids. My hair was blonde when I was very young, but it got darker and darker with every year, and now the grey hairs are sprouting. And despite my dreams, I am SHORT.
The worst part is: I can't cook bacon to SAVE MY LIFE!
|Burned it AGAIN!|
It is common knowledge in my house. Mom can't cook bacon. Sometimes, I am banned. I am not allowed to even try. We don't buy bacon very often, but I do like to treat my husband to a couple of pieces in the morning for breakfast every once in awhile. So, if my bacon-cooking daughter isn't awake, I do it myself. It is usually raw or burned by the time it hits the plate.
After another failed attempt this morning, I got an idea. I need some bacon advice. What am I doing wrong? I don't like pan frying it because it makes a mess so I usually do it in the microwave. I've heard that you can cook it in the oven, but wouldn't that throw bacon grease all over the oven? And what if I only need to cook 2-3 pieces, not the whole pack? I need help!
So, I'm planning a Bacon Round-Up. I would like to find, and post, photos of and tips for making the PERFECT bacon.
Do you have a post about cooking bacon? Would you share it with me?
Do you have a tip or any easy "how to", but you don't blog?
If so, leave me a comment (with a link) here or on my facebook page.
Let's take it one step further! What about your bacon recipes? I'd like to include a round up of those also.
I'll be looking around over the next few days and I will also be trying what I read about. If you share your posts/photos, I'll be sure to link back and give you credit. So come on, let's make some bacon!
Please note: If you share your link, you are giving me permission to share your link and your photo on facebook and on pinterest. I'll be sure to give credit and link back!
Important Update: I CAN cook bacon now! Read about it here.
