More Bacon = Success

More Bacon = Success

As we progress in age during life, it seems we strive to do things that would be impossible to achieve even in our youth. We sign up for aerobic classes where we jump up and down in sync to the latest music, which really isn't music.  We promise to learn to speak pig...

Honey and Bacon Grease

Honey and Bacon Grease

Honey is akin to bee snot, regurgitated bee spit, or bee beer.  It’s also a good sugar substitute.  Isn’t it amazing how we describe essential ingredients in the modern kitchen.  The common ingredient of honey either devolves and evolves as we choose to use it, and...

Fruitcake For Everybody!

Fruitcake For Everybody!

My unintended task - which I started on a whim and doesn't exactly involve fruitcake - is to write at least 500 words a day on any subject for 32 days straight.   This is somewhat like the photographers challenge of taking a photograph every day for 365 days.   Today...
