So we're having a potluck here today in the building and decided to do a "Bacon" theme. Works for me!! I have an incredible recipe for homemade mac/cheese (I'd tell you what's in it but you'd have a heart attack just reading the ingredients) and upgraded it with bacon. Turned out amazing-there will be NO leftovers.
But, of course, I needed to go grocery shopping for the ingredients before I cooked last night. And I was hungry. Yeah...going to the store when you're hungry, well, EVERYTHING started sounding good. Including chocolate chip cookies. Wait...chocolate chip cookies AND BACON!! Yep, I made them and they turned out GREAT. You've got the sweet of the cookie and then the salt of the bacon...good gracious!! And yes, I cooked the bacon first and then mixed it in the cookie dough before baking. Will definitely make this again. It was also suggested for the bacon potluck that people just make bacon, strips of bacon, cut into 3 or 4 inch pieces and then we could have dipping sauces for the bacon. Don't get me started!!
On a separate note, I will be going back to the gym. Next week:) Have a great one-Jennifer
