Canning bacon ends and pieces.

Did you know that according to the USDA you should use bacon within 7 days even if you are refrigerating it? I know I keep it around much longer than that. Do you? What if you only need a little bit of bacon? Enough for maybe a thick coating of four cheese burgers or some potato and leek soup, which is what we had tonight.

Walmart has bacon ends and pieces for $4 for two pounds. Two dollars a pound for meat is my magic number for canning. If I can get meat that cheap I look for options to can it for later use. You can can it up in a pressure canner with minimal work. When you need some bacon pull it off the shelf and fry it up. It will not work as bacon strips but is great for any application that uses small bits of bacon like salads, soup toppings, burgers and what-nots. 

Here is how to do it:

A friend posted that they had a dream about graham cracker taco shells filled with strawberries, whipped cream and chocolate syrup. My first though was "I know exactly how to pull that off, and do it from from scratch!" My second thought was "Now I have to wait until strawberries are in season!"

I'm having website issues so this took longer to post than to make this dessert but I finally have it up. Click the link to see how to make this tasty treat now that strawberries are coming into season.

There is a warning about how much habanero sriracha to one should put in the pizza sauce in the article.

I woke up not knowing what to do with myself for a few hours. Decided to make some cinnamon rolls. You can do this too if you find yourself in the same situation.
