Bacon bacon bacon!

So, I actually made this a long time ago. But, I just started a full time job and haven't had quite as much time (or energy) to cook in the past few weeks. I plan on fixing that very soon! : ) But here is an older recipe I've been meaning to post. Actually, it's not so much a recipe as it is a method. Anyway. Brown Sugar Bacon!
I know this has been done before, but I'd never made it and randomly decided to give a shot one evening to go along with crepes. All I did was layer my bacon (cheap bacon...very cheap was so fatty I thought it was going to be an utter failure! But, I guess all that fat just soaked up that brown sugar and transformed into a sticky, beautiful, tasty, dental catastrophe) on my stoneware bar pan and sprinkle generously with brown sugar. I then baked it in the oven for awhile, til it looked done. I don't know, 20 minutes or so. Voila! It was so good we ate the whole mess before we even began to finish our crepes. I knew we needed a way to make bacon even more ridiculously toxic. : ) Happy artery hardening!!

While I haven't been devoting quite as much time to cooking, I have managed to do a little more photography. It's becoming more and more a passion of mine! Sadly, I've been having trouble with my camera. The pictures have been coming out grainy and streaky. I'm afraid it's about to bite the dust. Let's hope I can get that Nikon before it does!

More Kansas scenery...

I noticed these hay bales on the way to church and wanted very badly to photograph them. My husband stopped on the way home one day, just so I could. :) Isn't he a sweetie?

I think country roads are so achingly beautiful...there's just something so unbridled about them.

I love the lighting in this one. And the lovely natural blurring!

I happen to think Kansas is a beautiful place. : ) Don't you?

This little darling is one of my best friends' daughter.

She's a doll!

This is my oldest nephew. He's my baby, but I can't tell him that anymore. He still gives me hugs though. Without prompting. : )

Oh, how'd this one get in here?? ; )

I think they look like jungle explorers. Even the little one.

Speaking of the little one...

Those eyes kill me. Every time.
