Yay, the weekend has finally arrived… well close enough!  In approx.  9 hours, give or take, the weekend is ours… and that calls for a celebration!  What better way to celebrate, than with bacon! Bacon, in my opinion, should be its own food group… Funny enough, I don’t eat a lot of meat and I recently have been toying with the idea of becoming a vegetarian… but honestly the thought of giving up bacon scares me!  It’s a constant battle…… Read more »
