December 14: Violet likes to look at books. And pull them all off the shelf. A favorite baby game.
We had some bacon today, and I thought I’d share my bacon strategy. If I cook bacon as part of a meal, like with eggs, we usually use half the package. For the rest of the package, I take off 2-3 strips at a time and fold them over together then lay them flat in a freezer bag.
Then I freeze them flat, and they’re super convenient anytime I need a little bacon. You can get a lot of flavor from two strips of bacon; I use them for potato soup, quiche, sandwiches, spinach and beans. So this works well for me – lots of bacon flavor on hand, convenient portioning and efficient storage.
Evan and I love the picture of Violet with the books! He recognizes many of those titles.
