I like my fats on long run. Will have to try this at some point.
1. Pickup bacon ends from your store meat section/butcher.
2. Depending on the amount you cook, use a size pot that keeps the bacon ends together when it eventually cooks in its own grease.
3. Place the bacon ends in the pot and fill with enough water to cover the bacon.
4. On a stove bring to a boil, then reduce to medium to medium-high heat. Basically allow all the water to evaporate while melting the fat of the bacon.
5. Eventually the bacon will be frying in its own grease. Cook till the bacon is completely crispy. So control the temperature so avoid burning and stir/ turn the bacon occasionally.
6. With a spoon, tong, or chopsticks, carefully scoop out bacon and place on a plate lined with paper towel.
7. Sprinkle bacon with salt to taste.

If you’re like me, you practice freezing veggies to be used later for cooking and especially Vitamix shakes. Here is what the frozen crumbs of greens like kale or chard can be used for.
Sprinkle them on your cooking instead of parsley.
Ru discusses migraine headaches, dieting, the hollow body, jump rope, and sucking souls.
Blew My Migraines Away post.
Play & Family Update: A tale of sucking souls.
“Most people never get there. They’re afraid or unwilling to demand enough of themselves and take the easy road, the path of least resistance. But struggling and suffering, as I now saw it, were the essence of a life worth living. If you’re not pushing yourself beyond the comfort zone, if you’re not constantly demanding more from yourself—expanding and learning as you go—you’re choosing a numb existence. You’re denying yourself an extraordinary trip.” Dean Karnazes
