Good evening, Uncle Henry,
Earlier last week I stopped by our local butcher and picked up three pounds of chuck roast to make Spicy Cowboy Chili and two pounds of bacon as both my supply of bacon grease and the pre-cooked bacon in the freezer were running low. We have about ten pounds of uncooked, vacuum-sealed bacon on hand, but that is for emergency use.
I cooked up both pounds at once and collected the grease with my George Foreman Grill. It was then collected into a Pyrex receptacle and placed into the refrigerator for use in the making of cornbread, the cooking of eggs, and the creation of gumbo, as well as other deliciousness such as pancakes and french toast.
Attached are pictures of the bacon before and after it was cooked. Also shown is the grease that was collected and the means by which we protect our bacon and grease.
Lastly, while this was cooking up I decided to make use of the remaining pre-cooked bacon and had myself a toasted peanut butter sandwich made with the bread my wife bakes fresh every week. I washed it down with a tall glass of sweet tea made with Community, the best tea around!
Anyway, feel free to post these pictures on the website. With luck you'll have quite the bacon-scented archive before the year is done!
Looking forward to the week!
