Your show this morning inspired me to make some bacon. Are you aware that you are inspiring excessive, spontaneous bacon consumption? Well, I just happened to have some fine, thick-cut, hickory smoked bacon in the meat drawer, so I threw it in the frying pan! Attached is a photo of its sizzling goodness (mmm, can't you just smell it?). I have also attached a photo of my BACON GREASE JAR FOR RUSTY! And, Rusty, I am 26, AND FROM VIRGINIA, so you have NO EXCUSE! Bacon grease is an excellent cooking tool, so much more than just a bacon by-product. Also, if you find a coffee cup to be unsatisfactory for a bacon grease storage container, for whatever reason/excuse you use, please remember that you are not required to use a mug! My family does use mugs for their bacon grease stash, but my husband, Major Will, has always reused jars for bacon grease. The one pictured is a washed and sanitized pickled okra jar. It does a fine job! Uncle Henry, I hope this helps you smear some sense onto your intern.
Now a happy listener in NC, thanks to Major Will,
Hillary (no not that one, thank God)
