    I have been reading a lot of Jung lately, and also found an excellent book on mandalas in my basement which I thumbed through briefly.

    This morning I decide to create a bacon mandala. Behold:


    I used thinly sliced Mennonite double smoked bacon and even chanted "bacuuuuuuun, bacuuuuuuun, bacuuuuuun" while assembling it. Not only does it focus the mind and calm the soul, but it tasted great too!

    I love that there is paper towel under the bacon to soak up the fat. That makes it a lot healthier, eh.

    uh that's standard procedure when making bacon - otherwise you'd have a pool of congealing bacon fat on your plate

    have you really never seen this technique employed?

    And what is achieved by not having a pool of congealing bacon fat on the plate?

    It's just funny to me. Analogous to those people that buy a slice of pepperoni pizza and dab the fat off the pepperonis with a paper towel. Yes, that's is going to make it a lot healthier!

    You should bake your bacon. comes out way better and is easier to make (incl cleanup).

    425'ish for 10-15 minutes or until crispy as desired. Then you can have the stove to make whatever else you want while the bacon cooks. My friend taught me that. Best. Trick. Ever.

    QFT. Baked bacon is soooooo good. You can, of course, play around with temp and cooking times for desired softness or crispiness.

    A bit of maple and brown sugar over the bacon as it bakes gives it a little extra something special too.

    I know it seems silly... but it actually does sop up a lot of fat in some cases. I bet doing that probably absorbs a good 20% of the fat.
