We’ve got a crisis

February 16th, 2011 · 2 Comments · Cooking, Family

This is my secret weapon. This is the secret to my great cooking and even when I tell my kids that they’re “tasting the love I added”, well 9 times out of 10 it’s really this. And that’s where the crisis comes in. I’m almost out of bacon grease. I usually cook up three pounds […]
