We can't live in the light all of the time.
You have to take whatever light you can hold into the darkness with you.

A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night,
and in between he does what he wants to do.

Cook Bacon in the Oven!

Earlier this year I learned another way to cook bacon, and boy did I need it because every time I cook bacon I always burn it....and then the house fills with smoke....seriously, every time.
So this is my new go to!

Cook bacon in the oven!

Cover cookie sheet with foil first.

You can either do 375 degrees for about 20 minutes or
 400 degrees for 10 minutes, 
but I prefer the longer time because more of the fat renders out. 

Then all the bacon is done at the same time, meanwhile you were free to make the rest of breakfast! 

If you really want to save time, cook them til they're almost done and then, drain them and pop them in a ziploc bag and store in the freezer.

 When you want a bite take how ever many pieces out and put them in the microwave for 30 seconds.

Quote Friday

An elderly man, in the final days of his life, is lying in bed alone. 
He awakens to see a large group of people clustered around his bed. 
Their faces are loving, but sad. 
Confused, the old man smiles weakly and whispers, 
“You must be my childhood friends, come to say good-bye. I am so grateful.”
 Moving closer, the tallest figure gently grasps the old man’s hand and replies,
 “Yes, we are your best and oldest friends, but long ago you abandoned us.
 For we are the unfulfilled promises of your youth.
 We are the unrealized hopes, dreams and plans that you once felt deeply in your heart,
 but never pursued. 
We are the unique talents that you never refined, 
the special gifts you never discovered.
 Old friend, we have not come to comfort you, but to die with you.
