Silly little cooking tips

How about some silly little cooking/shopping tips? I got extra thick bacon the other day at the store, and gosh by golly this stuff rocks.

It fits on the rack that goes in a sheet pan. The thin bacon doesn't fit due to so many slices of it, so I'd have to crowd it up. And because the bacon is thicker it doesn't burn. Thin bacon burns too quickly, so there's a small window/amount of time between "crisp" and "burnt" when dealing with thin bacon.

Today I tossed the bacon in the oven, made some sunny side up eggs, and some toast.

Any other little recommendations for cooking?

jd, I'm sorry to say that silly no longer exists here.

Too many experts who forgot what silly means.


OK, maybe that's a but rough, but it ain't hard to see.

I cook and eat nice dinners and drink expensive wine in my long johns. It's comfortable and it will stop door to door solicitors from bugging you during dinner time..answer the door and once they get a look at you they won't stick around for long...."hey! Where ya going? Come back! Wanna come in? I've got chocolate for dessert"

I wish I had thought of that when the Mormon missionaries were going door to door. I appreciate they go to a lot of effort for little reward, but dang, those guys are persistent!

We're far enough off the beaten track that nobody bothers to even try to sell religion door-to-door. The only report I've heard in the last couple of years around here was someone selling Kirby vacuums, and they seem to mostly drive the county roads going farm to farm. All I know about them is that they are crazy expensive, and that my father-in-law got virtually his entire house cleaned by the salesman before he told the guy that he already had a Kirby in closet.

A friend of a friend was drinking with our friend and another buddy when the 7th Day Adventists came to call. He told the other 2 "watch this." Then, he proceeded to strip down totally, reached down, grabbed hold of you know what, started back and forth movements with his hand, then opened the door and asked "can I help you?" Needless to say, they immediately turned around and left, and apparently put him on a list as they never came back.
