Squirrel Chasing

Shelby dashed out the door when it was potty time because she saw 
George (the resident squirrel) in the yard.

George ran up the tree as fast as he could, leaving Shelby to
wonder where he went.  Shelby looked around and decided 
George must have wen to the other tree.

However, upon arriving at the next tree, Shelby was tired
and gave up her search.  She went inside and had a bacon 
jerky treat for a snack before taking a nap.

Fortune Cookie Friday

Today at work we ordered Chinese food for lunch. 
Here is the fortune I received in my fortune cookie.
"The fact that others are bad does not imply that you are good."

What do you think about that?

Bacon Jam

I found this recipe in a magazine while sitting at the doctor's office today.I can't wait to make it! 
(I will probably leave out the crushed red pepper flakes though.)

1 pound bacon, cut crosswise into 1/2 inch pieces
1 large yellow onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tsp mustard powder
1/2 cup bourbon
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

In 2 batches, cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently until crisp. 6 minutes per batch. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate.

Discard all but 1 tablespoon fat and return the skillet to medium heat.  Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally until beginning to soften, 6 minutes; stir in the mustard powder.

Add the bourbon, vinegar and maple syrup and simmer, scraping up any brown bits, until the minute is reduced by about half, 3 to 4 minutes.  Stir in the sugar and red pepper.

Return the bacon to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally until the liquid reduces to a fairly thick glaze.  4 to 5 minutes.
