So baconfest is losing its annual label. I love bacon too much to keep myself from gorging on beautiful bacons once a year, so I'm planning to have it around every 6 months or so.
Which means another installment is just a month or so away!

I'm posting both here and on my Facebook to see if anyone has certain dates they can/can't make it. Last time a bunch of people weren't able to come, and the bacons were sad. Yes, they cried sweet, savory bacony tears while I gobbled them down.

I'm planning on a Weekend, either Saturday or Sunday, between late February and early March.

This time, I will be asking folks to bring something to drink, and anything bacony they would like to bring, even if it's just more bacon. I have a few new recipes, and will be making some stuff from last party, so it should be a blast!

I'm also contemplating doing another competition. Any thoughts?

Hope you can all make it!

Like I said earlier, it was a HUGE success! Unfortunately, some people weren't able to make it, but that didn't stop us from gobbling down nummy piggy goodness.

Observe the Evidence:

Before:
Photobucket

After:
Photobucket

This didn't include ALL of the goodies, but you get a good idea what transpired here.

I also did a baconquiz, and let me tell ya, it was hard! Everyone failed. For makeup, I had everyone draw a piggie (in crayon of course) Check them out!

I just received an email back from baconsalt.com and they want to send me some packets and want to know how many people will be at my shindig. WOOOOOT!!!

I need to get a guest list up and running. So... if you want to come, let me know! If you know people that I know or would like, let me know and I can get a flyer to you!

If I didn't say before, It will be on either August 30th or September 1st, whichever works best. I'm leaning more towards Saturday the 30th. That way we can party a bit later if needed.

Oh man, I am getting so jazzed.

Husband has given the green light. Baconfest is on. I just need to figure out a good weekend to do it.

Anyone want to join in? And also any ideas for bacon festivities? I'm thinking of doing a pin the (paper) bacon on the pig, bacon bakin', bacon wrapped BBQin' and of course, bacon frying.

It will be a blast.

I really need to start actively posting again. Work has really sucked up all my energy. It will even more next week (doing nearly 30 hours of overtime) trying help another team catch up. I'm excited to help out, and also meet some new people.

Made bacon cookies again. This time I used yellow cake mix. It's teh awesome.

Our wii is having issues playing discs. I'm taking it to work tomorrow to get it fixed so that nothing goes wrong for the Super Smash Brawl party I'm throwing this weekend.

And I'm watching the cat compulsively paw at a soft blanket. It's the only one she does it on. We call it "making biscuits"

I'm cooking a nice sit down dinner for a friend of mine at work and my fam, will post on how that goes. I've really gotten into glancing at a recipe, and then making my own recipe up.

Oh! I forgot! I made a quiche, two actually. They turned out super good. Of course, 'cause it had bacon in it.

Lots of people have been hounding me for the recipe I used for my bacon cookies. It's really simple: Add bacon to your favorite cookie recipe to make it moar bettar. But if you are a part of the unimaginative, here's what I did...



Andrea's Chocolate cake mix chocolate chip bacon cookies


Ingredients:

1pkg. chocolate cake mix
1 lg. egg
1/4 C. water
1/4 C. vegetable oil
1 C. chocolate chips
1pkg. bacon (preferrably maple cured or something sweet.)


Directions:


Fry bacon to preferred done-ness.

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine cake mix, egg, oil, and water. Beat until well blended.

In a blender (or food processor) on pulse, blend enough bacon into "bacon bit" size pieces to fill 1/4-1/3 cup (depending on how "bacony" you want it").

Drop by teaspoon about 1 inch apart onto greased cookie sheet.

Optional: cut a chunk of bacon off of a strip and push it onto the top of the cookie for added effect.

Bake for 15 minutes or until done. Makes about 4 dozen. (Note: Enjoy all the leftover bacon while baking!)

Find someone who's never had bacon in their cookies and make their day better!

nummies, that is.

I read a few weeks ago an article about someone putting bacon in cookies, with surprisingly fantastic results. I decided to give it a go. Even with the strange stares of my mother and guffaw-ing of my husband, not to mention the strange feeling of putting bacon into a blender, they turned out super freakin' fantastic! So good in fact I'm tempted to make them again.

I will post pics of happy mouths after tomorrow when my bacon cookies will be unveiled at lunch.
