The last Pintester’s Movement (Boozy Candy) was so much fun, when Sonja put out a call for more, I just had to join in again. She’s a sneaky little minx though and changed the rules. This time around, we had to do something she’s already done.
What to do? Well, nails are out because I’m lucky if I can keep color on them. While I love me some cocktails, I’d have a lot of booze and feel it necessary to finish it. (Wait, why did I think this was a bad idea? No idea.) I really wanted to cut a glass bottle with fire, but I’d have to drink the beer first and then light stuff on fire. Frank vetoed that as he prefers I not burn down the apartment. You can see how my options are limited.
Well, it was my turn to cook dinner tonight and we had a package of bacon in the fridge…so in a moment of pinspiration I just knew I had to do BACON HEARTS!
The Pintester, Sonja, found it over on The Paper Mama. Hers came out better than mine, but mine weren’t terrible.
This is where I started to do stuff, but well, it didn’t turn out so awesome. So I opted to go read the instructions. Turns out, cutting the bacon in half made it all a little easier. I posted a picture over on my facebook page, but I don’t want to sully this post with it.
Into the oven it went for about 25 minutes. Bake until it’s as crispy as you’d like.
Don’t be surprised if some come out looking like little lumps of bacon. Delicious little lumps, but less than heart shaped. I suppose it could look like what your heart looks like after a bad break up when it’s been crumpled like an old note and stomped on.
So I ate it.
Frank gave it two thumbs up, but he gives everything with bacon two thumbs up. I don’t know that I’ll do it again, it put a lot of time between open the package and safely get in my belly. Maybe for a special treat.
