    You're getting some special love, that's all LOL!

    Bacon butter. Is that bacon grease + butter= Bacon Butter? That sounds really good. Did you add any seasonings or what? I may have to make this. Going to try out some new recipes this weekend.

    nope just plain bacon fat DH calls it Bacon Butter... I love it! I've got something like 4 jars of it in the fridge + the Duck butter (fat) too! I think you could add any seasonings you want to the bacon fat...um I mean butter... Of course you can always blend up some kerry gold and some bacon fat...that would be tasty... I may have to do that the next time I make ghee!

    Lucky 13! So this week was awesome. I discovered that as long as I have dx codes my health insurance will cover all labs as long as I use an in-network lab. My chiro/np will write up the chit so I'm ready to go!!!! In addition to this I've found 2 docs that have great potential. So I'm looking to get in with them some time at the beginning of feb! The great thing is the both take my health insurance. So at least I might find a potential pcp. If they can help me fix a few things awesome. If they can't then I've got a line on a specialist who I. Going to set up an apt to walk things through.

    Bacon fat will last pretty much forever in the fridge.

    When I was just a child it was never put in the fridge but kept in a container on the stove.

    I use it for everything. Great stuff.
