Bacon makes everything better…

4 Aug

Today I was making jello, couldn’t tell you why I was craving it. Cherry, of course. Mixed it all up, poured it into containers, open the cupboard above my counter. The peanut butter attacked me. Clearly it was pissed I was eating cherry jello instead of it in all its creamy glory. Needless to say it landed smack in the middle of my jello. This caused a chain reaction of things falling, jello flying everywhere, basically causing a hot mess.

So, now my carpet’s red. It looks like I murdered someone and left a trail. Seriously? I just got the blue food coloring that my jack russell used to paint the carpet with a few months ago. Mom thinks it’s patriotic. I do not find the humor in this.

I went out for cleaning supplies on my way to the gym. Here I sit scrubbing my carpet and every time I just get a towel full of red and a slightly pink carpet. I’m rebelling and leaving it until tomorrow. Maybe it’ll be easier? I know logically that if the stain sets it probably won’t be. Whatever. I’m not getting my deposit back after 3 years and 2 dogs anyway. Sigh. Epic fail.

Good thing I had some of my peanut butter bacon chocolate chip cookie dough left. It did the trick I’d say. Look at the bacon pieces in these babies.

Peanut Butter Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 1/4 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 egg

1/2 cup chopped, cooked bacon

1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate M&Ms because they were sitting on my counter and I love the extra crunch they give to cookies)

Cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars together until light and whipped looking. Add the egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients and slowly add those to the wet mixture until combined. I baked them at 375 degrees for about 7 minutes; I like my cookies soft. Bacon + chocolate + peanut butter = bliss. They will be devoured tonight.

And then I’ll have bacon and a peanut butter sandwich for breakfast since I now have an abundance of these things in my fridge and cupboard. Hopefully the peanut butter won’t be all suicidal tomorrow. Sigh, again. But on the bright side that little piece of bacon was begging me to just devour it.

If only these guys were carpet cleaners as well…

Oh well. I’ll settle for deliciousness in my tummy.
