How to Cook Bacon in the Microwave

How to Cook Bacon in the Microwave

Jamie here!  I truly love bacon, but I rarely went to all the bother of cooking it until I learned how to cook bacon in the microwave.  It’s so much less messy, and you can cook just a few pieces at a time for an individual breakfast, sandwiches or to crumble over a salad.

I’ll admit, it seems like  it won’t work – I was a non-believer at first too!  But it’s come out crispy and delicious every time I’ve made it :)  Add in the fact that you won’t have to clean your entire stovetop afterwards, and I’m completely sold.

FREE Printable Date Night Conversation Starters

Jamie here!  We posted this previously as part of our frugal Valentine’s Day Ideas for a night in, but I wanted to repost for those of you who haven’t seen it before.  Now that my kids are back in school, I’m trying to focus on my marriage a little more, and I’ve been thinking that this long weekend might be a perfect time to use this idea again :)

One Valentine’s Day years ago – my husband and I were once again planning an evening in with our four kids because we were a) too broke for both a babysitter and dinner and b) didn’t know any babysitters anyway…

A couple days ahead of time, I decided to think up enough questions to create a little Valentine’s game to play with him.  I came up with several questions, some fun instructions and a few dares and wrote them down on slips of paper.  I folded each one up and put them in a heart bowl and waited for Valentine’s Day.
