I Smell Bacon. Still.
And now I remember why.
I hate cooking it. Don't get me wrong, I love eating it, but cooking it is another story.
The smoke. The splatters. The smell.
After the bacon was done I used some of the reserved grease to cook the chopped onions in. Let me just tell you, those two ingredients together nearly did me in. I'm surprised I still have paint on my walls.
When I came downstairs this morning I could still smell bacon. And when I smelled my hands, I could still smell onions. I think I've finally got rid of the onion smell, but even this afternoon, almost 24 hours later, my house still wreaks of bacon.
I've heard before that eating too much bacon can clog your arteries. Is it possible that the smell of bacon can clog your sinus's? Because I think that's what happened here.
At least the soup was good. But I may reconsider the recipe next time, and use pre-cooked bacon and minced onion instead.
