This week I had another DIY cooking first and sadly (not really,) I will be adding this to the list of things I will not buy again. Luckily, it is something we do not eat very much of: Bacon.

I have had a pork belly in my freezer for the last year, mainly because I did not have a grill at the temp home and did not have enough time at permanent home to do the whole process. We had a coupon for Home Depot and they had their new season of grills in, so we bought a smallish (21 inch diameter) kettle grill. This meant, I could smoke something, which meant: Bacon!

It cured in the fridge for 11 days and then I smoked it for about 90 minutes and voila...

It is the best bacon I have ever had! When it cooled I sliced off a piece and we tasted it. Even though, hubby is not a huge fan of bacon, he kept going back for more; yay!

In other news: 1. I had my third resting metabolic rate test on Wednesday and I think we finally figured out the issue. By sitting up, the mask fit me better, so we got a more accurate reading. It is still lower than it should be, but not low enough to indicate thyroid issues. I thought that was a win. 2. We bought a compost bin and started that in a corner of the back yard. I am excited about being able to do something with excess non-animal food waste that is useful. 3. We scheduled a trip to Montreal & Quebec City for our anniversary in June. If any flisters live there or have been, I would love rec's for hotels, things to do, and restaurants.
