Bacon Alarm Clock
Let’s take a moment to appreciate the excellent blog Crispy on the Outside’s “This Week in Bacon” feature, always worth a read for those who don’t get enough fried pork product. I especially enjoyed the Bacon Alarm Clock, which takes Michael Scott’s idea from The Office (grilling bacon in a foreman by his bed while he snoozes) to a better, safer level.
I enjoy having breakfast in bed. I like waking up to the smell of bacon —– sue me — and since I don’t have a butler, I have to do it myself. So most nights before I go to bed I will lay six strips of bacon out on my George Foreman Grill. Then I go to sleep. When I wake up, I plug in the grill. I go back to sleep again. Then I wake up to the smell of crackling bacon. It is delicious. It’s good for me. It’s the perfect way to start the day. Today I got up, I stepped onto the grill and it clamped down on my foot. That’s it. I don’t see what’s so hard to believe about that…
