A group of our son’s high school buddies came over to our house tonight, all home from college. I was in the midst of baking chocolate chip cookies like “old times.” “Why do we bake cookies but cook bacon?,” asked one of his friends. We discussed that for awhile. Then I thought of how numerous recipes list bacon as an ingredient; even desserts. So, not wanting to miss out on this opportunity, I cooked up some bacon and added it to a small portion of the cookie dough batter. The result? Not my favorite, but I would always wonder if I hadn’t tried. What other things in my life could I refresh and try creating new?
