Indeed, I always drain it into a mug I keep in the fridge for that sweet, smoky nectar.  Just used a dollop to fry up some frankfurters for chili dogs.  Sure I could have used butter, but that lovely aroma of bacon fat while cooking can't be beat.

I will confess one time this strategy led me astray when I bought a packet of "maple" bacon.  The sweetness and maple flavor stayed in the rendered lard and using it in savory dishes (I think it was frying up onions for an Italian dish) was a little strange.

10 - 4 on that!  Pintos and cabbage = double-wammy!

A little bit of garlic in there will give it extra hang-time!

The Tubercle survived!

 It was rough for several hours, got the shakes and all after about the 3rd round, but it was worth it :D

I'm trying enchiladas tonight. I've had a pork roast simmering in a soup of adobo sauce and chilis. It'll be in there about 6 hours. I'll pull the meat, and mix it with some cheese, and roll in the tortillias, then toss it all in the over for a bit. Wish me the best! Pics to come...

We are doing the Slovakian feast of Vianoce tonight.That is our family trdition for xmas eve.

First a big giant bowl of Kapustnica.

Then maybe break some oplatky drizzled with honey.

Always fried fish.We are doing a fried talapia although carp is more traditional. I just cant eat carp, it tastes like crap and it is all bones. That will be served with the ever present Slovakian style potato salad.

Then we will finish with a desert of Bobalky and poppy seeds.

Maybe I will get off a few pics.

Happy Vianoce.

Tonight, pork schnitzel with a mushroom sauce, maybe some home fries.  Better chill a decent beer!  Just got a bottle of Zwack as a gift too...I suppose that's appropriately central european to be an aperitif to schnitzel...let's just call it bécsi szelet.

This AM, having folks over, and I'll be firing up the Belgian waffle maker.
