Hot Bacon Salad
2 heads of lettuce
1 bunch of spinach
6 slices of bacon chopped
1 onion finely chopped
1/3 cup cider vinegar
3 T sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Yellow mustard to taste (1 use a tablespoon)
2 eggs slightly beaten
1. Wash and then rip the lettuce and spinach into bite sized pieces. I hate it when they are too big. I can’t be the only one. 🙁
2. Saute the bacon until crisp and then remove to a paper towel to drain.
3. Fry onions in the bacon drippings… I know, but it does taste soooo good. Just don’t make a habit of it. 😉
4. Add the vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper and mustard and continue frying.
5. Scoop out a little of the mixture into the eggs and then dump everything back into the pan. Simmer until the mixture thickens and then pour over the greens. Sprinkle the bacon over the salad and then toss to combine.
This is soooooo good but don’t make a habit of it. We reserve this salad for special occasions! When you don’t have it too often, it really makes an impression!!

1. Put on an apron before you begin baking or cooking.
2. Read the recipe twice… chances are you will miss something first time around.
3. Place a sheet of paper over the recipe page that you aren’t using. Trust me, it is very easy to start following the directions of the wrong recipe.
4. Place all ingredients on the counter ahead of time. That way you will know if you have every ingredient you need.
5. Keep all of your measuring cups and spoons in one drawer. It’s easier to find them that way! And you might want to have more than one set. Again, it just makes things that much easier.
Cleaning the Kitchen
1. Fill the sink with hot soapy water and as you use items, drop them in the water to soak.
2. When you are taking items out of the refrigerator, spot check to see if any shelves need to be wiped down. Doing it on a regular basis makes the job that much easier.
3. Same goes for the stove. Wipe the surface every time you use it and check the oven as well. Burnt on spills wipe up easier if they haven been baked on numerous times.
