Sunday was a big day for me. First of all, I actually watched some of the Ravens/Steelers game. It's kind of a big deal. I thought it was physically impossible for me to focus on watching football, but I found a way.

I tried out some new (to me) kinds of shoes and ran a total of 3 miles. This brought my weekly total to 18, which sounds pathetic, but that's six times my mileage from the previous week.
I felt I've been in a bit of a rut with meals lately, and was in the mood to try some new recipes. One of my favorite blogs, Crouton Queen, posted a delicious sounding combo of baked potato soup and beer bread. (I used a different beer bread recipe based on ingredients I already had but it wasn't the best).
The baked potato soup called for bacon, and based on my recent meat success eating fried turkey, I decided to go for it. Bacon was the gateway meat for me since going veg in 1997, but I've only had it cooked by someone else. I didn't even know where to find it in Wegmans. But I persevered, and the salty crispy bacon bits in my soup were well worth the search.

What's your favorite way to eat bacon?
