We have made it to Thursday everybody! Hang in there another day and it's the start to the weekend!! Woohoo!
For today's Throwback Thursday we have one of our very first posts from when Pinstrosity was just a 8 lb. 9 oz. baby blog, the original ran March of 2012 and this one is a good one! check it out!
Em here, so Melinda sent us in one of her Pinstrosities and can I say I am really disappointed that this one didn't work out, bacon in the shape of a heart! How cute would that be for a loved one for breakfast in bed (or for yourself for that matter, you need some bacon lovin' too ;) )?! This looked so easy to do also! Well after what we hear from Melinda, and more importantly what I can show you, it's all to good to be true...
The Original Pin
Two words, no bueno. As Melinda explained, "I tried to make these for my daughter's birthday sleepover... I followed the directions by cutting them in half and shaping them into heart shapes and throwing them in the oven. When it was time to take them out they were small piles of grease that sadly most of them didn't resemble hearts at all. Luckily my husband saved the day and cooked the girls bacon the old-fashioned way - which turned out tasty despite not being as cute." After looking over the recipe on the original blog, the only thing I can think of is maybe Melinda used a different kind of bacon than the original pin. A possible solution for this might be using thick bacon, which tends to still have some substance after being cooked, and after putting them into the heart shapes, stick toothpicks in each end, so the bacon stays in place.
Anyone else do fun shapes with bacon that we should know about?!! Share with us your delicious bacon artistry wisdom!
Thanks for sharing Melinda!
