Thanks for the bacon hint Felaine.  Yesterday I tried frying it in the oven like you do.  I think I'll use that method from now on, at least in the winter.  

It's easier and doesn't splatter all over my refrigerator.  I just now read that America's Test Kitchen cooks it that way also.  They say it cooks more evenly that way.

Our kids were treated to McDonald's on their birthdays....that's it.......3 kids, so 3 times a year......anything more would not have been a ''treat''!

Am not a clown fan either & never did find them that damn funny!!!

Spud, I' tend to side with Bourdain. Yes, he's lying about missing children. But, unlike most parents, at least he is effectively countering the propaganda of a mega-corporation that serves industrial crap, as Napoleon pointed out, which gets children addicted.

I can think of worse ways to do this, like telling a child who sees Ronald McDonald both Ronald and this other guy are clowns.

I can understand why Anthony Bourdain does what he does to protect his daughter even though it sounds too much like lying to me.  McDonalds targeting young people is not right.

As for clowns, I don't think I feared them, but they always looked very gross to me.  The same as too much makeup on women.  Just can't stand to look at them.

I was always afraid of all clowns when I was a kid.  If Ronald McDonald had been around then, I would have run screaming in another direction, or hid under the car seat.

My all-time favorite burger (in high school) was the ORIGINAL Bob's Big Boy, which is a whole different thing than Frisch's.  I went to a Frisch's in Cincinnati once ...because I was homesick.  Second biggest disappointment in my life.

I raised my children to view Ronald McDonald as evil. And, it worked! Probably not as effective as Anthony Bourdain, but it worked nevertheless.

Oh great! I thought I was the only one who relished slathering my food with real butter, the kind that comes from hormone free milk. It is so good. I like your way of baking bacon, too. Sounds like an easy way to get it just right and not make a huge mess. Thanks for the lead to GOOD CALORIES, BAD CALORIES by Gary Taubes. 

I agree with your statement about the misinformation about food and what is good for us and what isn't. It feels good to be among people who don't get all freaked out about the latest food fad. 

I have butter on the prep counter along with olive oil for cooking and extra virgin olive oil for salads. They suit my taste buds just fine while doing a good job that seems to please others. I also have an assortment of vinegars that make excellent vinaigrette. 

Yes, I remember well the plastic bag full of white goo with a yellow capsule we pinched and then squeezed the bag to mix the color through it. I don't remember a form that you describe, sk8eycat.

Daniel, I would guess that several seasonings of the pans will help them release the cornbread. I seasoned my daughter's cast iron skillets while I was there, and sharpened her knives. Just little jobs I do when I visit. 

Napoleon, a lovely lady with fresh fish; would love a taste of that right now.
