Fat Tuesday

For Lent I've decided to give up meats and sweets. It will be easier because they rhyme, no? In lieu of making pancakes just for my lonesome, I decided to make this:

Delicious bacon and eggs. And, no, I do not like my bacon crispy. I realize I am in the minority on this. But it's my life and my bacon.   The thought of not eating meat for 40 days seems daunting but I am up to the challenge. Two years ago, I gave up Facebook and it was , I am ashamed to admit, pretty hard but I think giving up meats and sweets is going to be way more difficult.

Being that it is Fat Tuesday and I am not eating pancakes and instead feeling like I should make up for that, I am also drinking a couple glasses of this:

Later, I will also be partaking in  a slice of this scrumptiousness:

Crumb cake. So good.

I think that about covers my indulgences before a long time of fasting. Hopefully after this gluttony, I'll be totally okay not eating meats and sweets for 40 days. A girl can dream, right?

 

And just because she's pretty much the cutest thing ever and I won't be giving her up for 40 days, here's a picture of my dog:
