Life Lesson #1

As promised, this is the beginning of my series of posts on Abbey's Life Lessons. I got the idea from my TV crush, LeRoy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) of NCIS. Gibbs has many rules - I like to think of them as lessons. Here we go...


EVERYTHING IS BETTER WITH
BACON

NO - Not this BACON

THIS BACON....

Just in case you might doubt my wisdom on this, try adding a little crumble of crispy BACON to a frozen Weight Watchers Mac 'n Cheese "Smart Ones".
Trust me....it's better with BACON*.

And that, Is Abbey's Life Lesson #1.

Please note: By BACON, I mean the real thing. This does NOT include turkey bacon, or so called "Bac-O's" . I have never tried "Beggin' Stripes" but again - it's all imitation of the real thing.
One thing Mom and I agree on REAL FOOD. We might have to eat less of it - but it's 100x better (and better for you) than fake food. At least that's our story and we're stickin' to it!

Note from Abbey's Mom: Abbs isn't very hungry these days and I thought we found the answer in boiled chicken breasts. That wasn't working this morning - so on Ben's suggestion....I took a piece of chicken - topped it with a bite of BACON - viola. She didn't eat a lot - but she ate some. Ah - the beauty of bacon!

We had bacon tonight! We must have been receiving subliminal messages from Miss Abbey. It truly is wonderful.
