Jazz Up Breakfast with DIY Bacon Bowls

While watching TV a few months ago, I came across a commercial for this bacon bowl product.  Pretty neat premise:  a bowl made out of bacon.  Simple enough, right?  Well, I thought so too and wondered why no one else had come up with this novel idea of making a bowl out of bacon.  A quick online search and I found out several folks had this *ahem* novel idea and it was super easy.

Ingredients:         Bacon                                                                                 Muffin tin


Instructions: Wrap bacon slices around individual muffin tin cups and bake according to directions. You can weave the bacon if you like for a prettier effect.   As you can see I just wrapped the bacon around the tin.

Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes or so Keep a close eye on the bacon so it doesn't burn
Fill. Fill with scrambled eggs and cheese for breakfast or brunch or fill with leafy greens for a tasty salad.  The possibilities are endless.  Enjoy!

Marco's Pizza Adds Spinach to Their Menu

Disclosure: Many thanks to the Marco's Pizza and The Niche Parent Network for providing this item for review. Opinions expressed below are my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation. 

There hasn't been a week in the last 14 years sans pizza.  It's a goto meal on a weekend night and a call ahead meal on those days when practice runs long.  We're not a $5 pizza kinda family.  I like a ton of veggies and a variety of cheeses and fresher is always better.  
A couple of years ago this brand new pizza joint opened in my mom's neighborhood.  I remember they had these pizza crust toppers which was something I'd never seen before from a pizza delivery spot.  One order and the Three Boys and an Old Lady family was hooked.  Hey, what can I say we love pizza.  Pizza makes us happy!


Last year, it happened.  A Marco's Pizza opened just a few blocks from our house. *insert happy face here*  Marco's Pizza celebrated National Spinach Day (March 24) by announcing th…
