We all see the statistics of how many women report being raped, assaulted, and harassed each year. But what we fail to recognize in this verbiage is that for every one woman who got assaulted, there's a (statistically speaking) man COMMITTING assault.
Before you start the main dish, make some bacon and set to the side to cool. I used eight slices or so. It really just depends on how much you love bacon (which should be a whole lot). I usually cook my bacon in a cast iron skillet. Great flavor, it doesn't stick, and you get to save all the leftover fat to cook other delicious things in. However, prepare it whatever way works best for you!
This is my favorite potato soup ever. So easy to make. I make a large pot all at once. Everyone says to do this and freeze the leftovers for the future. I love this stuff so much that I just eat it until it's gone. One pot of this lasts me several days. However, if you're not into leftovers, this freezes easily and you can pop it out of the freezer and heat up in a hurry.
I am NOT a chef. I'm a ridiculously picky eater. And I don't know proper cooking terminology for roughly 80 percent of what I make. But, I do dig cooking. I find it to be soothing and, somehow against all odds, I stumble my way into some weirdly good food. More than half the time I don't even have proper measurements. So, I advise you to do what I do and adjust spices and whatnot to your liking.
