Who doesn’t love bacon? I know the men in my life LOVE it!
Making things for my Mom and Dad is always a worthwhile endevour. I was fortunate to be raised by two people who love each other, love my brother and I, and went out of their way to support each of us as we grew into “independent” adults. My Dad has recently had a shift in his life, where he is now the care giver for my 100-in-26-days Grandma. He has given up his independence, and is her advocate, motivator, and support system while she lives out her days in the hospital. Seeing his selfless devotion to her is a true act of family.
Trying to figure out what to make for him, who is currently running on empty, was difficult as I finally had to accept the fact that he doesn’t like sweets. My dad has said that statement so many times- and I ignore it. Usually. But this time, I knew I had to make something that was for him (not for me the baker) and that’s where bacon comes in.
I’ve been making this sugar cookie recipe since I was a teenager, and I know that this sugar cookie recipe is the perfect amount of “non-sweet” that he likes.
Thank you Dad for doing everything you do for our family! Happy Father’s Day.
