  • 4-6 slices thick cut bacon, chopped
  • 2 cups dry macaroni or small pasta of choice (I used scoobi doo/cavatappi)
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups grated cheese of choice (I used a mix of mozza and cheddar)
  • extra cheese for baking, if desired
  • 4 large eggs

inspired by Indulgent Eats

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Fry the bacon until crispy, set aside.

Boil your pasta until al dente, according the package. When it’s done, drain and set aside until your sauce is finished.

In the same pot or a large sauté pan or skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour and stir constantly for about three minutes, until completely smooth and incorporated. Pour in 1 cup of the milk in a thin stream while whisking. It might start out lumpy, but keep whisking and it will smooth out into a thick paste. Add the rest of the milk and whisk until smooth. Keep on medium heat, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes, until the sauce thickens.

Remove from the heat and add the salt and pepper, and cheese. Stir until cheese is melted. Add the drained pasta and bacon and and gently mix. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed. Place the mac and cheese in an oven-proof skillet.

Make four small wells in the mac. Separate the egg whites from the yolks and pour the whites into the wells. This’ll ensure that the white are cooked while the yolks stay runny. Sprinkle cheese around the wells, if using. Bake until the whites are almost set, about 10 minutes. Top the whites with the yolks and bake until the yolks are just starting to set, 2-3 minutes. Remove from the oven and enjoy!

Along with fur and leather, Alicia Silverstone would like you stop wearing wool. And to get you to do it, she’s going nude. Well, PG-13 nude. In a new ad for PETA, the actress is photographed in nothing but her birthday suit while standing in a forest with the accompanying tagline: “I’d rather be naked than wear wool.”

The Nikon CFI Plan Achromat 10X NA 0.25 objective has proved to be an excellent lens for this purpose. It delivers its rated magnification when used with a 200 mm telephoto or “tube” lens, and it has been shown able to cover a full-frame sensor (36mm x 24mm) with high quality image when used with an appropriately wide telephoto. With an APS-sized sensor, this objective can also be pushed down to as low as 5X, by using rear lenses as short as 100 mm.

The last few nights I’ve had some odd dreams.

First was one were I was in some place like a shopping center or grocery but it was mostly a bar. I was drinking and when I was just moving the car an officer of the law started asking me questions like, what is the dream team and who were the falcons, as if that was a way to tell if I was drunk.

The second was different but now it’s gone, can’t remember.

The broken gasoline pipeline that’s caused shortages and price spikes in the Southeast is just days away from resuming normal operations.

The company, Colonial Pipeline, said Tuesday it’s completed a 500-foot bypass to carry gasoline around the broken portion of the pipeline. It’s currently conducting tests to make sure that the repair will work.

If it does, Colonial expects to start sending gasoline through the pipeline by Wednesday. It will then take several days for the fuel delivery supply chain to return to normal. The company said it has 700 employees and contractors working on the site.

Prices in those states – Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia — have spiked by as much as 20 cents since the weekend. Those states have have declared emergencies and relaxed restrictions on fuel transportation due to shortage.

The leak occurred on Sept. 9 in a rural area south of Birmingham, Alabama, on a portion of the pipeline that’s 53 years old. Most of the pipeline was built in either the 1960s or 1970s, according to federal records.
