How I did it: I just kept putting off signing up for classes until my boyfriend finally dragged me to the gym. I had my 1st class tonight and it was great! I found out I ROCK at balance poses! Read how I did it…
How I did it: I stuck with my HORRIBLE job until I found something else. I was afraid that in this economy I might be stuck for 6 months or more without income. I ALMOST quit several times, then somehow Id always show up the next day, miserable.Put your resume out there, respond to want ads, go to ANY interview you get, even if you might not want the job it is good practice.

I made these to go with X-mas dinner this year and they were yummy! I found that if you use turkey bacon instead of pork, the finished puffs look much more appetizing (more browned and crispy) and were delicious! However, my boyfriend slightly preferred the taste of the pork, I assume because it is more greasy and the flavor soaked through a bit more. Anyway here’s (EASY!!) the recipe, I think these would also be great for breakfast!
Bacon puffs are made with bread and bacon and cheese,
Cook Time: 20 minutes
12 slices Bacon, about 8 ounces (you’ll want to get the longer slices)
8 slices thin-sliced bread
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
Cut crusts from bread then cut each slice in half. For each puff, place 2 bread halves, end to end, on a strip of bacon. Sprinkle with 3 tablespoons shredded cheese. Roll up and fasten with picks. Stand rolls on edge on a rack in a shallow baking pan. Bake at 400° 20 minutes, or until lightly browned. Serve hot.
Makes 12 appetizer puffs.
