I have a confession to make: I cheated on my diet over the weekend.  To be fair, it was my bachelor party; and if there's ever a time to relax the diet, it's on a day I only get one of, right?  Anyway, I had some bacon for breakfast.  It was fantastic.  Then on my first day back to work, I found a neat bacon life-hack!

I you've ever tried to microwave bacon, then you know it's a greasy nightmare.  And I don't know about you, but I'm sure not buying one of those bacon drip-trays from that late-night infomercial.  But if we introduce a regular old coffee mug into the equation, we get a wonderful new way to quickly cook some bacon in the microwave!  Your frying pan will thank you.
