Something that shouldn't be in my diet

I tried a little experiment last night. It actually might frighten some of you, it might even make some of you gag. I made homemade pork rinds. Yes, that's right, pork rinds. On my internship, the lady I was living with showed me how, and I never tried until last night. I made a pork roast, and they wrap it in a layer of fat. So when the roast was done, I peeled off the fat and put it back in the oven to dry out for 45 min or so. I have to admit it was soooo tasty! The fat just melts in your mouth...mmmm...I only allowed myself a few bites of my experiment and had to chuck the rest (so sad) but at least I know how to do it now! The only drawback was that now my whole house smells like grease. Even the towel I used for my shower this morning...ew.

I am impressed. I would imaging that it would be delicious - if you could get over the fact that your basically eating skin and fat. But usually it's really just best not to analyze what you're eating too closely. :)
