Popsicles and Bacon Updates

The strawberry ricotta popsicles I made a couple weeks ago weren't exactly what I expected.  The strawberry flavor was fairly muted, and the texture of the popsicle was more grainy than smooth and creamy.  It's still a refreshing snack, but I don't think I'd make these again.

In more positive news, our homemade bacon was much less salty the second time around.  We defrosted it in the sink and ended up rinsing it again, which helped with the excessive amount of salt in each bite.  There are a few scraps left which I'm excited to use for a nice smoky, savory flavor in an upcoming dish.
