|Pretty sure we violated a few health codes.|
So, a question for all of your doctors out there: If you eat bacon that cooked on the dashboard of a car parked outdoors in the midday, 100-plus degree heat, will you experience health issues?
Ah, hell, never mind -- that ship's pretty much sailed. Yesterday at 1 p.m., after reading on the Daily What about some genius who cooked up a couple of trays of cookies in the galactic temperatures
, we attempted leaving bacon and Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies on the dash of a car outside Observer
headquarters, near Maple and Oak Lawn, to see if they would cook.
Then, we, like, ate
the bacon. And the cookies.
Crazy thing? After a few hours in the car, the bacon was
actually crisp in some places. The cookies were a pretty mushy, but
hell, not the worst things we've ever tasted. Definitely better than those
ones at the grocery story with the circle of hard frosting on top.
|Stage two: about 30 minutes later. Temperatures around 102 degrees Fahrenheit. Think surface of Mercury temperatures in the car.|
|Stage three, around 3 p.m. Bacon is nearly crispy on the edges. It's about 103 degrees outside. |
