How to successfully wake up your kids in the morning so they 1. Get up right away, excitedly and 2. With a smile on their faces. Hehehe PS: this method had @gummybites7 consent.🤣 Step 1: place entire bacon pack of bacon strips minus the plastic and board of course straight onto a pan with no oil and on low heat. Step 2: once bacon is slightly crispy on one side, flip the entire thing using 2 spatulas. Leave a few minutes then separate the strips. Step 3: fry in its own oil. Still on low heat. Step 4: drain on a paper towel to remove excess oil and let cool a little to crisp up. Step 5: bring a strip to the room and fan the aroma by the nostrils with lambing WAKEY UP SLEEPY HEAD voice. Hahahaha Gummy really ate this on the bed with her eyes closed then she got up afterwards.🤣 Para-paraan.✌ She requested for me to do this to her today when I told her Im making bacon for brekky. #GummyBites
The Instagram album first shows a photo of Bettina’s daughter Gummy, who is holding a strip of bacon while being asleep. This is followed by a series of easy steps in cooking the bacon, which the actress explains in her caption.
Step 1: Place entire bacon pack of bacon strips, minus the plastic and board of course, straight onto a pan with no oil and on low heat.
Step 2: Once bacon is slightly crispy on one side, flip the entire thing using 2 spatulas. Leave a few minutes then separate the strips.
Step 3: Fry in its own oil. Still on low heat.
Step 4: Drain on a paper towel to remove excess oil and let cool a little to crisp up.
Bettina’s last step consists of bringing the bacon to Gummy’s room and fanning the delicious aroma by her nostrils. “Gummy really ate this in the bed with her eyes closed then she got up afterwards. Para-paraan.” the actress says.
Apparently, Bettina was requested by her 7-year-old daughter to do exactly that when she found out that they were going to have bacon for breakfast and we can see it worked! Who doesn’t want to wake up at the smell of delicious breakfast being brought to your room? Try this trick to your kids and let us know!
