Bacon as a side is just OK, tomatoes are tolerable. The definition of synergy must be a BLT, AWESOME !

I am chasing the bacon, earning the bacon. Hmmm...
Yeah, eating it is very good too. It is almost as tasty as smoked salmon.

Last Sunday I ate a whole pund of Bacon. I saw it in the fridge. I didn't know I had it. My in laws had bought it from the local smokehouse. I fried up half of it for breakast, no eggs, no toast, just bacon. My wife is pregnant and didn't even want a slice.

That afternoon, I got hungry again so I fried up the other half pound. After eating a pound of Bacon, I have to say I was pretty thirsty all day, and blocked up on the insides for about three days, bu it was worth it.

I regret nothing.

Once in a while my mother would make a "wilted spinach salad."

 Cook Bacon till crips. Reserve drippings and let cool
 Put bacon on paper towel to get rid of the excess oil, then crumble bacon into small bits
 Take fresh spinach, rinse and dry and place in big salad bowl
 Toss with the bacon bits
 Strain the bacon drippings, and add some vinegar and also some sugar.
 Heat it on the stove and then pour over the spinach. Toss very lightly and serve.

Also German potato salad which has bacon in it, but I don't have a recipe.

Bacon alone or with anything else is my favorite food group. The Candy of Meat!

I can't believe that no one has said,
"Bacon tastes good.
Pork chops taste good."

Used to cook 6 full racks of bacon for breakfast on the river. In fact, we had a long running joke about how many meals in a row we could serve Pork. The theory was that the tourists would slow down if you filled their arteries with swine.

For lunch on the first Day we would serve Ham and Swiss
Dinner - Sausage in the spaghetti
Breakfast - 6 racks of bacon with eggs and potatoes, muffins and fruit
Lunch - leftover bacon with the turkey sandwiches
Dinner - bacon in the green beans
breakfast - pork chops
lunch leftover porkchops with the roast beef
I think that's about as far as I took it, but I know a friend served bacon again, somehow.

We made bacon Vodka new years day. Let 3 strips of bacon soak in a mason jar of Vodka, 2 days later I ate one of those strips of bacon and my tongue went numb! Couldn't even taste the bacon...

UUUUmmmm...the BEST late-night snack...

That maple syrup bacon is great stuff. I have my ritual frying technique and usually get it just right...nice melt-int-the-mouth crispy artery-clogging good.

I made some of this maple stuff the other night...I just had to have a late night snack which was induced by an hour of watching a barbeque competition on television, and it was very satisfying.

Not wanting to wake up in the middle of the night with a sour stomach I chewed some Tums and went to bed. Evidently, the maple stuff is pretty potent on the smell scale...about a half hour after drifting off to a blissful sleep my wife wakes up with a started yell thinking the house was on fire! "What's the matter?" I ask her... She asks me, "What's that awful smell? I thought the house was on fire?"
