They say Bacon is the chief culprit in luring folks out of vegetarianism.

I don't eat it,.....except

A few times, just to make a point of not being holier than thou, and to blow my girlfriend's mind, I stole her bacon.

Stolen bacon is good bacon

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.

My wife loves bacon, but it never looks like that in the photo above.

We will search through every package in the store and sometimes still leave without a package. There is ONE brand of Canadian bacon we even look at most of the time, all the rest are fat sick.

She starts on it first, and carefully pays attention to every strip. She refuses to allow it to wrinkle, and the ends and the middle are almost cooked seperately, one part or another lifted out of the pan and supported away from the rest so that it is all cooked evenly. Perfectly evenly. It is not allowed to shrivel or shrink, or pop too much. It takes her twice as long as anybody else I ever saw, but its incredible what she can do to a pound of bacon. We have it at least three times a month, at the family breakfasts we have, and it draws everybody together. They bring the babies and even friends to breakfast twice a month, because of my wifes' cooking, and because of her bacon.

My wife makes the best bacon I have ever seen, almost all meat or meatlike, no fatty sections, almost never too crisp sections either. Never a short uncooked greasy end sticking up like half a marble. I never knew any restaurant to make as good of bacon as she cooks, or any other person. She has it down to an art, and it's GOOOOD. Better, more carefully cooked bacon than in any Ad campaign photograph. It one of her most carefully performed feats.

Then, she takes the worst pieces for herself, picks hers apart, eliminating the fatty white part, though there really never are much if we got good bacon. Our pets sit around and salivate, knowing they get the slightest imperfections.



I should take a picture of her bacon some time

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.

One scene in "Food Inc" that made me a little sick was "the killing floor" where ~5 squealing pigs are swept away by a metal wall and presumably crushed into another wall... maybe it has spikes, I don't know...

I'm going to get a pork taco... yummy!
