My First Bacon

A bunch of you sent me

Like my father used to say when we’d cook Bacon: “Check your toes!”

Also, someone is addicted…to bacon salt. I tried it on popcorn and I have to say that I wasn’t hooked. But then again I like “Spike” on my popcorn.

And, on a not so safe for work bacon note (NUDITY IMPLIED?) Bacon Bra.

Finally here is what April fools day looked like for our household:

Now what can I think to do with a giant six foot Sonic? Hmm…

    Dude, that is awesome. When I was a kid, I’d have given quite a lot to even see a six-foot Sonic, much less have one. (I was a strange kid.)

    The neighborhood kids got some pictures with Sonic, so you’re not so strange :) They asked if we also had a Mario.

    I had Sonic curtains, Sonic pillows and a Sonic comforter. I was a little obsessed. I’d say more, but I think that may make this more embarrassing than I want out of something indexed by Google, et al.

    Bacon or Bagels? Higher Fat at Breakfast May Be Healthier Than You Think

    ScienceDaily (Apr. 1, 2010) — The age-old maxim “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper” may in fact be the best advice to follow to prevent metabolic syndrome, according to a new University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) study….

    Did you know that most of the “bacon” in the World is higher quality than the belly cuts used in USA? Just FYI, from Wikipedia:

    Bacon is prepared from several different cuts of meat. In the United States, it is almost always prepared from pork belly. Elsewhere, it is more often made from side and back cuts, and bacon made from bellies is referred to as “streaky”, “fatty”, or “American style”. The side cut has more meat and less fat than the belly. [However!] Bacon may be prepared from either of two distinct back cuts: fatback, which is almost pure fat, and pork loin, which is very lean. Bacon-cured pork loin is known as back bacon.
