BACON DAY

TL 12-30 BACON DAY

12-30 BACON, EGGS & COFFEE

We plan, we toil, we suffer – in the hope of what?  A camel-load of idol’s eyes?  The title deeds of Radio City?  The empire of Asia?  A trip to the moon?  No, no, no, no.  Simply to wake just in time to smell coffee and bacon and eggs.  – J.B. Priestly

There are bad words that begin with the letter B.  We won’t be reviewing those here – I’ll not waste time, gray matter or space to dignify those words.  I will, however, let you know one word that starts with B that will make you smile and want to heat up the skillet – BACON!!!

Today is BACON DAY!  Did you know bacon had a special day?  Well – it does!  Most Americans feel downright patriotic about bacon!

What is patriotism but the love of the food one ate as a child?  – Lin Yutang

We don’t eat a lot of bacon since my husband had a heart attack a few years ago, but once in a while we use common sense and moderation with some foods, bacon being one of them.  Through the years I have seen some pretty weird things that have a bacon scent, such as:

 CANDLES

AIR FRESHENERS FOR CARS

TOOTHPASTE

ADHESIVE BANDAGES

SOAP…

just to name a few! 

There’s just something about the smell of bacon, isn’t there?  Oh – and have you seen the DIET COKE WITH BACON, or the BACON FLAVORED TOOTHPICKS?  If you can come up with a product that smells or tastes like bacon, you have a hit on your hands for sure!

Here is a Bacon Day Q & A:

Wasn’t that helpful and informative?  So what will you do to celebrate Bacon Day?  I thought of writing a poem, but all I heard was the sound of crickets in my head – so I just took a nap instead.  I was going to ask my friend Lucinda to write a poem about bacon, but I was afraid she would call the Wichita chapter of the men in the white coats to come and take me away.  I’m just kidding, she wouldn’t do that.

I did find this…

Wow – he’s really passionate about his bacon, eh? I think Lucinda and I should recite our poetry with bongo drums.  LOL!

And yeah – there’s a song about makin’ bacon pancakes.  Hee hee (hiccup – oh, sorry!)  Not bad manners, just good bacon…  😉

Well, I know that fried bacon is a temptation all by itself, but I like this recipe:
