But Just add Bacon !!!!!!
All cooked up
I’m just a bacon amateur !!!!
I love bacon, but this is just not cool:
Just when you though the bacon fad was fizzling out, J&D’s Foods –the same Seattle-based company that brought us the bacon coffin and bacon mayonnaise (all real products) — now has introduced Bacon Condoms that claims to “make your meat look like meat.”
As an added bonus, each condom is coated with its very own J&D’s baconlube.
From it press release: “Truly the new standard of animal protein themed prophylactics Bacon Condoms are proudly Made in America of the highest quality latex and rigorously tested to help ensure the utmost reliability and safety for when you’re makin’ Bacon.”
I had a hankering to use some bacon in my dinner, so Bacon Wrapped Chicken was the choice
An extremely excellent ratio of two meat to one dairy for the ingredients.
A very rare action shot for the blog. Pounding out the meat.
Pepper and salt, real simple.
NOTE ! !! My lawyer is making me tell you to remove the toothpicks before eating !!!
Now for the mashed potatoes. No, not all of that garlic will be going in.
Do you remember “Squashy” from my Thanksgiving dinner??? She’s history !!!
Melt butter, brown sugar and mix in freshly ground black pepper and toss with the cut up squash. It bakes at 400 degrees for about 60 minutes
Cooked potatoes with the butter.
I found a package of cream cheese in the fridge and tossed that in as well.
Here comes the entree !!!
Dispatcher: 911, what is your emergency?
Caller: BACON !!! FIRE !!! FIRE !!!
Dispatcher: Sir? I don’t understand what your emergency is.
Caller: FIRE,FIRE,FIRE !!! BACON BURNING !!!
Dispatcher: Your bacon is on fire sir?
Dispatcher: Burning bacon is not a reason to call 911 sir, good day.
OK, the very sad back story:
Starting off with a nice package of thick cut and very fresh bacon
Adding some brown sugar with fresh ground black pepper
oh, starting to look great !!
And then the Hindenburg crashes into the Titanic !!!!
The picture while surely showing the pain of the lost bacon does not do it justice. I twas horrible !!!
I thought that the way I set the bacon on the grill that the grease would not hit the flames, but guess what, I was wrong.
The “funny” part of this is that my daughter saw all of this and did not want to eat dinner because “I don’t want to eat something you burned and then had water poured on it.” She didn’t know that the other food on the grill was OK.
A short time ago, I was rewarded (off the books) for a project that had incredible results.
And that reward was a “Chili’s Gift card”
So the family had a couple of dinners at Chili’s
The first time it was just a classic bacon cheese burger. Bacon and cheese is about the limit to the amount of “stuff” that gets piled on a burger for me. Good thick apple wood bacon.
The next dinner we had, the wife suggested we get the “2 for $20″ deal. A shared appetizer and two entrees.
We had the “Crispy Onion String & Jalapeño Stack”.
Now, there are nanny state ninnys that get enjoyment from telling others not to enjoy themselves:
Well, screw them.
We ate it and enjoyed it a lot !!!
Dang, those Jalapeño’s are hot !!
“Beer wench, fetch me a stein!!”
And I got the dry rub ribs.
I like ribs, but every time that I order ribs, I always end up thinking that I should have just got the burger !! Food regrets !
What was really neat (and new to me) was a small electronic device at the table that you could use to pay.
Police are investigating an unusual bias crime on Staten Island.
Muslims who gathered for prayer to celebrate the end of Ramadan in a city park found bacon scattered on the ground, CBS 2’s John Slattery reported Monday.
With Ramadan ending this past weekend, Muslims celebrated the end of fasting with prayer. On Staten Island an outdoor service was held Sunday on a New Dorp football field, attracting some 1,500 Muslims.
But before most of the faithful arrived for Morning Prayer, it was discovered that someone had scattered a quantity of raw bacon on the field.
“This has been determined to be a bias event on the part of our Hate Crimes Task Force,” NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly told reporters, including WCBS 880′s Rich Lamb.
Because the offensive meat was found early, organizers said the prayer service was shifted to another area of the park. So, most of those present didn’t know of the problem until the service was over.
I actually hope that the person that did this gets caught.
I would love to see this work its way through the court system.
I am personally appalled and disgusted that there are “Hate Crime” laws. (VERY ORWELLIAN !!)
The motivation or thought process is not important, it’s the crime committed that is important.
Wasting bacon should be a crime……

So I went back to Big Lots and bought a can of the Bacon Spam.
It’s been a few years since I have eaten spam and I don’t quite recall it looking so disgusting !!
Well, I paid for it and I have eaten worse………
Into the fryng pan with some sausage patties for my daughter.
Mmmmmmmmm, crispy”meat” !!!
Served up with the hash browns and scrambled eggs.
It tasted just as I remembered and it was good.
There was however enough fat in just that one can for an entire small village !!!
