On the Subject of Bacon


“I've long said that if I were about to be executed and were given a choice of my last meal,
it would be bacon and eggs. There are few sights that appeal to me more than
the streaks of lean and fat in a good side of bacon, or the lovely round
of pinkish meat framed in delicate white fat that is Canadian bacon.
Nothing is quite as intoxicating as the smell of bacon frying in the morning,
save perhaps the smell of coffee brewing.”

James Beard (1903-1985)

Exquisite! (And though I love it, I never thought I would be calling bacon "exquisite" ~ it's your outstanding photography that made me do it.)

I swear I can smell the delicious aroma al the way on the other side of the country. :)

Bacon! Bacon! Bacon! I love bacon! We should have a good fattening breakfast together--just us chickens pigging out and chatting about.

You guys are killing my ego in all the best ways.

We all love food yanno, which in my mind means we're not opposed to drooling, salivating, craving...

it was bacon on a plate. y'all could do it too.
In fact I've seen you do it. You look at food and its more than something to eat, its a piece of art. You all get that, I know because I've sat and admired your images.

And well Miss Piggy (laughing) can bite my pork fat. (I happen to like Miss Piggy)

Ruffles her chicken feathers does a bawk and waddles off to the barn... : )))

Mmmm. Bacon. *makes Homer Simpson-type noise* I happen to like my bacon as close to cremated as possible (I like crispy bacon) and when I used to work in a professional kitchen, the guys used to make fun of me. One time they burned a tray of bacon and I walked in to find it sitting innocently in my section. I think they figured I'd eat it. I might have if they hadn't carbonized it. :)
