I feel the best way to start the week after a long weekend is with a few bacon updates. Over the weekend it seemed bacon was on everyoneâ€™s mind. Just about everyone I met had something bacon related to say. Here are a few I found interesting.
Seduced by Bacon: Americas Favorite Indulgence – A friend said they heard about this book on NPR over the weekend so I went to Amazon to check it out. The book has a one sentence description, â€œA celebration of bacon, filled with gorgeous photographs and seductive new recipes both savory and sweetâ€. I like how they say the recipes are seductive, that right there makes me feel like running out now and buying the book.
Guess What Iâ€™m Craving this Morning â€“ Saskboy also had bacon on the brain. He sent me this post about the thought process this guy goes through in the morning featuring bacon. I found it funny that this guy is afraid to cook bacon without pants, some of the commenterâ€™s on the post think otherwise.
Oscar Mayerâ€™s New Package â€“ This update comes from Andy at WGN Radio 720, it looks like even Chicago couldnâ€™t stop thinking about bacon. He sent me a link about the new bacon packaging from Oscar Mayer. Since I have been doing a lot of my food shopping at Trader Joeâ€™s I didnâ€™t know about the new look. Sadly they have a limited bacon selection there.
I hope your Monday is a little better after a few tasty bacon updates. If you ever come across some interesting bacon news let me know via any possible means of communication. Thanks!
