The Steak Debates


What do the ongoing political debates have to do with steak?


See, in my world, everything has something to do with steak. And, it seems, I am not alone.

Case in point:  This excerpt from a CNN.com article about the recent debate between the Republican candidates…

“This was Rick Santorum’s first debate with front-runner status. That means it was his time to get grilled like a fine Kansas City steak. And I wouldn’t say he came out of it like a filet.”

Gorgeous word imagery. I’m getting hungry just thinking about how Santorum did.

And yes, all things lead back to steak. This was a hilarious analogy. And oh so fitting. But this is not the first time steak has played a part in the political landscape. Far from it.

All steak and no sizzle? Seen that one before. Steak dinners shared by heavy-hitters? Check. Celebratory steak barbecues? Every time.

It just goes to show you, steak is all around us – and you don’t have to look very hard to find it. Especially in the political arena.

And frankly THAT’S the kind of world I want my children to inherit. Let’s just see who plays the steak card best this time around.

Steak Fun


I don’t know why a person needs this, but it’s cute! It’s a steak dinner made out of felt and fabric.

I’m thinking they’re toys for children with really, really good taste.

Can you imagine your adorable six-month-old baby gnawing on this nice cut of beef with perfect grill marks? I do believe that is a Kodak moment if ever there was one.

I found this over at Pinterest, but it originally came from Etsy. All great handmade things come from Etsy.

Have a great weekend and do yourself a favor – treat yourself to the real thing!

Bacon Love


If you watch TV, you’ve probably seen those “Marry Bacon” commercials for Jack in the Box.

The first time I saw one, I almost fell out of my chair with laughter. I DO love bacon. Enough to marry it? Eh.

So, they’ve set up a website, MarryBacon.com, with all sorts of silliness. But I love the idea of celebrating bacon.

Every time I eat it I do a little dance.

You’ll find lots of fun bacon-related stuff there – including a Tumblr page, which is where the little artistic goodie above came from. Fun stuff.

And when you’re in the mood for bacon – but not in the mood for Jack in the Box – get your bacon here. It’s where I get mine and it’s to die for. Or marry. Whichever.

Have fun!
