Bacon Soda: Good or Evil?

By

Just . . . no.

NO.

Are you with me on this? I feel like this takes something so sacred (you know, BACON) and just turns it into something so wrong.

Am I right?

Have you tried bacon soda? Would you? Could you?

Bacon Wedding?

By

Just when I think I’ve seen it all – there’s more.

A couple in San Diego recently got married in a BACON-THEMED WEDDING. That’s a photo of the bouquet above. It’s made of bacon.

You read it correctly. Bacon. Bacon was the theme.

These two lovebirds apparently fell in love due to their fondness for the pork treat.

But I’ve got news for them. My hubby and I FIGHT over the last piece of bacon. THAT’S what a mutual love of bacon gets you, folks.

It seems all lovey-dovey now. But wait until Sunday morning when you’re the last one to sit down to the breakfast table and there are literally only scraps of bacon left.

Let’s see how twinkle-eyed they feel then.

Perhaps I digress.

You can read more about this bacon wedding here and see all the purty pictures of their pork-related decorations. (They sprinkled bits of bacon down the aisle in front of the happy couple. Yeah.)

Think YOU’D ever go this far for your love of bacon?

Bacon Love

I’m SURE this is true for me.

Luckily, my hubby loves bacon as much as I do.

Or is that lucky? Who gets the last piece?

Something to ponder over the weekend – over a plate of bacon!

April Fool’s Bacon?

By

Maybe you’ve seen the ads for this bacon mouthwash. What’s the verdict – do you think it’s an April Fool’s Day joke?

I mean, I love bacon, but honestly I usually use mouthwash AFTER I’ve had bacon. At the same time? Nah.

I would be tempted to try it. You know, for society’s sake and all.

What do you think? If it’s a real product, will you buy it?

Bacon Excuses

By

Already only a few days into the “exercise resolution” I am dreaming of bacon instead.

This shirt says it all.

I guess making excuses is just par for the course, right?

Par for the course.

Mmmm…four course…

Four course meal…

Four course meal with bacon-wrapped filets.

Yep, I’m sunk.

Welp, there’s always next year!

The Art of Bacon

Still looking for a last-minute holiday gift for that special someone?

If he/she likes bacon, this is it.

It’s a portrait of Kevin Bacon . . . made entirely of bacon.

Does it get more appealing than that?

I think not.

Bacon-y Thanksgiving

By

Is this a work of art or what? It gives new meaning to “turkey bacon.”

How have I never thought of this before? I put bacon on top of my meatloaf, why not my Thanksgiving turkey?

What beautiful smells and flavors this will give forth!!!!

I hope you’re having a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with good food and good cheer. There is much to be thankful for!

And bacon is one of them.

Biggest Bacon Burger!

By

Check that out!

Recently, the Black Bear Casino Resort in Minnesota broke the world record for the largest hamburger. It is, in fact, a bacon cheeseburger weighing in at more than a ton.

A ton!

I don’t know if I’m enticed or really grossed out.

Can I be both?

A CRANE had to flip that bad boy. Now that’s a serious burger.

But the best part of all (besides the incredible teamwork and culinary skill that went into this feat)? After the world record was verified spectators got to eat that amazing creation.

At least none of it went to waste. THAT would have been a real tragedy.

Peanut Butter and Bacon Sandwich

By

Bacon is surging in popularity.

It’s kind of a crazy phenomenon right now, but I’m riding this wave, man!

So it’s only natural that some interesting bacon-related recipes might be coming to light. And this one’s a doozy.

Maybe you cringed at Elvis’ peanut butter and banana sandwiches, but will you feel the same way about a peanut butter and bacon sandwich?

Think about it. There are so many flavors to like here. Why not put them all together?

And, truly, anything with bacon in it is just taken to the next level of awesomeness in my opinion.

So if you’re bold enough to try this new flavor sensation, click here to read a killer peanut butter and bacon recipe.

Let me know what you think. I’ll still like ya if it’s not your cup of tea. And you can always just pull out the bacon and chow down on it alone. No harm, no foul!

Bacon…Soap-Style

By

Looks good enough to eat, right?

But it’s soap!

It’s amazing the things a creative mind can do.

That bacon looks really crispy and perfectly cooked. I do wish it was real. Just a little.

Now I’m really jonesing for some bacon. Lots of it.

Incredible handiwork!
