'Tis the Season

My friend Stacey who is not a participant but is clearly a fan of all this Bacon Challenge madness sent me this today (conveniently just as the Christmas shopping season begins):

Christmas presents for you and your Bacon Challenge cohorts:

A few of these may have crossed our bacon eating paths this past 11 months, but some are definitely new to me. It seems that nothing would be better than paying for bacon with money taken from a bacon wallet, but that's just one man's opinion.

Happy Thanksgiving ... now get eating bacon. Only 34 days to get to the elusive 365.

41 Days Left

Even with time dwindling, turkey isn't a shortcut I will take.

Bacon vs. Fries

I guess somebody has to win, but if only we could overcome the bipartisan nature of politics and create a SuperSenator: election results

Fatty Boombalatty

Tonight I went and got myself a burger from Buckeye Beer Engine. Bacon was included. Now I know this is a bacon blog and I'd certainly never try to steal away bacon's thunder with something else, but I think the real story here is actually the burger that the bacon resided upon. It was November's burger of the month called Fatty Melt (you love it already, I can tell).

Per the Beer Engine menu, Fatty Melt is this: Our famous half-pound beef patty, lovingly placed between TWO grilled cheese sandwiches filled with bacon and tomatoes.

Note that the patty is "famous", and that "famous" patty is not just slapped between two grilled cheeses, it's "lovingly placed" there. Let the record show that I could taste both the fame and the love.

With that I must sign off as I think I am about to go into a coma. A delicious, delicious coma.

Note: Sorry the photo isn't better. It was a little dark in there and I guess the camera on my phone doesn't care for that.
