Wrap, Wrap, Wrap, Wrap, Wrap, Wrap It Up…

How do you make anything better???  You wrap it in bacon of course!

But let’s be honest, you don’t want to be wrapping those legos with real pork, that’s just unsanitary.  Thank you Archie McPhee for giving us the next best thing:

Two 20″ x 30″ sheets of wrapping paper, just $3.50 over at mcphee.com.

That is V as in the roman numeral five, as in 5th.  It does not stand for vendetta, victory, visitors of even peace…although I’d live a PEACE of bacon (oh, that was bad, sorry).

Yup, it is time for another BACON SUNDAY!

We’ve had a lot of new folks stopping by since our last “event”, so please allow me a minute to explain just what BACON SUNDAY is…

BACON SUNDAY is a day where we here at “The Daily Bacon“ encourage you to take some time out of your hectic schedules and go enjoy yourself a good old breakfast! It could be a get together with friends, family or even just a quiet morning at a greasy spoon with your newspaper.  I am a HUGE proponent of a great breakfast.  Some of my favorite memories are around big ole breakfasts.

So, as the name suggests, we select a Sunday and of course encourage you to have bacon with that meal.

We have people who have wanted to “attend” BACON SUNDAY, but don’t dig on pork for various reasons. I have heard their cries and now proclaim that BACON SUNDAY doesn’t even have to include pig…just knowing that you are willing to join in the spirit of the “event” is plenty cool with me!

So grab a pen and write this down…the official date for BACON SUNDAY V is August 23, 2009!

Join us won’t you?!?

Bacon Boutique – Bacon Man

This just made me smile…and so I share with you.

My new challenge, how to incorporate the phrase “I sizzle!” into standard conversation.  This has to become my new catch phrase (yes I have a current catch phrase…and a theme song…and I think everyone should).

Pick up your shirt at Red Bubble for $23.94.

Better with Bacon – Guarnaschelli’s Roast Chicken with Bacon…

I have come to really enjoy watching Chef Alex Guarnaschelli cook!  I gained a ton of respect for her while she was on Next Iron Chef, not just for her cooking but for her competitive spirit!

Chef was on CBS This Morning: Saturday this last week and broke out this wonderful piece of bacon goodness…

I mean seriously, LOOK AT THAT BIRD!

Watch the segment below and treat yourself to one heck of a dinner this weekend.

Don’t digg on the corned beef (there may a few of you out there), then enjoy this twist on traditional Irish fair.
