Bacon Pic of the Day…

129054783627129901

Nothing like a pic of pigs porking to start the week!  This prolific performance of procreation is sure to produce some prime pork! 

What’s up with those soliders just staring at them?  Are they hungry or has it been that long since their last leave?

Better with Bacon – Chicken Linguine with Peas, Parmesan and Bacon

YUMMMMMMMMMMMIE!  Yes, yummie with an “I-E” instead of the traditional “Y”.  Why? Because it’s extra special good ;-)

Just in time for dinner it’s yet another great bacon recipe that is simple and easy to make.  Also according to momlogic.com, it will serve 6-8 people for under $10.00.

Get a Whiff of BaconAir…

For those of you who have stuck around here for a while, you know of my love / not so much relationship with the folks at JD’s., makers of Bacon Salt, Baconnaise, MMMvelopes, and most recently bacon cola with Jones.

One one hand, I truly appreciate their inventiveness.

On the other, none of their products include any bacon (at all) and all their stuff kinda taste like yuck.

Well, they are at it again.  This time with the creation of BaconAir

Their “creation” story is pretty good, here’s an excerpt:

Hungry for bacon but don’t want the calories? Try BaconAir! Competing in a sporting event or spelling bee? Try BaconAir! Vacuuming the house? Try BaconAir! Taking a test? Try BaconAir! Driving a race car or semi-truck? Try BaconAir. If you want to run faster, jump higher, look and feel more attractive or memorize long sequences of numbers – try BaconAir! 

Wanna see the rest? Pop over and read it.  While you are there, if you are so moved, you can get your name on the waiting list.  Retail is $8.99.

Bacon Tea?!?

Yes, bacon flavored tea…this one is scaring me a little and I am not one who is easily scared…

bacontea1

So I was this close to picking this up until I read this:

Ingredients: Tea, immitation bacon bits, natural flavors.

Hmmmm.

First, immitation (sic) bacon bits?  No thank you.

Second, natural flavors? I’m guessing that is only maple essence.  The only natural flavoring from bacon comes from bacon fat and I really don’t think they steeped the leaves in pig grease…

So yeah for the idea, boo for execution.

Not buying this, but feel free if you feel so inclined.  If you do, tell me about it…
