Behold the MEATINI…

So some inspiring young lads across the pond had an idea…

How can we get an entire English breakfast into a martini glass made of bacon?

The answer…behold the MEATINI

BACON SUNDAY IV…It’s Time…

It’s been awhile, I think the world needs another BACON SUNDAY!

baconsundayii1

For all the new folks comin’ by, BACON SUNDAY is a day that you set aside to truly enjoy a breakfast! It could be you getting together with friends, family or even just a quiet morning at a greasy spoon with your newspaper.

As the name suggests, I select a Sunday and I 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 them and say that BACON SUNDAY is really morning about the act of taking time and enjoying that big breakfast than consumption of bacon. (Even though I’ll probably go through a pound of pork myself ;-) ).

So mark JUNE 7, 2009 on your calendars and make plans for BACON SUNDAY IV!

You can also visit The Daily Bacon’s group page on Facebook to “RSVP“.

Better with Bacon – Bacon Pancakes

This weekend, while in Chicago, my group decided to have breakfast at the Original Pancake House.  Boy howdy!!!  That was some fine eatin’ (which I will post about as soon as I have the photographic evidence I need to visually confirm how YUMMY it was).

One of their menu items was Bacon Pancakes…

So in that spirit, I present to you this week, THIS recipe for your own hotcakes with sweet pork meat!

Bacon Pic of the Day – Bacon Brunch…

How do you not stop in your tracks, turn immediately right and enter this restaurant??

If you can’t read it, allow me to spell things out for you:

1. The Sampler – strips of bacon from farms in three different states, bacon marmalade on cheddar biscuit

2. The Entree – choice from 4 bacon favorites – blt, mac & cheese, pizza, grilled cheese

3. The Bacon Brownie – served warm with side of Jack Daniels whipped cream.

I WOULD NOT LEAVE THE RESTAURANT!

More about this dining experience from the young lady who took this picture (and ate the food) over at “Blondie and Brownie“…

Better with Bacon – Bacon Wrapped Eggs…

Those of you who have followed this blog for a while know that I don’t dig on eggs, but even I have to admit that this look pretty darn good and an incredibly easy thing to put together.  Don’t have any ideas for this Sunday’s family breakfast? Why not give these a try this weekend and let me know what you think!

The Foo Fighter’s Fight for Food…

Not just any food like “promoter pasta” but real food, good food…so of course that means bacon!

Their latest concert rider comes in at 52 pages.  Part seven features their “Field Guide To Food Coloring Book And Activity Pages“.  I’ve pulled together two pages that may be of interest to the FoTDB, but strongly encourage you to witness the entire section in all it’s glory.  Also, I’d suggest attempting the word search…it’s a little more complicated than you may think and it includes a “hidden message” for all those promoters out there.

I’m printing the Dave Grohl cover especially for Lil’ to color.  Think of the street cred she’s going to get at daycare…
