BACON SUNDAY V…

baconsundayv

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 SUNDAY!

Today is BACON SUNDAY!

What is BACON SUNDAY?

Well, it is my way of trying to encourage all to go out with family, friends or even just by yourself with a big old newspaper, and enjoy a big breakfast / brunch!  And of course, that breakfast / brunch would include bacon!

I announced BACON SUNDAY this last week on “The Daily Bacon’s” new Facebook group and I am happy to say that this virtual event has 55 confirmations!

Join the party!  Have a big breakfast today!

Bacon Pic of the Day – Excuse Me Miss…

but I thought I ordered a SIDE of bacon?

Really? REALLY??  These barely fit on the saucer like plate that Lil’ Baird might eat off of.

It is too bad you blew it with the pork because your pancakes were tatsy.  That said, as Paula Abdul once masterfully sung…”there  too many fish in the sea”, so I’m not coming back here anymore restaurant that will go unnamed.

Bacon Pic of the Day – Ho, Ho, Yum…

Better Half and I took Lil’ to her first breakfast with Santa this morning.

Sittin’ there, wondering just exactly what the heck I got myself into and then this was placed right next to me…

Looks like I was a good boy this year!  Thanks Santa…

The Oatmeal Coffee Bacon Beer gets it Meat On…

We talked two weeks ago about one Mr. Sean Fallon from the site Nerd Approved was attempting to home brew a fine stout of oatmeal, coffee and…

BACON!

He’s posted an update on the site today.  It was time to add the bacon to the brew.  I am intrigued by his method of infusion…with the bacon infused bourbon it was about the bacon fat that provided the flavor.  Here he’s cooked up a whole batch, popped it into a hops bag and immersed the meat in the brew.  Hmmmmm.

And again Sean…if you felt like throwin’ a bottle this way…I’d even spring for shipping ;-)

That is right, it’s our sixth 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…
