When I woke up this morning, I started browsing through instagram. This isn’t an unusual thing. I like to go to bed and wake up looking at pictures – that’s just me. One of the first things I saw was a photo from the Today Show. Today, they claim is International Bacon Day. Woohoo! That’s great, I thought. Bring on the bacon. But then I woke up a little bit and thought about the fact that some people don’t eat bacon, because God told them they can’t. That sucks for them. Like really. I’m glad God hasn’t told me not to eat bacon. I think he might throw lightning strikes down on me for my general diet of bacon, peanut butter, and chocolate (though I do eat actual food every now and again). I respect the bacon abstainers though, because they have discipline, something a girl like me is still working on in her thirties. I salute you all for your ability to say no to the sinful bacon.
For those of you who do eat bacon, I say, have at it! I did a little research and came up with a few interesting ideas about what you can do with bacon. Time says you can use bacon as an air freshener. I personally wouldn’t try this because I don’t like bees, flies, or burly men invading my apartment. If your read the article, you’ll see eight other INTERESTING options for bacon use, which I’ll let you discover. International Business times offers recipes including chocolate covered bacon. I’d take this over the bacon martini any day. And how would it be International Bacon Day without discovering Bacon Today, a website devoted to the fatty pork product we love to eat.
My plan to celebrate International Bacon Day is to eat bacon. Ideally, I’d do this by ordering a bacon maple bar at Voodoo Doughnuts in PDX. But I imagine I’ll just order a bacon-themed sandwich as one of the McMenamins* I’m visiting today.
Don’t forget to eat your bacon!
Tata for now.
