Bacon of Hope

This morning I was quickly scanning my email in-box and I saw an eletter from Sark.  
What caught my eye was the greeting, "Dear Buttercup".  
I was surprised that Sark knew my alter-ego/(other) secret superhero moniker 
(from the Powerpuff Girls)!  
In my rush, I read the subject line as
"BACON OF HOPE", 
instead of the actual title Beacon of Hope...heh. 

Ok, I laughed louder that that.  
I crack myself up!!!

That gave me the idea for this post,
a list favorite bacon things or bacon things I'd like to try!!!
Considering that its almost Valentines Day, 
I say this was a perfectly timed homage to my love, BACON!!! 

Are you ready?!

I've had this.  Its amazing!  
An interesting fact:
Chocolate covered bacon strips are not really that good.
Too greasy. 
But this choco bar, a perfect balance.


Must find this!!!

3) Bacon cups with sweet potato hash as seen on What Would Brian Boitano Cook?!
Couldn't he just come over and make these for me???


4) Paula Deen's Sweet Chicken Bacon Wraps as seen on Marie's blog
via this blog...click the blog link to get the recipe!  
Paula Deen's my girl!!!  She did a low-fat FoodTv show once, 
she giggled the entire time as if it was a huge joke.  Sooo funny!


What number am I on? 
I got distracted by all the BACON, bacon, bAcOn, bacon, BaCoN!!!

5) Bacon Flavored Scrapple.  I have to credit Mike Rowe 
(SWOON!!! I'm gonna marry him!)
for bringing this to my attention on his show Dirty Jobs!  
Yes, somehow I will try this!!!  
Pig snouts, yum!
I'm adventurous!  Anyone else?  Anyone?!


Yeah Baby!!!  Must not shirk on oral hygiene!!!
Aaaahhhhm, Eau de Puerco!!! 
Disappointingly (is that a word?!) it really reeks!!!  
 Mary bot this for me!!!  hee!!!  
It currently resides in the garage.

8)  "I LOVE YOU MORE THAN BACON" button from Sweet Meats on Etsy.
I can't wait to meet the man I would give this to!!!
I keep it handy, just in case! 
(oh wait...Mike Rowe duh!)


  Not sure they intended this for bacon lovers!
snort. 
(BB - Before bacon!)
And finally...

10)  BACON!  The original!!!
Bringin' it home!!!


After all that, I bet your arteries aren't even clogged!
