I never meant to take a three month hiatus from Skulls & Bacon. Not sure what happened other than, well, let’s just say I was hibernating. Spring is a few days away so it’s about time I crawl out of my cave to let the funk of these last few months disappate.
Of course, there was a skull object that has brought me back and made me think, goddamn, I need to post this.
I am in love with these Chalkboard Skulls by iamhome, on Etsy.
They come in all different, awesome colors and are handmade, $46.00 each and even come with a piece of chalk.
I promise I’ll be back, I’ve just received some Wild Bill’s Bacon Jerky in the mail and I’m gonna munch on that a bit and be back soon with a review!

Even I think that the bacon madness may have gone a little too far with this but…it is kinda cool in a weird novelty way. I’m pretty sure the people at Archie McPhee are high all the time, you need to be to think up things like this. If you drop one of these magic tablets into a glass of water it will instantly begin to dissolve, creating a cascade of bubbles that will infuse the water with a delicious bacon flavor. They say they work just as well in milk or juice but that’s kinda gross. Each tin contains about fifteen tablets.
There’s no bacon in these Thanksgiving gumballs but I think they’re neat although I don’t expect them to be that tasty. They remind me of the three-course dinner gum from Willy Wonka although I hope these don’t require a trip to the Juicing Room. Each tin contains about twenty-two gumballs in the classic flavors of Thanksgiving – turkey, cranberry and pumpkin pie. While we’re on the subject, scientists are working on gum that would taste like a three-course mean. For realz.
In other exciting bacon news, a few weeks ago, I was checking out an amazing looking recipe for Praline Bacon Ice Cream on the excellent ice cream blog, Scoop Adventures. Ice cream maker extraordinaire, Lindsay, made some for the Bacon Takedown in New Orleans.
She was also giving away 10 pounds of bacon from Hormel and an awesome Bacon Takedown apron. I entered and actually WON! I’ve been handing out free bacon to friends and family and the Bacon Takedown apron looks great hanging in my kitchen. Thanks so much to Lindsay and please check out her blog, it’s got some really interesting ice cream concoctions!
I’ll be on vacation in L.A. starting later this week and my goal is to find the Lardon Bacon Truck. Wish me luck!
