Bacon LIVE: More like Random LIVE

This week’s show was more random then usual, but to some fans thats not a bad thing. Yes thats right, there are some people that say some of our best shows are the ones where we are off-topic. We are not sure why it happens but I guess some weeks bacon is not the first thing on our minds.

Next week should prove to be different. Since the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival is that weekend, we will have a ton of bacon stuff to talk about. This is my four year going to the festival and I can’t wait to see how there going to wow me this year.

Go to BaconLIVE.com to learn how to subscribe, call the show, and watch us live Wednesdays at 7pm ET!

Watch the live video recording on uStream.tv!

Reminder

baconsundayii1

Bacon Sunday II is this Sunday! I have started this movement to encourage everyone to spend one Sunday a month and enjoy a big breakfast with friends / family or even just by yourself with a big old newspaper!  Of course that breakfast includes bacon! ;-)

Chalkboard Skulls

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.

Black Skull Chalkboard
Purple Skull Chalkboard
Teal Skull Chalkboard

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!

What Makes a Trend?

A really interesting, albeit short, article in the Wall Street Journal last week about how food trends start. Here’s an excerpt:

Bacon. It’s everywhere. Wendy’s features it in the “Baconator” and Paula Deen crumbles it into quiche. Ditto for those deluxe cupcakes top-heavy with frosting. Is there a bakery or supermarket that doesn’t sell them?

Bacon and cupcakes — like sliders, bubble tea, popsicles, food trucks and chipotle — have caught on from coast to coast.

But how?

How indeed.  Click on through, it’s a good read with a great quote from Ted Allen at the end.
