Bacon Greeting Cards

Awhile back I was contacted by a representative of Ron Kanfi, the president of Noble Works, a greeting card company, asking me if I’d be willing to review some of their bacon-themed cards on the blog. I agreed, and she sent over a pack.

To be honest, I’m not entirely sure what occasion calls for a bacon card. Happy Birthday, friend! Have I told you lately how much I love bacon (and you, I guess)? Though come to think of it, I get quite a lot of emails declaring that International Bacon Day is nigh (there seem to be many such days – is there some kind of international committee that regulates such things? They should investigate the Bacon Day issue), so maybe if you’re bringing someone a gift of pork on a day that is devoted to it, you could match it with a thematically appropriate card saying Happy Bake-day (wink wink), or Happy Birthday (to Bacon, not you)? I really don’t know. I’m actually not big into gift cards myself (though I do love sending postcards when I travel), but Better Half almost always includes them with gifts, which makes me feel like I need to step my game up. Maybe it is more conventional than I realize to have birthday cards that seem to be talking about things totally unrelated to the person or their birthday. Or maybe I could think of these as postcards with a lot more space and an envelope. I dunno.

ANYWAYS. These are very nice cards. Bright, lively colors, and reasonably clever messages. This was my favorite:

But if you go to the Noble Works website – www.nobleworkscards.com – you’ll find that they have lots of cards of all different kinds, many of which have more obvious use than missives pledging love to pork.

Bacon – Taste the Rainbow!

I’m gonna let the pictures do the talkin’ here…

 

Yes, that is a rainbow of bacon!  Why?  Because someone (a certain Neil Caldwell) dared to dream.

I don’t know how I feel about this and have reservations about eating anything that blue or purple or green but I will give the man some credit, he’s gone and done something pretty unique.

Thanks to FoTDB Justin for the heads up on this story found on Bacon Today.

2554. PASTRAMI BACON MELT

serves two

1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 tablespoon horseradish
1 tablespoon hot sauce
2 tablespoons jalapeno peppers, diced
2 tablespoons (8 olives) Spanish manzanilla olives with minced pimento
4 tablespoons sweet pickle, diced
1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
6 slices bacon, cooked
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
8 slices (approx. 1/2 lb.) pastrami
1 tablespoon butter
3 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded
3 oz. Temptin cheese, shredded
4 slices extra sour rye bread

In a small bowl, mix all spicy spread ingredients together and set aside. (This can be made ahead of time and kept refrigerated.) Cook the bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until slightly crisp, about 8 minutes. Remove and drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Set aside to keep warm. In a medium-size sauté pan over medium heat, add extra-virgin olive oil and pastrami. Heat the pastrami thoroughly, approximately 4 minutes. Keep warm. Heat a large, flat grill pan over medium heat and melt butter. Lay the slices of bread on top of the butter then distribute the Temptin cheese on two halves and the cheddar cheese on the other two halves. Cook open faced until the cheese melts and the bread is golden, about 6 minutes.
