O Canada! Our home and native….

Oh wait, we live in the US. Well kids there is something else to covet from our neighbors to the north other than maple creme cookies and socialized medicine.

Oh sure, us southerners can play on the site, check our bacon standing (98% thank you very much!), but the biggie? A DECADE of bacon. How sweet would that be? You have to be a resident of Canada though.

Thanks to Rob (some have said the Bacon Chris Doppelganger) for pointing this out.

Happy New Year and More Winners

Congrats to Amanda and Jen on winning some free Oscar Mayer Bacon Lover’s Super Thick Cut Applewood Smoked Bacon! (Should we abbreviate that to OMBLSTCASB? hmmm not very mellifluous.) We had a spotting of it at a Von’s in Simi Valley, YAY! that is close, looks like the heady days of bacon goodness are in full swing now.

Happy New Year! Standard resolution? Eat More Bacon… DONE.

We took vacation and by vacation I mean from the computer so there wasn’t much in the way of posts, mostly just naps and Modern Warfare 2…. mmm good vacation. Other highlights include my surprise birthday party where every dish entree and dessert alike had bacon in them. The bacon lasagna was super filling and Chuck’s bacon wrapped shrimp was AWESOME. Thanks to everyone that participated it was a nice surprise.

Resolution # 2 More posts in 2010 than in 2009.

See you all soon.

Merry Christmas! Especially for our 2nd Winner.
