BACON SUNDAY IV…It’s Time…

It’s been awhile, I think the world needs another BACON SUNDAY!

baconsundayii1

For all the new folks comin’ by, BACON SUNDAY is a day that you set aside to truly enjoy a breakfast! It could be you getting together with friends, family or even just a quiet morning at a greasy spoon with your newspaper.

As the name suggests, I select a Sunday and I encourage you to have bacon with that meal.

We have people who have wanted to “attend” BACON SUNDAY, but don’t dig on pork for various reasons. I have heard them and say that BACON SUNDAY is really morning about the act of taking time and enjoying that big breakfast than consumption of bacon. (Even though I’ll probably go through a pound of pork myself ;-) ).

So mark JUNE 7, 2009 on your calendars and make plans for BACON SUNDAY IV!

You can also visit The Daily Bacon’s group page on Facebook to “RSVP“.

Bacon Pic of the Day – Bacon Brunch…

How do you not stop in your tracks, turn immediately right and enter this restaurant??

If you can’t read it, allow me to spell things out for you:

1. The Sampler – strips of bacon from farms in three different states, bacon marmalade on cheddar biscuit

2. The Entree – choice from 4 bacon favorites – blt, mac & cheese, pizza, grilled cheese

3. The Bacon Brownie – served warm with side of Jack Daniels whipped cream.

I WOULD NOT LEAVE THE RESTAURANT!

More about this dining experience from the young lady who took this picture (and ate the food) over at “Blondie and Brownie“…

Better with Bacon – Bacon and Gorgonzola Corn Bread Sliders…

Did you know that the “National Cornbread Festival” is this weekend in South Pittsburg, TN?

Me neither…but my life now seems a little bit fuller.

Turns out last year’s winner,  Lori Stephens, is making the media rounds throughout the Tennessee Valley showcasing last year’s WINNING recipe…her Bacon and Gorgonzola Corn Bread Sliders.

Look at that.  That is a blue ribbon cornbread!

Wanna make them yourself?  You can find the recipe over at WDEF.com.

Self-Carbonization!!

As friends of TDB you may have come to over these last few years that I have a “thing” for carbonite.  Most specifically, Han Solo in carbonite.

The ONLY thing that I truly covet is a life sized Han Solo in carbonite.

While my dream has still yet to be realized, I have amassed quite a collection of substantially smaller versions, many of which have been highlighted on these electronic pages.

But now I have found quite possibly the SECOND greatest carbonite related product, this thanks to Lucasfilm and Disney World as part of their Star Wars weekends at Hollywood Studios

Guests at Star Wars Weekends this year will be given the opportunity to step into a “Carbon Freezing Chamber,” located near The American Idol Experience in the theme park, and have their faces 3-D scanned using multiple cameras to create a 8-inch figurine depicting themselves frozen in carbonite. It also comes with a light-up wristband.

What, what, what?!?

First thing I felt? Excitement – This is the coolest thing ever!

Second thing? Regret – Why did we book our Disney vacation when we did?

Third? Bargaining – How could I POSSIBLY get back down to Florida next weekend?

Fourth? Acceptance – I’m never going to have this.

AURGH!!!!!!

So, to any of you will either live near the happiest place on earth or are planning on already attending the family nerdfest that is Star Wars weekend…don’t be like me and miss out!  Save those pennies (it costs $99.95) and go get yourself frozen!

Better with Bacon – Bacon Takedown Event

http://abcnews.go.com/video/playerIndex?id=7206736

Seriously, why are we not having these sort of wonderful events here in the “D”…

This is right up there with the Bacon and Bourbon tasting.

I know this isn’t an actual recipe this week, but just look at all the homemade bacon goodness in the video.  If this can’t inspire you to bust out the pork for your next meal, then I just don’t know how to reach you!

ED. NOTE: Here is a link about the experience from a competitor AND it features her recipe for Korean Bacon Lettuce Wraps.  So there you go…play-by-play and photos from the Bacon Takedown AND your weekly recipe!  HA!
