And my dear friend Katie sent me a link to this article in the NYTimes about their competition for the best use of bacon mayo (original recipe for bacon mayo can be found here). I'm not into mayonnaise myself, but I endorse the general sentiment.
Meanwhile, dear readers, the weather in Chicago is turning crispy and autumnal, which means it's time to start working on my winter coat, ie, eat more bacon. So more updates soon.
Be a part of it! Send me whatever fascinating or delicious bacon-related stuff you've got. I'll credit you (with a link to whatever site you choose), so not only will you be advancing bacon research, you'll also be earning undying glory. Drop me an email at kasiab at gmail dot com.
