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 pork-related stuff you've got. I'll credit you (with a link to whatever site you choose), so not only will you be advancing the cause, you'll also be earning undying glory. Drop me an email at kasiab at gmail dot com. Warning: in case the AD FREE banner above doesn't make it clear enough -- I'm not interesting in promoting your product unless I actually like it. If you've got some pork-related thing I think is cool, I'll happily put up a post about it. Emails written in pseudo-enthusiastic robotic corporate ad-speak creep me out; please don't send them to me.
