    Default Well, none of THIS bacon's gonna end up in my "baked" beans either!!

    I fried up 5 strips of Straub's bacon to render the fat to brown 3
    large red chopped onions and 4 or 5 large cloves of garlic (pressed)
    to put in my batch of "baked" beans I'm making, and I've eaten 4 of
    the 5 strips so far.

    That 5th strip of doomed! :-) MmmmmmmmMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!

    Bacon! YUM! :-)

    What a shame that observant Jews and Muslims can't eat it.
    To go through your entire life and never eat bacon is such
    a tragedy! Worse than never eating chocolate or butter.
    Beef and turkey bacon are pale imitations of the Real Thing.

    I'll tell ya! I had a housemate whose girlfriend was vegetarian except
    when it came to bacon. She said bacon was just too good to give up,
    and I respected and admired her good sense when it came to her food
    choices. I kinda admire vegetarians, but love meat too much to give it
    up.

    Bryan! You've gotta stoop the fee and buy some of Straub's bacon! It's
    fantastic! No artificial flavors or crap in it, just pure deep bacony
    goodness! Mmmmmmmm! Not the best bacon I ever had, but close. The
    absolute BEST bacon I ever had was at that hillbilly place in southern
    MO that has (had?) billboard up al along Hwy 60 and Hyy 161 (I think?)
    They had bacon one tome at their breakfast buffet that was THE BOMB!
    OMG! It was so fantastic! I went there again later and they didn't
    have it anymore and I asked the waitress about it. She said they get
    their meats from local producers and some local producer must've made
    that most excellent bacon.

    PS: I wish I had more of that bacon! :-(

    But that's OK, John. Hadn't you convinced yourself by the third strip that
    the fat was sufficient to flavor the beans?

    Oh, I knew none of this bacon would end up in the beans. It's just too
    good all by itself, and it's my reward for cooking up the batch of
    beans. Cooks get the goodies! :-)

    I had almost a pound (precooked weight) of bacon with a bunch of
    tomatoes I picked to beat the frost. It was Hunter brand, and not the
    best, but still wonderful. My pre-breakfast was a couple of scrambled
    eggs.

    Folks who are that fundie religious cause enough crap for the rest of
    us that I'm glad they are denied that pleasure. I feel sorry for
    their kids though.

    I used leftover chuck roast to make beef for tostadas tonight. It was
    great, and a consolation for the drubbing I had to watch Mizzou get at
    the hands of a team with astounding place kickers, and a defensive
    secondary that covered one of the best receiver corps/quarterbacks in
    college football to the point that he was almost shut down. Nebraska
    might be the best one loss team in the country.

    Like I said you gotta try a LB of Sraub's bacon. I'll buy a LB and
    bring it over if we make B(A?)LTs this time rather than diverting to
    brats like happened last time.

    Let me know.

    If my Juliet tomatoes, which are covered with plastic, produce some
    more great stuff, I'll take you up on that. I don't know why those
    are billed as early season. They are astoundingly vigorous
    indeterminate vines that produce like crazy in late Summer until
    frost, but I never get much from them until late July. Hey, you're
    coming to my 50th B-day party, right?

    I should bring tomatoes to the restaurant if I have survivors. I
    should, because the plastic has done its job so far.

    Yeah, right after I visit Williams-Sonoma in Plaza Frontenac to see
    Nigella Lawson and get her to sign a copy of her new book "Nigella
    Kitchen":

    http://www.stltoday.com/entertainmen...7a4a78c22.html

    I sure with I had a Chocolate Covered Cherry to give her. Maybe I
    should make up a small batch and make her a special off-season
    Christmas Gift just because I can! But I don't think any stores have
    fresh cherries this time of year. They get Chilean cherries in for
    Christmas, that's how I get them then. I will have to investigate.
    Maybe Straub's might have them! I would love to give Nigella some of
    my Chocolate Covered Cherries because I know she would love them.

    More than just religeous beliefs. I work with several people who
    won't eat anything that comes from a pig. They are considered by many
    to be dirty animals.

    Pigs used to be filthy. Prime sources of trichinosis too. Not so
    anymore, at least in the U.S. Most pork is raised under very sanitary
    conditions and can even be eaten rare. The old dietary rules were
    invented prior to modern agricultural practices, refrigeration, etc.
    So most no longer make any good sense.

    But just like the religions they come from, people still follow them
    even though they don't make any sense.

    While your Chocolate Covered Cherries truly are spectacular, they've
    never given me the kind of feelings that I know you'd like Ms. Lawson
    to have for you
    Of course I'm pretty far to the hetero side of the continuum.

    Not for me, for the Chocolate Covered Cherries! I have a female
    boating friend who calls them "orgasms" and I love making them for her
    for that reason, She loves them the same way I love them. And I think
    Nigella would too. And if it would lead to more between me and
    Nigella, all the better! In my wildest fantasies I imagine Nigella and
    I falling in love after she tries one of my Chocolate Covered Cherries
    and we live happily ever after. But I doubt that would ever happen.
    But I do have the very real opportunity to make and give her some, and
    I know she would be very impressed with them. And that would be good
    enough for me!

    Let's see: ride down to Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate for some dark
    chocolate, scope out where I can get some fresh cherries, I have the
    Cherry Kijafa and Chambord and all the other ingredients except for
    grocery store stuff, the weather's cool enough to make this
    happen...:-) I think it may happen!

    If it does, I'll save you some for your birthday! :-)

    Bacon doesn't last very long around here. If I am making it for baked
    beans, I have to cook at least a pound. Of course I don't put that much in
    the beans. I will just barely have enough left for that once everyone
    smells it.

    I know Jewish people who eat turkey bacon, but... Yuck!

    I also can't believe that I used to eat soy bacon when I was a vegetarian.
    The last time I bought any was when we were making a cross country move. We
    were staying in a motel while we finished cleaning our military apartment.
    Most places where I lived in military housing, you had the option of paying
    someone to clean it for you. This place was horrible. They were failing
    inspections of anyone who hired a person to clean. They failed us the first
    time too but we fared better than others I heard of. Husband had stayed
    behind and they told him he had to clean the vents in the ceiling. Of
    course we had no ladder or even a chair for him to stand on!

    Anyway... Our motel had a little kitchenette so I bought a package of this
    soy bacon to eat for breakfast. This microwave didn't work the way mine did
    at home and in a very short amount of time, I had a foul smelling, burned
    mess! The odor was so bad I can still remember it. Never again!

    Then several years later we made another cross country move. We had finally
    come back here to WA and were staying in the Navy Lodge. We came home to
    finding the building evacuated and a firetuck outside. That place also had
    a kitchenette and someone had started a small fire cooking bacon. Luckily
    nobody was hurt and there wasn't any fire damage to the building (perhaps to
    the pan) but the smoke was so overwhelming they couldn't let anyone in until
    they had aired the building out for a couple of hours. We could still smell
    the smoke for days after that.

    So now? I buy my bacon precooked. Yeah, it's more expensive. But you can
    eat it a whole lot quicker. Daughter likes hers limp and just warmed
    though. But I prefer mine crisp almost to the point of being burned.
