It's All About the Bacon
I had rather be shut up in a very modest cottage with my books, my family, and a few old friends, dining on simple bacon, and letting the world roll on as it liked, than to occupy the most splendid post.
Thomas Jefferson
Oregon food is fresh, local, seasonal, healthy and a wee bit drab — in short, the antithesis of football food. Alabama, meanwhile, has a healthy appreciation of why and how bacon should be incorporated into any vegetable.

Freezing Bacon Grease I have used bacon grease for frying the usual - potatoes, eggs and of course, in green beans. But I also use some when frying onions, mushrooms and green peppers for any reason (from sausage subs to a side for a steak meal). I go to my market and purchase what is considered “bacon ends” (irregular slices from the ends of the slab) at about half price. I then cut the slices in half. I fry the entire package which is usually about 2 lb.. all at one time, in batches. After the bacon has cooled, I wrap the strips in waxed paper and then in a freezer bag. When I need some bacon for blt’s etc., it is already done. The grease is first put into a glass bowl to cool down and then, when cool enough, I put it into a quart size freezer bag and sit it upright in my freezer so it freezes into a “log”. When I need a tsp. or two, I slice it off and away I go. By Norma

I would slice it and eat in a sandwich right now. No joke.

Ask Mr. Bacon (from Archie McPhee's blog)
Q: Is the self identical with the body?
Mr. Bacon: I’ve pondered this question for many hours while sizzling in my own fat and the only conclusion I’ve come to is that I smell delicious and small pieces of me can really put some pizzazz into a salad.
