Did you know that the restaurant Founding Farmers in DC has a cocktail that comes with a bacon stirrer? Truly! Check the lunch/dinner menu.
Here is the description: Bone ‐ Created by the author of Imbibe!, David Wondrich, this savory cocktail is shaken with Knob Creek bourbon, simple syrup and a few dashes of Tabasco. Served with a bacon lollipop.
I sooo want a bacon lollipop.
And was anyone watching Fox and Friends this morning? They featured a new Bar-B-Que sensation called a 'Bacon Explosion.' (see recipe here)
This is bacon, rolled up in sausage (and any other goodies you want to throw in, peppers, etc) them wrapped in a basket weave of, you guessed it, BACON!
They were out in the street, grilling several of them, and the usual 3 commentators were joined by a horde of men, who all quickly sampled the Bacon Explosion. As they talked, I kept seeing hands going to get another piece, and neither of the two females there so much as touched it. As soon as the main commentators stopped talking, I could see all the news guys crew scurrying over to sample it.
You could actually HEAR the arteries clogging up. I have to admit, it did look good.
