Bacon each day keeps boredom away

It was like Christmas in March. (well, March Madness is also like Christmas in March, but I don’t get gifts.) I found a forgotten holiday gift in a cabinet – and how could I have misplaced this one: the “Bacon Love” 2012 calendar (Andrews McMeel Publishing). With every day, I get a dose of bacon love, lore and goodness. Except for weekends. I guess the researcher had to have time off to cook his own bacon.

There are quotes about bacon from TV shows, websites and books;  bacon products and tips for purchasing bacon; and, or course, tales of extreme bacon love. Like the entry for March 1: “Foreign & Domestic in Austin, Texas is famous for The Ripper sandwich: a bacon-crusted sausage on toasted brioche topped with mustard and relish and served with potatoes, deep fried pickles and onions.” I can start my days with bacon cocktails, bacon-and-egg ice cream, or grilled cheese and bacon. Unless I chew on the little calendar sheets, they’re all calorie free.

It’s a very educational calendar. I have found out that a sounder is a small group of pigs or wild boar foraging in woodlands, according to Jan. 9. And, according to Feb. 3, Anthony is the patron saint of bacon. All hail.
