Bacon is the new black

You can't turn around without seeing another fast food place adding bacon (and ranch dressing) to everything on their menu. It seems like this is the year of America's love affair with bacon. It's everywhere, but once in awhile, I still find some shocking combinations:

Who doesn't like bacon and eggs? Candied bacon ice cream

You've heard of Turducken, right? A chicken stuffed in a duck stuffed in a turkey. Wrap it in bacon, a Turbaconducken.

Found this gem in the NYTimes: "This recipe is the Bacon Explosion, modestly called by its inventors 'the BBQ Sausage Recipe of all Recipes.' The instructions for constructing this massive torpedo-shaped amalgamation of two pounds of bacon woven through and around two pounds of sausage and slathered in barbecue sauce first appeared last month on the Web site of a team of Kansas City competition barbecuers."

Or try:

Bacon and Chocolate

Bacon Cupcakes, Cookies, and Donuts

Bacon soap

Bacon bra

Bacon of the Month Club

I really wanted to get a Bacon of the Month Club subscription for Dad for Christmas, but at $190 for only six monthly bacon deliveries, I decided to go with Bacon Peanut Brittle instead. Wrapped his gifts in Bacon Wrapping Paper.

Sorry, it's hard to stop. This video makes me uncomfortable, yet I can't look away.

If you can't plan your Super Bowl party menu after this, I give up.

Where can I find some kosher bacon?

Oh my hilarious. While I do love the bacon bra, the link to bacon-up your webpage made me laugh really hard.

You are out of your crazy mind, Kimberly. That's a Paula phrase I could get into. Kind of like I still get into sandwiches in a big way.
