The Bacon Ninja II

mood: nervousnervous

Feeling better. Mood swings. Still a little sniffly.

My jaunt into "better living through chemistry" seems
to be working out well.

I have discovered "microwave-ready" bacon. It's a
horrible amount of packaging, but it protects the
sensibilities of my bacon-fearing housemates. Self-contained,
no frying, no pan full of grease; it doesn't even require
cookware or plates.

And talk about instant gratification. 2.5 minutes, and --
it's bacon!

Bacon is the gateway meat. They fear I'll turn cannibal next.

yes, the long pig, that's what they call it.

when matthew b. and i were in the atrophy stage of our relationship he would cook bacon in the kitchen all the time. the smell clings, so even if he cooked it for breakfast i could still smell it by the time i got home from work at five.

god, so dumb, all of the silly needling and nitpicking that goes on in relationships. but dood, bacon smells grodes!

on behalf of your housemates, thank you for your discretion.

I want to frame that quote.

What they're really afraid of, I suspect, is that you'll cure them of their vegetarianism. The first step, of course, to overcoming vegetarianism is to admit you have a problem. And the smell of bacon makes it very, very easy to admit. In fact, nearly every person I know who was cured of their vegetarianism reports that bacon was the key to helping them overcome their condition.

The only thing remotely like bacon is really, really good brisket. When it's juicy and smokey at the same time. Mmm...

actually, now that i meditate on it a bit, i am all in favor of you giving up pig and replacing it with human flesh. there are a few politicians that i have in mind you could eat. i hear their heads are FULL OF FAT. nummy nummy, fatheads.

I don't know offhand if this would work for you, but I've been taught to cook bacon by laying several bamboo chopsticks on top of, say, a mayonnaise jar, draping bacon over them, and putting a paper towel over them. Then, microwave them for 2 to 8 minutes (depending on quantity of bacon and desired level of crispiness). Doesn't smell up the place quite like pan frying. Self-contained, no frying, no pan full of grease -- just a mayonnaise jar to drain and wash.

I've learned to cook bacon by wrapping it around asparagus stalks and grilling them. It's divine.

I hear bacon on veggie burgers is pretty good.

Heh...and it gets the Contradictory Seal of Approval. This, of course, delights me immensely.

Yum.

It's true. I used to order that at Hut's. They don't even blink.
