How It's Made - Bacon

Don't we all love the How it's made series?
Well there was one about Bacon - from start to finish!
Very interesting process indeed.

Check it out.

How bacon became such a crazy social media meme

There's a great story over on some site called Storify. A whole article about how Bacon became such a popular meme - maybe it's cause it's made of Bacon? Anyway...lots of theories and history and pictures.

Check it out....

Vark Club

Last night was Vark Club, hosted by Sambo, and what a Vark Club it was! The man out did himself. Out of his boots! He cooked up a storm of Schweinsbraten, potatoes with Bacon and sauerkraut.

Here is the recipe he used for the Schweinsbraten (slow roast shoulder of pork). And a couple of photos of the meal - all accompanied by some great beer and good company.

Impressive Vanity Plate

This is certainly another good plate to go along with my own!
Here is mine, and below is the vanity plate spotted in the state of New York recently.

And here is the one from NewYork.

Vegetable Converting Machine

It's an amazing creature that can convert vegetables into Bacon! Yes!
The Pig truly is an amazing animal!

Sainsbury Bacon Brunch

Sainsbury is selling a Long Life Bacon Brunch. What exactly is it you ask?
Well on the pack it says something about "a tasty potato dish with Bacon and onion".
So if you eat it do you have a long life, or will it last a long time before you eat it?

Get it here...

Life Expectancy, Bacon and vegetables

"Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as Bacon."
Words to live by from J&D's Twitter feed.

Google Launches the Bacon Number

So Apple launched the iPhone 5 which seemed to be a little underwhelming. Haven't heard too much hype in the media in the last day or so - not like the previous versions.
In reply, I think is a far better achievement, Google have launched the Bacon Number search - see below...

Gizmodo pointed out that Google now will tell you what any actors Bacon Number is!
How awesome is that?
You know the Bacon Number - 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon.
So go to Google and put in Bacon Number actor name.

Bacon Breakfast

Wrap Bacon on the inside of a muffin tray.
Mix up some eggs and cheese.
Fill to about 3/4 of the way up.
Cook in the oven - not sure how long though!
Enjoy an easy breakfast!

The Foodie gets bakery!

I'm not sure how I missed this as I get all the updates to TheFoodie's website, but thankfully Cheese pointed this out to me and it's certainly a place I'd like to visit the next time I'm in Cape Town.

From this post on this blog it says he's acquired the Jason Bakery and has renamed it David Bakery - I suspect some Tom Foolery here as it also sounds like he's just looking after the bakery for his mate while he's on holiday in Spain.
But I think I'd prefer for the Foodie to stay the owner if what he says is true -
"We’ve also streamlined the menu: every croissant comes with bacon in it! Actually, EVERYTHING comes with bacon! Even coffee comes with a piece of streaky bacon instead of a biscuit."

That does sound great doesn't it! EVERYTHING COMES WITH BACON!
So if you're in Cape Town - get there!

Best Friends Forever

Thanks Tweeds!
Indeed the Pig and the cow remain best friends from their days in the field until the days on the plate!
And they certainly do go well together!

Flavoured Water

Flavoured Water - you're doing it right!

This particular water cooler offers Snow flavoured water or Bacon flavoured water - now I've had the Bacon flavoured from the effervescent tablets and to say it wasn't nice is an not quite sure about this one!

AllThingsBacon Domain Name Poll

I think we've been sitting on the Blogger domain for a little too long now and it's time AllThingsBacon stood on its own feet.
I've thought about it and so far only come up with two reasonable names that are available (don't be a douche and go register them now just to steal them from me!), so please vote on the right hand side there.
Otherwise if you have some other ideas for a domain name for the site - in fact a total rebranding is in order, please post a comment below with your domain name idea.

I'll add the new domain ideas to the poll on the right and leave the voting open for a few weeks.

I must admit I am quite partial to the picture below, so if that could somehow be worked into a logo I'd love it!

Here Piggy Piggy BBQ

So Spoem and I were having a bit of banter about various bacon related sites and possible names for a domain (more on that later) and he stumbles upon a link to - who's tag line is "Here Piggy Piggy BBQ" - at least I hope thats what he was searching for and not "rub my butt".

Anyway...they deserve a mention just for the beauty of their website! Loving the sizzling noise as they flip their Pork steaks!
And the logo is just too cool!
Check them out -
