The War on Bacon

posted at 6:01 pm on October 5, 2012 by Mary Katharine Ham

Welcome! Let us explain.

Kelly Maher of Revealing Politics and I are doing a little talk show for 30-45 minutes, here, at 6:15 p.m. every day. We named it The War on Bacon. We figure, since the government is after trans fats, big sodas, salt, and most other sinfully delicious things, it won’t be long before they zero in on our favorite— bacon. So, as fans of pork products— how could I not be?— we are here to fight for it, in the most crucial fight of our time— The War on Bacon. Join the ranks of the Baconators and fight with us!

We talk a lot of politics, a bit of culture, a splash of sports, and in the end, strive to be a show Ron Swanson would want to watch.

While I am totally in sync with the coming War on Bacon, in California they are raging a war on people, with gas prices! It’s like CA wants me to leave.

No Comments, No Bacon?

Yep…this is the place! Ah… the lovely smell of crisp bacon!

How about turkey bacon? I know it’s not the same… ’cause turkeys don’t have pork bellies, but it’s something.

No, they don’t have pork bellies. It is something however. I’m on chestnuts right now. Black walnuts next. The chestnuts are very sweet this year, but they really aren’t a very good substitute for bacon. ; ) Bacon is a very good substitute for bacon though. Say…………….I am going to have some bacon and eggs with chestnuts this weekend. Backsliding for health I’ll call it. : )

Extra thick bacon.

Bmore on October 5, 2012 at 6:41 PM

On the road again. See ya this evening?

Yum, chestnuts and walnuts. My mom has a recipe for Old Kentucky Nut Cake that uses black walnuts.

My daughter just had her yard cleaned up, planted areas mulched and new sod installed to replace the weeds and dead grass. The squirrels have decided that the mulch is the perfect place to store the walnuts from huge tree next door. There is a squirrel stash hole every six inches all over her yard. She’s so mad. I told her it’d be easier to dig out the walnuts now before they root in the spring. She just looked at me like, really? I tried to help. :)

Enjoy your bacon
