Bacon Scarves!

The Bacon Scarf From FunQi Yummy You Bacon & Egg Scarf Well, here it is, the last day of September and fall is sweeping over the land. Here in Santa Barbara, the evenings are getting cooler, and we’re having occasionally grey days…in between all the sunshine. But since I love autumn, I’m already pulling out sweaters and beanies and scarves in hopeful anticipation. This year you can find a number of amazing bacon scarves! This first one from Chrischunski’s Etsy shop is, as listed, “unsettlingly real-looking.” It also looks super warm and snuggly, not something you get from every...

Do You Heart Bacon?

Well then, have I got the shirt for you! No Star Clothing has come up with this brilliant design, based on a wicked idea for a tattoo. I really love this t-shirt. I’m not usually the type to wear my views and opinions on my person or car, but this graphic seems to scream, “I love bacon and I’m totally rad.” And that’s the kind of message I want to send to the general public. The only thing that could make it better is a wild boar skull in place of the heart. In the coming weeks, look out...

Bacon & Eggs Cufflinks

As I mentioned yesterday, there are times when you want to step up your fashion game a bit. Whether you’re interviewing for a job, have a public speaking engagement, or are walking your daughter down the aisle, you still want to express yourself while looking your best. If the bacon necktie is a bit too much for you, perhaps the more subtle approach of the Bacon & Eggs cufflink is just the thing you need. First we have the Barney’s / Antique Jewel Box version. This one shows only eggs on the outside with the bacon hidden in the...

Bacon Necktie

Let’s say you have an important day ahead of you, maybe a job interview. You want to dress smart to impress your potential employer, but you don’t want him or her to think you’re a stuffed shirt. How do you express your immense capability and still share your sense of whimsy? Why, the bacon tie, of course! This baby will deliver a full State of the Interviewee speech while you’re still on your first handshake. (You can find an even better bacon necktie here, but I couldn’t manage to capture the image.) It turns out you can find ties...

Bacon Beer! Yes!

Since beginning this blog, I’ve been looking around for bacon beer. Of course, right? I’ve found so many different alcohol/bacon combinations, it seemed logical that somewhere out there someone had put bacon and beer together. But alas, my past searches have only led me to a German beer called Rauchbier, which means “smoked beer.” Most Americans who try it feel there is a distinct essence of bacon about it, due to the fact that the malted barley is dried over an open flame, rather than in a kiln. In centuries past, this was a more common practice, making smokey...

Jalapeno Bacon

As I mentioned during the Bacon Day posts, Rocco from BaconFreak gave us A LOT of bacon. We had already purchased many pounds of bacon ourselves, so were not able to use it all on Bacon Day. Fortunately, this means that we get to sample it at our leisure and tell you about each one individually. Last week my husband and I busted out the Coastal Caliente Smoked Jalapeno Bacon. This appealled to my husband immediately because he loves everything to be spicy. The bacon is rubbed with a dry spice mix and dry cured. The spice mixture was...

Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

OMG! These look so good, and so easy to make. The brilliant Mr. B over at Bacon Today came up with this crafty idea, and I cannot wait to try it. Basically, you buy a tube of pre-made cinnamon rolls, unroll each one, place a strip of bacon inside and roll it back up. Cook according to the instructions on the tube and you’re done! Skulls and Bacon had the same question I did: was the bacon done enough? Mr. B says he was fine with the bacon as it was, although he admits he’s not necessarily a crispy...

Bacon Boy T-Shirts

Alexa from International Bacon Day wrote to tell me that Austin, the creator of Bacon Boy, is not doing well. As you may have read, Austin has leukemia and recently received a bone marrow transplant to battle the disease. Let’s all keep our hopes high for this brave young artist. If you feel so inclined, you can go to the Children’s Healing Art Project (CHAP) website and purchase a Bacon Boy T-shirt. The last time I checked their shopping link was having trouble, but you can place an order by emailing info@chap.name. The cost per shirt is $20, they...
