Do I smell bacon?

I’ve always thought that bacon was a highly valuable commodity. My entire life I’ve been hearing about pork belly futures, and honestly, nothing works better as a bribe to get people out of bed. So I wasn’t too surprised to learn that even at a hippiefest like Burning Man, bacon holds it value like gold.

According to this anecdotal tale from Noelle Carter in the LA Times blogs section, bacon is king if you find yourself in a bartering situation. And speaking of the Times, they’ve been on a serious bacon high lately. The Daily Dish  has been hooking up one article after another with tons of great bacon recipes. In fact, Noelle is currently in the process of compiling a list of 1,001 things to do with bacon. Ambitious! I like it! In addition to her regular updates, you can find lots of handy bacon ideas in the comments section of her articles.

Posting will be light in the coming weeks as RBS is taking a highly-anticipated holiday break. Don’t worry, we’ll be out eating lots of bacon and documenting any zany bacon gifts that happen to be left in our stockings. While we’re gone, keep looking for tattoo ideas, and try to get a little rest. New Year’s resolutions are just around the corner and you’ll be needing all your energy.
