Bacon Vodka - A Dream of Others

I feel like I'm talking about bacon all the time now. Strangely, I'm not even a bacon lover. Regardless, here's a tidbit about BACON VODKA dedicated to those who love bacon (my many friends) and those who love vodka (me). Since I'm an avid flavored-vodka creator, I know what gift the bacon lovers in my life will soon receive. I'll let them ponder how to use this in a cocktail.

Chicken Fried Yum

As an homage to my many bacon-obsessed friends, the wonders of fried food, and my own love of Texas, I give you chicken fried bacon from Texas. For those unfamiliar with the term "chicken fried," it essentially means that the item is made like fried chicken, or coated with a flour batter of sorts and fried. Texans, likely bored with simply grilling up a steak, have made the "chicken fried steak," served with a side of white gravy, an integral part of Texas culinary traditions.

That brings us to
this video, telling the wonderous story of chicken fried bacon. Watch and enjoy. I think Anthony Bourdain would be proud of this. Travel Channel execs, please take note (and include me on this shoot if you go). And thanks, John.

Pull up a POÄNG and have a listen... this crazy tale of a nutter living in the IKEA in Paramus, NJ this week. Is this performance art? Hope he doesn't OD on lingonberry drink.

Heck, anything is better than watching Hulk Hogan's bastardization of American Gladiators. He took something that was beautiful and turned it into network TV schlock. A travesty.
