The Candy Bar of Meat

The other week, while sitting over a bacon omelet and rambling on about how much I love the “bacon, egg, cheese on toast combo”, a good buddy looks across the table at me and utters a sentence I may never forget as long as I live: “Yeah, because bacon is the candy bar of meat.” -Adam McArthur

Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon. -Doug Larson

As soon as I learned what the smell of bacon was, I learned how to make it. -Rush Limbaugh

I had rather be shut up in a very modest cottage with my books, my family and a few old friends, dining on simple bacon, and letting the world roll on as it liked, than to occupy the most splendid post, which any human power can give. -Thomas Jefferson

The universal food of the people of Texas, both rich and poor, seems to be corn-dodger and fried bacon. -Frederick Law Olmstead

Veggie bacon?!? That sounds like a sign of the Apocalypse. -Turtle Dundee

If it can’t be fried in bacon grease, it ain’t worth cooking, let alone eating. -Southern proverb

I used to have trouble choking down the pills I have to take for controlling my cholesterol, but it’s a lot easier now that I wrap them in bacon. -Brad Simanek

Let’s see-Farmer Billy’s smoke-fed bacon, Farmer Billy’s bacon-fed bacon, Farmer Billy’s travel bacon… Mr. Simpson, if you really want to kill yourself, I also sell handguns! -Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, The Simpsons

I've long said that if I were about to be executed and were given a choice of my last meal, it would be bacon and eggs. There are few sights that appeal to me more than the streaks of lean and fat in a good side of bacon, or the lovely round of pinkish meat framed in delicate white fat that is Canadian bacon. Nothing is quite as intoxicating as the smell of bacon frying in the morning, save perhaps the smell of coffee brewing. -James Beard

We plan, we toil, we suffer -- in the hope of what? A camel-load of idol's eyes? The title deeds of Radio City? The empire of Asia? A trip to the moon? No, no, no, no. Simply to wake up just in time to smell coffee and bacon and eggs. And, again I cry, how rarely it happens! But when it does happen -- then what a moment, what a morning, what a delight! -J. B. Priestley

  1. Well my hubby had a spinach, onion, tomato omelet this morning with two strips of crisp bacon (that's the way he likes it) A piece of toast with butter and should have seen his face...such a smile.. and the funny thing. He has this breakfast a couple of times a week. Bacon and eggs never to get old.

    Thanks Bob...excuse me while I go get some bacon!
