So I was talking to a friend of mine today on IM about his lunch.
He: “I have a scoop of pulled pork on the side.”
Me: “In a cone?”
(Ice cream cone, of course…)
He: “That would be tasty.”
Me: “With sprinkles.”
He: “Bacon sprinkles.”
Me: “Yeah…like twice cooked pork!”
Greats minds combine! But afterwards, I found my mind returning to the idea of…
Candy sprinkles on ice cream.
I need to get me some of that.

One big reason not to attend….
I didn’t realize being crowded together like pigs in a pen was part of the experience.
No thank you.

It’s been almost a year since The Egg dared to ask:
Why do so many people attempt to photograph the food they are eating?
I argued amateur attempts often make food and drink look — well — unappetizing. Comments in response to my post disagreed.
But I did want to share an example of some exceptional professional food photography…by Lincoln Barbour.
These four strips of bacon on a flat top grill were shot on location at Fuller’s Restaurant for a Portland Monthly feature on the city’s best breakfast.
Look at the color, the lighting, the composition. This is no simple shot of half-eaten eggs and bacon on a plate –
This is art.
That’s all I’m saying.

If any meat deserves a rhyme,
It would be pork…every time.
Oh yeah — that sings!

Uh oh. Those ‘newly married’ friends of yours have already lasted an entire year! It’s time to buy an anniversary present — what to do?
No worries — it’s Flitch Day!
According to customs that have been in place since the 15th century, any couple who can prove to a jury of bachelors and maidens that they have lived together in ‘harmony and fidelity’ during the past year gets a flitch of bacon.
(That’s a side of bacon in modern speak.)
No more checking their registry at Target. No more worrying about colors or style of decor. Agonizing about sizes is a thing of the past.
Just pass that platter of bacon to the lucky bride and groom!
(William and Kate are going to be so excited…)

I cooked last night.
Yes, this is a blog-worthy event.
I made breakfast for dinner. Biscuits — from a can, I admit — and milk gravy.
Here in New York City, the term ‘milk gravy’ is greeted with much confusion. So I will explain further in case you are also reading this with your head cocked to the side in bewilderment.
In a skillet on medium heat, I browned flour in vegetable oil. (Bacon grease is the first choice, but I didn’t have any.) To the flour, I added milk, stirring constantly over low heat.
Now, during this process, there was a lot of adjusting — how much oil, how much flour, how much milk. I even added some water at the end to thin the gravy…plus salt and pepper to taste.
But, I must say, the final product was nothing short of amazing.
Filling? Yes. Heavy? Oh yes. I even added bacon to the plate, so there’s nothing about this meal that my doctor recommends.
But it does a heart good to enjoy such a feast on a good, damp New York City night.
