    they're huuuuge slices.

    stovetop. felt wasteful to bake 4 slices of bacon even though oven bacon is just about the best thing next to camping stove bacon.

    cooking tip: cool pan, add a bit of hot water, put in bacon, heat up pan on medium heat, wait until water steams away, flip bacon a lot to get perfectly browned and crisp but still chewy.

    beef.

    Though the product contained much less fat than bacon, it was still 37% fat by weight, causing complaints that the "lean" name was not accurate. - Wiki

    a good butcher is as important to have as a good barber.

    two professions that are going away in our disposable walmart society.

    i went to the farmer's market this morning and got muffins, a donut, some amish baked goods, some produce, and some maple syrup, and then stopped at the grocery store and butcher shop to make something nice for my gf because she was cool last night.

    Twas fucking awesome. The sammich was, loaf challah, homemade cherry preserves, homemade peanut butter, applewood smoked bacon and jalapenos. It was then brushed with ghee and grilled. The other sammy was peach jam and local honey and pnut butter.
