you're bacon me crazy!

I received my latest bacon of the month club shipment today and it contained 4 packages of bacon! I know they do not ship in the summer, but this really might be too much at once! And it also means I won't get fun packages again until October! To make things worse, our fridge is on the fritz so I had to store the bacon in the freezer portion. We haven't had ice cubs in a couple days but I hope it'll keep things cool. My box of bacon included:

• Nodine's Bayou Brand Bacon from Torrington, CT (June 2005)

• Hempler's Peppered Bacon from Bellingham, WA (July 2005)

• Carlton Farms Dry Cured Bacon from the Oregon Coast (August 2005)

• Kolozsvari Smoked Bacon from Vernon Hills, IL (September 2005)

I'm most looking forward to the Peppered Bacon - the slabs are like a 1/4" thick! The Bayou Brand looks intriguing, but I've not known Conneticut to be bayou country.

So who's grilling? I am only going to eat wrapped in bacon foodstuffs for the rest of the summer. Scallops, pineapple, oysters? What else would be good with smoked pork lovin'?

you know, our freezer is pretty roomy... and only a few blocks away! (heh heh)
This is probably old news to you but I was going through some old magazines last week - did you see that issue of Saveur with the bacon recipes? Bacon Tempura. Peanut Butter and Bacon Truffles. Billionaire's Bacon. Stilton and Bacon Cheesecake. oh my god.

these posts serve as a constant reminder of the fact that i don't eat enough bacon. i'll have to see what kind of bacon delicacies Eagle has for purchase.

as for things to wrap in bacon, i like the irony of a veggie dog with bacon. or i could see bacon in with falafel or hummus. or maybe the ultimate: bacon-wrapped pickles!

There used to be a tapas place in my neighborhood that served bacon wrapped dates. Each was also filled with an almond - damn tasty.
