Top 5 Reasons Bacon is Better Than Girlfriends

I’m tired.

Two nights ago I only managed three hours of sleep. Would you like to know why? Of course you would!

A good friend of mine had just been dumped by his girlfriend. Needless to say, he was in dire need of consoling and I, being the good friend I am, was there to provide it – for four, long, painful hours. On a related note, if you’re thinking of dumping someone in the near future, PLEASE OH PLEASE do it before 11pm! Nothing quite says Sunday night better than a four hour “cheering up” session with a good friend from 11pm – 3am.

What I told my friend, as I’m sure any other rational-thinking human being would suggest as well, is that being without a girlfriend is all for the better. In fact, seeing how we both share the same love for bacon, I actually came up with five solid reasons why bacon is better than girlfriends.

What Happens When Bacon is Taken Away From Us Involuntarily?

This should give you a chuckle.

As we’ve demonstrated in previous articles, the relationship between bacon and some people can be an inseparable bond. If you’re like me (as I’m sure more than a few of you are seeing as this is a site created by bacon lovers for bacon lovers), then I’m sure you wouldn’t want something dear to your heart taken away from you involuntarily.

Fancy Bacon Weaving: Impress a Date With This Recipe

There’s a lot of ways to use bacon in the kitchen. Chef Rob has been showing you many delicious recipes. But for some people who don’t cook very often, these recipes can be daunting. After all, frying up bacon doesn’t require any measuring, and we don’t want to exclude anyone who doesn’t like cooking up more than that. So we’ve decided to post a “recipe” that can be made by just about everyone: bacon weaving. I love bacon, I wanted a recipe that was simple, elegant, and looked ‘hard’ to make. I had a ‘friend’ over and I needed to impress her. Besides my own personal needs, I thought the bacon weaving was pretty awesome. The video below shows a massive bacon weave. I thought if I could make a smaller version, it would look amazing and look complicated. Yet, it wasn’t complicated and it was a piece of cake.

Periodic Table of Bacon – Motivational Image

(Click image for High Resolution)

I am not a big fan of science, yes I know it has developed some amazing gadgets and some awesome innovations. I just could never memorize the Periodic Table. No matter what I did, I couldn’t memorize it. I guess my mom didn’t feed me enough bacon when I was young. Now out of vengence for not passing that Periodic Table test some off 10 years ago. I have decided to bring my love of bacon and my hatred of science together, with art!

What do you think? Was my 1980s motivational image on bacon using Periodic table overkill or do you think it is the most brilliant masterpiece you have ever seen? Obviously, I am not bias. I think Picaso and his blue era of painting has some new competition.

The Best Bacon Cocktails You Never Thought Of

While bacon-washing hard liquor to drink by itself is delicious, you can bump up the tastiness factor by making cocktails with the liquor. I am personally a beer drinker, but honestly sometimes I just want to know what a cocktail tastes like. I want to go to a bar and order 007 famous martini. After this weekend, I was in search of a drink I wouldn’t be embrassed to order. I have compiled a list of some of the best Martini’s, Cocktails and drinks that have bacon in it. I’ve left out beer because I want to do a follow up with it (plus I didn’t have time to order it). Today we’ll give you some tips and suggestions on some cocktails to make.
