Bacon Brittle

I came home last night to find a box on the front door, and I wasn't expecting anything to be delivered. What could it be?
It was from some place called "The Grateful Palate" which sounded familiar. What was it? Mysteries abound!
In side, a nice note from misskitty14 and a belated birthday present of... BACON BRITTLE.

Those are not two words I had expected to see together, quite frankly. And yet, if the first and only commandment of the Cult of Bacon is true (Everything is better with bacon) then surely brittle with bacon is better than brittle without bacon, no? And are not baked beans with brown sugar and bacon sort of sweet, and yet simmering, savory perfection?

The bacon brittle remains unopened on my dining room table. I'm afraid of it. It's like the Ark of the Covenant. What if I open it, and it's just empty - or worse, it's so good my face melts off? It is a potent challenge to the faith of the Cult of the Bacon - the Dead Sea Scrolls of Baconarianism. Schroedinger's Brittle, where it is both delicious and not delicious.

Well anyway, if they find me melted down into a puddle - you'll know what happened.

You think too much.

...Which is not AT ALL the same thing as me saying that you are too smart or that I don't like smart men... and I forget what else.

Not AT ALL the same thing.

You may find this shocking, but I have never, ever been told that I think too much before in my entire life. Certainly not by almost all my friends, family, and prior lovers. Nope.

So try the bacon brittle already. And report back.

(I think that is an extremely cool birthday gift, BTW!)

I will, I will. In truth, I'm saving it to share with some friends. We had a rather long talk about bacon on Tuesday night - everyone in the room who was a big fan of the Perfect White Meat was fat, the one guy who didn't care for it was slim.

Hmmm.

I hear that.

You know those thin people who announce (to the general annoyance of everyone else in the room) that they "Can eat anything they want"? What they aren't telling people is that what they really *want* to eat is steamed fish and spinach salad (no dressing).

Not always true, but certainly not something that can be discounted.

Honestly, I wish I didn't take such ridiculous, sublime pleasure in good food. It would be a lot easier to not eat so much.

Well, here. Let me help. Popcorn is healthy, right?

Well, but I need my face. It's where I put the food, and where the sound comes out. And stuff.

I will be sure to tell you how it is. And also the teriyaki llama jerky.

All I have to say is... Bacon flavor candy is worth getting your face melted off for.
I am going to have to look for some now that I lost 18lbs. I deserve a special reward!

You do deserve a reward. The reward of...bacon!

Maple Bacon Coffee. I don't quite know what I think of this. *Interesting* is a word that comes to mind.

I hate maple. So, despite having bacon, - and i admit that maple with bacon is better than maple without bacon - it still doesn't sound very good to me.

Well, I heard the add and immediately thought of you. Sorry about the Maple-Hate. That would mess up the goodness of the bacon. :)
