What we learned about this week: Bacon!

This week the girls wanted to learn all about natures candy meat- bacon! 

Bacon (noun) the main reason we are not vegetarian. 

Reagen's Super Bacon! 

Hannah's Bacon being attacked by Toby!  

"I've got to bring home the bacon."
"I almost lost my bacon."
"Today I saved someones bacon."

No one describes bacon better than comedian, Jim McGaffigan. 

“Bacon’s the best. Even the frying of bacon sounds like applause. Yay BACON!”

"I just had some bacon. Anybody ever had bacon before? It's good. Oh, my greasy lover, bacon. It's the best!"

"You wanna know how good bacon is? To improve other food, they wrap it in bacon. If it weren't for bacon, we wouldn't even know what a water chestnut is. "Thank you bacon. Sincerely, Water Chestnut III.""

"And bits of bacon, bits of bacon are like the fairy dust of the food community. "You don't want this baked potato? Brrring! Now it's your favorite part of the meal. Not interested in the salad? Bibbity bobbity BACON. I just turned it into an entree.""

"But once you put bacon in a salad, it's no longer a salad. It just becomes a game of 'find the bacon in the lettuce'. It's like you're panning for gold. Eureka!"

"There is something dishonest though about putting bacon in a salad - it's kind of like smoking while you jog. "I want the BLT, but I'll just get a salad with bacon and tomato. Can you put it between two pieces of toast and stick a toothpick through it? That'd be great...""

"It's amazing the shrinkage that occurs with bacon. You start with a pound, you end up with a bookmark."

"But bacon is that good. I bet if you put bits of bacon on a strip of bacon, you could travel back in time. It's like a tasty vortex."
More bacon quotes: 

“I’ll have the smiley face breakfast special. Uh, could you add a bacon nose? Plus bacon hair, bacon moustache, five o’clock shadow made of bacon bits and a bacon body.” - Homer Simpson

“When you have bacon in your mouth, it doesn’t matter who’s president or anything…Every time I’m eating bacon I think, I could die right now, and I mean it. That’s how good life is.” - Louis CK

“Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon.” - Doug Larson

Bacon has become quite a craze: ThinkGeek as a great bacon collection! 

Bacon bits: 

There is a difference between traditional bacon & Canadian bacon. Canadian bacon is often called back bacon. 

Alternatives: soy bacon or turkey bacon. "I think we can all agree the turkey bacon experiment was a failure." -Jim McGaffigan 

It's a fact: dogs love bacon! 

There is a bacon song: 

Bacon in history: 
The word 'bacon' originated from the modern English language that 
dates back to the Saxon era in the 1st millennium AD.  Bacon (or bacoun as it was spelt then) was a Middle English-11th/14th Century, High/Late Middle Ages. Bacon refers to a traditional cut of pork meat unique to the region at the time at the time.
The phrase "bring home the bacon" was first said in 12th century England in the spirit of matrimonial harmony. Now the phrase bring home the bacon has evolved into meaning generate household income.
