Last time I brought up food I was living high on a diet of chicken salad sandwiches. They remain delicious, but like with anything, the new must replace the old. Since then, I dabbled in pasta. Plain pasta, pasta covered in a green-ish sauce, pasta paired with sausage or peppers or both. It became my "thing." Easy to make, simple to store, a definite choice to fill you up.
But it's been three weeks now. I'm a little burnt out on it. What once brought me joy has now brought me contempt and heartburn. So I've moved on. Enter, The Chronicles of Baconia:
Bacon, lettuce and tomato, folks. I like to add on some avocado, too, for the extra kick to the face.
Now, to be blunt, I hate the "bacon" fad going on these days. It's like the zombie craze, but for weird, ironic hipsters. Sure, it was cute when your buddy got a bar of soap that smelled like burnt pig, or the YouTube video of a guy eating his weight in it, but we're good now. We're done. It's great, it's fine, we get it.
Because really...why bacon? Admittedly, it's good. Damn good. But why not something better? If I had my choice in food obsession, I'd most likely pick ice cream. Say, with those mint chocolate chunks thrown in. Or even a big bucket of Spumoni. Have you ever tried Spumoni? Now that's the kind of food that needs it's own line of shower curtains.
Yeah, I say all that about bacon right after I post a picture of a paper-towel-sack crammed full of the stuff. Unfortunately, it really is the most delicious meat product ever. What can you do?
So that's all I've been eating these days. I'm like a horse. Just fill up my trough with the same shit, day in, day out, and I'll eat it. You'll get no complainst from me. Especially if that trough is full of BLTs.
Oh, to dream.
