It's Time


Though it is November I will mourn the last of my summer traditions that will end today. I will reclaim the tradition next summer when we feast on corn on the cob, water melon, black berries and garden fresh everything. Today, in a few moments I will consume my last BLT of 2008.

The tomatoes are still coming on in the greenhouse and I could continue having BLTs for another month or so, but my dance with bacon is ending. Like any guy, I could probably eat bacon every day; every meal, but my wife is the bacon police. She keeps track and she knows I purchased three packages of it this season. She told me, “That’s it for bacon this year.” If I buy it again I know I’ll have hell to pay.

It’s just better for me to hold back, plant tomatoes early next year and long for the day that color comes onto the fruit. I will rush to the market to get some thick sliced pepper or maple bacon and see how much bacon I can get away with next year.

You might give Boletus Lettuce & Tomato a try. Sliced and sauteed savory King Bolete makes for a delightful substitute in my book, and there are some BIG ones out there right now under the Spruce trees.

Auntie, STFU!

Dalia, I do need balance in my life.

Walt, yep pork police want me to live longer so I can continue serving. Canadian bacon is basically ham, but if you are talking back bacon, I can't have that.

Anon, I don't trust mushrooms. Really, I can wait until next year, and I'm getting sick of all the tomatoes, too.

Other anon, please don't. BTW I love it when you call me honey ; )

Moose, You know I want to move to Canada, I'm just getting ready in advance.

Darev, there too I'm limited to three eggs a week by doctors orders.

If only women would wear bacon perfume, they could rule the world.

Bacon police. I like the sound of that. Apparently, in California, it's now a law (Prop 2).
