Off Topic

As I prepare for my first annual bacon taste off, I ate some duck bacon for the first time. It isn't pork but is a thousand times better than turkey bacon.

I have a friend that can wax poetic aboot duck until the cows come home!

OT OT, I saw John Goodman on SNL Saturday, and if he turns out to be a typical Hollywood slimeball, I give UP

((Mind blown)) so there is a THIRD awesomely flavored bacon? BETTER than Turkey but NOT QUITE as delicious as pork?

You can get beef bacon from GrassLandBeef.com that tastes almost identical to the pork :)

aemish said...

Beef bacon blows turkey out of the water... yet to try the duck bacon!

What the what, what does that mean, Warecat??

WareCat said...

a coat hanger abortion TTM.

TalksTooMuch said...

Well, he is kinda old, so back then there probably wasn't much access to proper care, but that doesn't make him a sleazeball, does it?? Wait, are you saying

WareCat said...

lol!
nah, he was kind of a bully in HS, i guess, but his sister was a fukn lunatic.


learn something new everyday.

Interested in the coat hanger story. SPILL PLEASE

ANNIEOSCAR said...

Who?

TalksTooMuch said...

Thank sweet baby jeebus, Warecat, I didn't think there'd be enough brain bleach in the world.

I can see him being a bully until he found his groove, he is HUMONGOUS! His head, hid hands, just large and in charge all around. He made Bobby Monyhan look tiny

TalksTooMuch said...

John Goodman, he was just on SNL

WareCat said...

Well guys that was pretty random I gotta say.
Isn't it just smoked meat anyway?

Bacon is cured, not smoked.

It makes a lot of sense that duck bacon would be good. Duck's have a lot of fat, like pigs. Like it or not, what makes bacon delicious is all that theoretically deadly lard.

I tried Duck ala Orange (however you spell it)once. Once. Gah it was horrific and gamey.

bekH said...

Enty, Allan Benton Bacon is the best in the land. No joke!

auntliddy said...

Not a fan of the duck either. But orange chicken cant hurt anyone, lol

Good lord, you ladies are killing me! Duck is divine. Actually, farm raised duck is divine. Wild can be a crap shoot. Definitely say no to the orange sauce. Brine it for a few days, and then roast it.

Make confit from the legs. Then you can make the world's greatest PB&J sammich. Use almond butter, jalepeno jelly, and duck confit on toasted bread. I would murder Amanda Bynes' hoo-hah to get at one of those.
