ode to bacon
I tried to take food pictures, but frankly bacon and sausage is not an attractive thing to photograph. I probably could have set the pictures up better...but that would have been too much drama. I made lentil soup last night and I wanted to add this bacon. I was late getting to the shop, so it was a total gamble if I would get any bacon at all. Well, happily enough I did! I was able to buy the last pack. 2 people came in while I was paying and wanted bacon, but since I bought the last there was none to be had. They gave me the stink eye. I felt the need to defend myself. "I am only buying one pack! The man before me bought 6." Anyway I will be stock piling bacon until my family gets here for Christmas. My dad LOVES the stuff. He tried to stop by on his way out of town last time there were here and pick some up for the trip back home to NC (they have a tiny airstream trailer) but the shop was closed.
Anyway if you are ever in San Angelo, you really must try their bacon and sausage. Try the regular sausage...the jalapeno is really too hot to eat. I had heartburn for days. Put it in soup and you will be in soup heaven.
