Forget the Ice Bowl -- I Give You The Bacon Bowl!


sugaronsnow     Most Canadian children go through a traditional rite of spring as soon as they can say the word “maple”. Each year in the month of March they are either led by their parents or have to endure some god forsaken field trip to a sugar shack in the middle of the woods. Then one of the culinary miracles of Canada takes place and they are introduced to something called “sugar on snow”.













tim     My father used to delight in making this for us every year using the very snow that the cats had peed on. Years have passed, and spring now means that the Tim Horton’s Maple Double Dip Donut is in season and Canadians rejoice!  Anything maple flavored screams Canada and even Trader Joe’s caters to transplanted Canadians in the U.S. by offering mock Maple Leaf Cookies on their shelves.



So it was of great delight in 2011 to see Denny’s offering up their new "heart attack on a plate" menu of bountiful bacon meals with a hint of maple called "Baconalia". Yes their sacred festival of bacon offered something called: “The Maple Bacon Ice Cream Sundae” and I was gung ho to try it.





As I looked at the Denny’s website I  noticed that they were proud sponsors of AARP. I found that quite strange due to the vein clogging menu they serve. Are they are working hand in hand with the government? Every day we hear that the "health system"  is overloaded, so as I looked at their new special of a hamburger plate with endless pancakes, I decided one had to wonder about the whole darn thing. Did they create this new "Baconalia" menu to get rid of the overflowing senior population like myself?










The waitress assured me when she brought my sundae that we would be very pleased. I secretly thought that I might not make it to dessert and they might have to Medevac me out of there. But I succeeded and the sundae was presented with two large spoons and loads of napkins.The savory/sweet mix was wonderful and after they discontinued it I knew the sweet memories would hold me until the last days of my life-- until today.



A foodie site called "Just Martha" has captured the ultimate in a bacon recipe and she has called it "Bacon Cups". My arteries are not thanking you, and I curse any of you who are thinking of substituting turkey or "fakin" bacon. Words cannot describe the brilliance of this recipe!








After looking at these pictures I think we can agree we can all go home now, as the pinnacle of food blogging has been reached. This is the greatest $%^&*^% recipe anyone has ever had in the history of the universe. Denny's eat your heart out! Just Martha has just ensured that an entire army of cardiologists will be able to finance that new yacht they have had their eye on. This recipe will change lives and most certainly your cholesterol level.


Just in case this is just not enough for you William Wei from The Business Insider has taken it to the nth degree.

Sacramento has a bacon fest every Feb, although no one here is big in raising or processing any pork products. It's not a lot more than price fixe dinners at snooty restaurants I avoid.

In my life I have found Neuske's from Milwaukee is the only bacon worth eating. Unless someone else cooks bacon and puts it in front of me. Then I eat it. Bacon is irresistible.

BTW, make sure the sugar sack attendant does not have a dog.

My mom grew up in NE Wisconsin (Yes, pretty close to Green bay) when Paul Bunyan was still at work in the local forests. She took us out for the maple-in-snow candy. It was good.

I was  wondering if my Steve would have to turn the page quicklybecause of his faith and the bacon hahah

OK, I admit my view of bacon is rather one-sided and non-orientable. . .

If you try to lick the salt offa this one, you can go on forever. Yay!
