I just joined the bacon movement

I know it's a cliche to talk about bacon. It's become almost trendy. I don't know when it started but I've seen this bacon reverence on other blogs and I always thought it was kind of silly, as if bacon is somehow a MOVEMENT. Not just a pork product but something to actually believe in.

I'd never bought bacon, though. Eaten it, yes; cooked it, no. I recently purchased a pack of applewood-smoked bacon, however, and thought I'd cook it up with some pancakes. Matthew reminded me that it's really messy and that deterred me for a minute until I decided to just microwave it between some paper towels.

And that shit was TASTY.

I'm not exaggerating when I say that I've thought about bacon every day since then. Last night I caved and made a salad and put bacon on top of it. Eating it, I felt such elation that I thought "Between bacon and Barack, the world is going to be okay."

Yo. Rem taught me this awesome way to cook phefuckingnominal bacon with minimal mess. Place wax paper on a cookie sheet (the kind with sides or you'll have grease in your oven for evah) Liberally sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes or until the bacon looks candied and like it won't give you trichinosis. Shit MELTS in your mouth. Toss wax paper, soak pan, wipe clean later. Voila!
