NO NO NO! Did I just read that right? A bacon shortage????? Holy Cow- or should I say Holy Pig! I LOVE bacon! Matter of fact, I think it should be a condiment and have all the restaurants put a bowlful of bacon on each table! YUM!!!!
I was reading Yahoo News, when up pops the ugly headline “Bacon Shortage” Of course that got my attention. I don’t think I will be able to survive a bacon shortage. I just LOVE bacon! Bacon and eggs, BLT’s, bacon wrapped filets, bacon bits in my salad and on my potatoes and I just recently fell in love with Burger Kings “Bacon Chocolate Sundaes”! What will I use instead of bacon? Beef bits? Beef jerky? UGH!
Maybe I should look into raising pigs! I am sure my neighbors would adore me even more! New problems will arise if I do raise pigs. What will the cost will be for a pen, a mud hole and fencing? PLUS, knowing me, I am pretty sure I would become so attached to the piglets, that when they grew up I wouldn’t be able to take them to the meat packing plant.
There seems to be only one way to get my bacon. Anyone want to go halvsies on a porker? I only want the bacon…..ok, maybe a chop or two….. Oh, and a ham, I do love the shoulders, and don’t forget the tenderloin! On second thought, maybe I should just buy my own pig.
Wow..... first a bacon shortage….what next an egg shortage? That will just crack me up!
