Parts of the Pig that are Delicious

Disclaimer: I’m well aware that there are people who for religious/dietary/personal reasons do not eat pork. This isn’t meant to offend, and if it does, maybe you shouldn’t be on a blog that is called Bacon is Magic.

A few people raised eyebrows when they heard my blog name, although those that know me well aren’t surprised.

They’ve seen strangers drool over my t-shirt with the graphic above on it; it’s definitely a crowd pleaser.

Bacon is delicious.

I cook quite a bit and when things go awry I often just throw some kind of pig product into the recipe.

My vegetarian minestrone tastes 100 times better with bacon. I learned to love brussels sprouts because of pancetta.

A BLT wouldn’t be much of a sandwich if it were just an LT.

Bacon is a universal truth, okay not completely universal, but many cultures across the world use some sort of pig flavour to enhance food.

And when you get down to it, food is an expression of culture.  I’m going to spend the next year enjoying these expressions.

So the name of the blog refers to learning different cultures while traveling and will include a lot of food

I’ll probably eat more than my fair share of pig – but not bacon on its own.

Oddly enough, it’s amazing as an ingredient but I don’t like to eat bacon on its own. I don’t love the texture – unless it’s pancetta or other charcuterie.

But that’s another post in itself.

  1. I always wondered about that. What does bacon have to do with travel? But what I think does not matter, only what you think.
    The beautiful thing about a blog is that you can do whatever you want and name it whatever you want. Definitely a memorable title! You won’t be confused with anyone else.

    Vegeequarian? Reminds me of scallops and bacon. Soooo good…

    As a vegequarian, I don’t touch bacon, but turn that pig into a trout – I’m there. But trout and minestrone, not appetizing. 🙂

  4. I think the blog title is pretty funny, you would never be mistaken for another travel site! The t-shirt design is pretty funny too, did you do that?

      I love graphic tees but have no where near the skill needed to design them. I found this through a food site I subscribe to and decided I had to have it.

    Yea, the best topping for vegetarian dishes in my opinion is definitely meat =) I’m not picky though, any kind of meat is usually good for me.
