Bacon Backfires!

With Valentine's Day behind us and no need to keep things a secret anymore, I can share with you my miserable failure of a gift for Dick, my boyfriend ~ well, I should say part of a gift ~ I gave him a book he did like too. At any rate, I've mentioned before about how Dick just loves bacon, so when I saw these bacon beans, I thought they would be the perfect solution ~ cut out some fat without having to give up a favorite food ~ I had envisioned his breakfast as a plate of scrambled eggs, a piece of toast and several bacon beans ~ yum! Alas, apparently they do NOT taste the same as bacon even though they are approved by Mr. Bacon himself!

I still think my choice of the bacon beans was probably a better choice than the soap I was considering ~ the more I thought about it, I didn't think it would be wise to slather him up in the soap and have him anywhere near the scots ~ afterall, they are bacon lovers as well!

Little did I know there were so many bacon themed gifts out there ~ you can try those shown above and more here. Let me know what you think of the lip balm, the dental floss or Uncle Oinker's bacon mints. If you want to be stylish with your bacon fetish, you can get yourself a lovely vinyl bacon belt which should round out anyone's wardrobe. Next occasion I think I will just stick with Mo's Bacon bar or some other gourmet bacon and chocolate combination ~ I have actually tasted a few versions and it can be pretty tasty ~ although probably even more calories and fat than just plain bacon, so kind of defeats my devious plan to remove some fat from our diets ~ curses!
