This was my lunch today.


(Sorry for the picture quality - it was taken with a cell phone and the light wasn't the best.)

Sharkey’s Wing and Rib Joint, one of my favourite restaurants in town, has regular weekly specials. Monday’s are “Free burger day” – when you order a burger you get a coupon for a free burger that you can use on any other visit. That right there is the “Blacksburger”, a full 1/2 pound of fresh ground beef, with American cheese and Bacon(!). I usually get the Mushroom, Onion, & Swiss Burger, but today I had a craving for a bacon cheeseburger. You know how, when you bite into something really, really GOOD, you just close your eyes and make that “Mmmmm” sound? Yeah, that was me with this. It was so good I knew I had to blog about it as soon as I smelled it. Tasting only reinforced that decision.

You may now seethe in jealousy.  😀



Well, sort of. Bacon flavour, anyway.

Bacon is, of course, culinary perfection. But I honestly expect this to taste artificial and bad. It’s an interesting idea, though.

Not much today, just a couple of links.

Northern Mexico is still a war zone.

PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Mexico – Gunmen stormed a party in northern Mexico on Sunday and massacred 17 people, authorities said.

The gunmen arrived at the party in Torreon in several cars and opened fire without saying a word, the Coahuila state Attorney General’s Office said in statement. At least 18 people were wounded.

That’s all I’ve got, right now.

Behold, the power of Bacon!
