In Memory of Thanksgivings Past

I give you a bird in a bird in a bird in a bird in a bird in a pig.

…and bacon strips, and bacon strips, and bacon strips, and bacon strips…

MEAT!

Yesterday, I was given about 30 pounds of meat, probably two-thirds of it home-grown bacon, and most of the rest in deer sausage. What am I going to do with 20 pounds of bacon? Seriously, I’m taking suggestions. I’m contemplating bacon and eggs for breakfast and BLT’s for lunch for the next year, but that might get a little old.

That’s after I stuffed most of it into the freezer.

It’s about 1/4″ thick!
On a related note, I love my ranch friends.  And their attempts at dieting.

NEVER STOP!

 There is no such thing as too much bacon!

This is the weirdest web comic I’ve seen for a long time.  If you enjoy very random humor, look at Nedroid Comics.

You Take My Bacon, I Take Your Thumbs. It’s an Even Trade

Let me start off by showing you a picture.  This picture is the background of my phone, so I see it everyday.  I see it and I love it.

Can you see it?  The luscious, hot, dripping fat, clinging to a crispy, tasty, and salty bacon?  What you see here was two pounds of premium bacon before I fried it into its metamorphosed state.  That’s right.  What was once two pounds of gooey caterpillar was transformed into it’s beautiful butterfly form.  I could go on, but I probably shouldn’t.  We’d be here all day.

So when I say that this issue cuts me deep, please believe me.

From Alan at Snarkybytes comes something most interesting.  Something evil is in the air.  Something so despicable that I had to put down my thoughts in comic form.  The nanny state has been moving into total control territory at a rapid pace lately, and I’m sure many of you have heard stories about the government trying to regulate foods with “high” amounts of sugar, fat, and salt.  Fat and salt, the two things that make bacon what it is.  Here it is, my next political comic:

This will be the straw that breaks this camel’s back.

Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don’t care, I’m still free
You can’t take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain’t comin’ back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can’t take the sky from me
There’s no place I can be
Since I found Serenity
But you can’t take the sky from me… 

Is now

Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don’t care, I’m still free
You can’t take the BACON from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain’t comin’ back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can’t take the BACON from me
There’s no place I can be
Since I found BACONITY
But you can’t take the BACON from me…

(Apologies to Joss Whedon, but I’m sure he’ll understand)

Super Mega Ultra Camping Photo Post

Over the weekend, as a sendoff for summer, some friends and I went camping. We were initially going to go into the Crazy Mountains, but the little blue Subaru we were in only had 5 inches of ground clearance, and there were 7 inches of snow. Shoulda driven my Jeep. So we went south instead, to the Absarokas south of Big Timber. There was still too much snow up high for a good hike, but we made it as far as we could.

First:  Food.  One of the many things we ate were Hobos.  Basically, you put a bunch of meat and vegetables into a foil packet and cook it on the coals, like so:

I love car camping.  We went through $75 worth of groceries.  One of the other things we ate goes right along into the food category, as seen at Borepatch and here.  Bacon.  I think we ate a pound of bacon apiece.  With the grease, my friends (I claim no responsibility) decided to fry some carrots.

Carrot Bacon Explosion!  They claimed that the carrots tasted great.  I did not try them.  I value my life.  If you follow my freinds’ examples, do not blame me for your hospital bills.

Next, there was the hike.  There were too many trees to see very many grand vistas and too much snow to get above the treeline, but I got some nice pictures of some bear tracks.  We followed them almost the whole way.  I figured they were probably from the late afternoon before.

That’s my boot down in the corner.  This bear was about twice as big as the one Michael Bane’s Wife saw here.  That one was a black bear (at least, to my knowledge, there are no Grizzlies in CO) and the track we saw were probably from a Grizzly Bear.  My room mate, bless his heart, brought along his Sig .380, which would probably be just enough to edge the bear from angry to really angry.  But we didn’t see the bear, so all is well.
 

 
There’s the two guys I went with.  I have pictures with me in them, but why would I give away my secret identity?  Maybe sometime.

This was from the drive out.  It was a good weekend.  Bye Montana! See you next semester.
