It’s finally here!!
A while back I declared the closest Saturday to my birthday, Saint Bacon’s Day. I have always loved bacon, but have over the last couple of years really embraced it. Thanks to our adventurous cooking and baking, our gang of pork lovers have had all sorts of things made with bacon…cupcakes, brownies, cookies…last year I even got homemade bacon jam and fudge for my birthday!
So to celebrate the inaugural Saint Bacon’s Day, my friends decided to have Porkapocalypse – a travelling dinner party! First we’ll start at our house and then bike to the other houses for appetizers, meals and dessert. The only catch is, everything has to have one key ingredient – PORK!
I was even inspired to do a linocut print for the occasion.
So, maybe you are celebrating some other thing this weekend, like say Queen Victoria’s birthday (if you happen to live in Canada)…but I urge you to consider celebrating Saint Bacon’s Day as well, because after all, who can argue the greatness of bacon?
