International Bacon Day

Today we celebrate International Bacon Day, a holiday that IMO falls only slightly behind Christmas in significance, and definitely ranks ahead of Valentine's Day (sorry, honey). Why, you ask?
Bacon day celebrations typically include social gatherings during which participants create and consume dishes containing bacon, including bacon-themed breakfasts, lunches, dinners, desserts, and drinks.
End of discussion.

In the spirit of IBD, I offer the following link to the ultimate bacon experience - the aptly named Bacon Explosion.

The list of ingredients is elegant in its simplicity.
2 pounds thick cut bacon
2 pounds Italian sausage
1 jar of your favorite BBQ Sauce
1 jar of your favorite BBQ Rub
Preparation begins with the ever-popular bacon weave...

... and culminates in decadent yumminess.

So while you're enjoying the Labor Day weekend, take time to also celebrate International Bacon Day. After all, life's better with bacon...
