bee bacon

i'm making bacon for lunch. to be technical, more of a pre-lunch-type snack. and it just reminded me that i had a dream last night about my favorite brand of bacon, which i have fondly nicknamed "bee bacon," because the packaging used to feature a cartoon bee on it (i suppose because it's "honey cured"). when they took the bee off the packaging a few months ago, it was really confusing to me, since i had never bothered to learn the actual name of the product. but i recently re-discovered it in its new form, sans bee, and i have re-stocked up. (i have one pound in the fridge and two pounds in the freezer. just in case the big one hits.) but it was really depressing and stressful for that period when i was convinced that either the manufacturer had discontinued it, or safeway had stopped selling it. i love bacon, but i'm very particular about what kind i make.

so anyway, i just remembered that i had a dream last night where i was in some store that had a huge display with a big sign saying "Bee Bacon" - i think they were selling it in bulk - and in the dream i didn't remember that i had already in real life been reunited with bee bacon in its new form, so the dream-discovery made me really really happy.

postscript: wow, the irony is that i just burned the bacon i was cooking because i didn't turn it while writing this. oh, the sacrifices i make for my art...

    I'm pretty sure you were still dreaming when you wrote this.

    My sister was making some bacon this past weekend that has been pre-soaked in maple syrup. I hate the smell of maple syrup, but the wonderful smell of bacon is one of the hardest parts of being vegetarian, so it worked out perfectly. It stank like ass.

    Thanks a million for bringing Daily's to my attention! After years of Oscar Meyer thick cut, I bought it because of this blog entry and it is now my new favorite by a long shot!!!!
