As long as that doesn't become synonymous with me, I'm cool.
You do not wish to be known as the Anti-Bacon?

Hold on a minute...

Who said anything about me being the Anti-Bacon? Surely, bacon would be known as the Anti-Admiral M?

Re: Bacon Foil

Ok.. First off.. MIND. BLOWN... My love for bacon is only second (and sometimes equal to) the love I have for my children...

I'm on a major diet to lose 60 lbs .(I'm currently down 35!) so bacon is off the menu, sadly...

Second.. Teacake.. What frozen pizzas are these that you speak of.. I've yet to find one that actually featured dripping cheese...

I was eating this one tonight:

http://www.mccain.com.au/products_sn...s-600g_94.aspx

It reaches a certain point about 3 minutes past being done where the cheese starts sliding off.. this makes for delicious crispy cheese outlining the rectangle but if it was on an oven rack a lot of it would be lost. LOST.

I eat these thickly covered in chillie flakes.

They are much better and thicker and cheesier than in the picture, which is kind of weird.

Okay. Agreed. But...

I'm a vegetarian.
...why are you a vegetarian then?

Good nutrition =/= Vegetarianism.

Well, I've never particularly like meat and I can get the same nutritional benefits from a vegetarian diet, as I can from one that includes the consumption of meat.

There are far more benefits that goes with being a vegetarian too. For instance, I would say that it's much easier to handle a calorie controlled diet as a vegetarian. Meat can be filling because of the high protein content, but that's only one part of the equation.

Protein isn't as important as people make out. Sure, you need to consume some everyday as part of your diet, but you don't need to be eating vast amounts of it. Eating foods with high water content, such as soups, vegetable casseroles and salads is just as filling as eating meat and without the high calories from fat or the bad stuff that comes with meat. Meat may contain more protein, but vegetables give you more protein per calorie percentage than meat. Essentially, you are getting more of the good stuff from vegetables.

Anyway, it doesn't really matter whether a person chooses to eat meat or be a vegetarian, all that matters is looking past the manufactured bullshit and eating the best you can. If not for yourself, for the next generation.

unprocessed bacon


I (kinda) like the idea of bacon processed in such a way that it can be rolled up.

And while you're inventing that, do also invent rolls of more ordinary (~1 inch wide) bacon!
This type can then be cut in lengths that fit your frying pan and momentary need.

And, of course, a new fridge-attachment could be added: on the inside the roll of bacon is stored - in the door there's the frying attachment - and on the outside of the door there's the keypad where you type in how long a strip of freshly fried bacon you want -and the dispenser

Re: Bacon Foil

My sister and her boyfriend had been vegetarians for roughly a decade, when one night, a late nite television commercial for a locals chain's new Bacon Cheeseburger made them crack. It was, in particular, the allure of bacon which seduced them, and which ultimately saved them from a life of vegetarianism.

Ya know, I've noted that those who adopt vegetarianism on moral grounds; because they feel it's wrong to kill sensitive living things, tend to be the very same people who talk to their house-plants. Anyone else see a huge disconnect there?
