    The early settlers in Maine had slaves and in order to save money tried to put lobster on the menu almost every day. Lobster was at that time had no following and was cheap. Many lobsters were used as fertilizer in gardens. The slaves rebelled and demanded more variety. The slave owners had to give in.  I recall stories that my grandparents told me that lobsters washed ashore after Northeasters and you could walk the shore and fill up bushel baskets with them. It makes me so envious.



    They used to serve it in prisons too.

    True.

    Lobster was once a nuisance catch.

    A) i like Bacon

    B)  i love Bacon

    C)  Bacon is so delicious it should be it's own food group

    D) i hate Bacon




    Finally a good topic around here!!   I'd have to go with 'A'.  While I do enjoy bacon on occassion, it's not my go to for anything and honestly...I don't like it alone.  I like it as a 'flavor enhancer' like on a burger or sandwhich, chopped up in mashed potatoes, or on a nice cobb salad.  I really do not understand the huge explosion of bacon as of late....I also didn't understand the huge 'zombie' facination but luckily that has seemed to simmer down lately.

    As mentioned earlier in this thread, there's a place in Portland, Maine right on the edge of the Old Port called Nosh.  Not too long ago they would incorporate Bacon into EVERY one of their dishes.  It's actually a really good place and not a cheep little garbage place (they've been recognized and showcased on Food Network a bunch of times).  I HIGHLY recommend going there if you're in the area and like Bacon.  If you're with somebody who watches their cholesterol and sodium levels....they serve other stuff too.

    I'd go with C. I love bacon.

    However, I'm not big with using bacon as a condiment of sorts on something else -- bacon cheeseburger. They're OK, but I'd probably just order regular cheeseburger.

    But bacon and eggs in the morning -- I could eat that every morning, good thick cut bacon.

    There is.

    Sadly, it's really not that good.  Too much ice cream, not enough bacon.

    Where I come from, we go with Irish bacon on our burgers.

    Bacon is reserved for eggs.

    C-  Bacon is great.  I especially love the smell of bacon. 

    A nice fresh turkey club bagel (with no mayo) at Bruggers is perfect for breakfast/lunch/dinner. 

    https://www.brueggers.com/menu/bagels

    I received a look of hatred from an Econ professor at Carolina when I brought this exact sandwich to class.  In his defense, I opened the wrapper and it made that crinkly sound that echoed throughout the classroom.  I believe that he was an 'exchange' professor from Australia.  I wrote this crazy paper about the various fed (federal reserve) chairmen that I thought was quite good.  He gave me the worst grade that I received in College (C+) without any explanation and then took off 'down under'.  I sent my paper to the head of the Econ department and asked that he review my paper and reconsider my grade as it skewed my major GPA.  The head of the Econ department refused as he said that the teacher could not defend his grade.  It still gets me going 15 years later (UNC class of 1999).

    Anyway, I digress.  I do love bacon....  and bagels.  The Rosemary Olive Oil bagel from Brueggers is glorious.

    Hey, it's the elitist, Amphole. He's so sad that he's richer than the rest of us. 

     

     




     

    Hey, nice to hear from you.  Had any success lately? Or, are you still watching the parade go by?  Don't you WANT to be financially comfortable?  Or, do you want to continually feel bitterness toward anyone who is?  I'm happy I've got a few bucks.

    The wife and I are planning our west coast trip this summer to Oakland and Seattle.  We'll have to fly directly from one city to the other. It's going to be very tiresome..:).  We're also not sure how many trips to Fenway and other parks in the country to make.  It's a very stressful decision...:).  Our only concern is who will feed the cats for us while we're gone.

    Life is good.  I wish you felt the same...seriously...really.  I really wish you didn't feel so bitter because of our 'relative' success. 

    If you wish to think we're elitist because of that....so be it.

    Believe me, it's much better feeling the way I do than what I hear from you.

    OK...I'm lying.  I'm actually signed up for Obamacare and I'm two months behind in the mortgage..  Feel better?  I assume that this is what you'd prefer what I'm experiencing.  It's obviously not a desire to obtain some financial freedom to join the ranks of us 'elitists'.

    I'd bet it was the same with bacon.  I saw a show on it and it came from a weird spot on the shoulder I think, and looks awful before you slice it.
