THE BEATLES MEET (MEAT) BACON IN A COOL T-SHIRT:
Close up below; kind of neat. Good gift for a Beatles fan!
NEPS business travel took me to Greenwich, CT, for the Document Strategy Fourm conference. I'm just getting around to posting about it now.
Staying at the Hyatt Regency Greenwich, the former home of the Conde Nast magazine empire, I had some really great bacon.
Unfortunately, I don't recall from whence the bacon originated! I believe the staff said it was from some upstate NY farm, but I can't be sure. In any event, the Hyatt was an outstanding experience, as was the Forum.
LOU'S NATURALS: GARRETT VALLEY
This was some very good bacon. I grabbed some at the local supermarket for our dinner party; the bacon was ultimately used in salad. It crisped up really great, had superb bacon flavor and was a big hit in the kale salad. It produced a LOT of bacon fat, which I had to remove using a baster and my Pit Mitt.
Overall, 3's across the board. Recommended.
