World's Best Bacon is from Wisconsin

MY LIFE WITH BACON continues this week with a trip last weekend to Scottsdale. We spent the weekend at the incredible Four Seasons, took in a Cubs game, and treated ourselves to spa treatments and great food. This was all courtesy of Debbie's employer.

Of course, a highlight of the weekend was a visit to Proof - an awesome canteen at the hotel. Spacious, with an outstanding selection of American liquor, Proof is a destination whenever you're in the area. One evening, they featured a bacon-themed cocktail hour.

Naturally, it was very much worth checking out. I started with a great gin and club, and then switched to the featured whiskey - Campfire - neat, of course. The bacon was from - you guessed it - Nueske's. My favorite 'special' bacon.

Afterward, I of course had to purchase a T-shirt. The lovely and super-friendly Kyle helped us .

Of course, we got room service breakfast the next morning, which was equally awesome.

And when I got home, I naturally had to procure some from Sunset Foods, and bake it in the oven. The bacon basically melted in my mouth. Best. Bacon. Ever.

Of course, there is plenty of bacon news to report, but it'll have to wait for a future post.

Eat your bacon!
