Pork barrel spending

A Bacon avocado. The actual name of the variety, a BLT gone askew.

So I had to go look online after buying one, and of course Jim Bacon was the grower who developed it, it comes by the name honestly (pretty much).

But wait, it gets interesting: there’s a plain old Bacon avocado and a Jim Bacon avocado. The guy was on a roll here.

Couldn’t he have called them something like, maybe, Jim’s Best and Jim’s Almost As Good Hey I Tried or something? Looking at a bin of these is now going to be like trying to figure out whether you’re about to buy a merino yarn or a merino merino yarn.

But somehow the one avocado I bought, whichever of the two types it is, badly wants to live up to the power of its suggestiveness and at least be sprinkled with some bacon bits tomorrow. Milk Pail really should have a little mini-fridge set up next to the vegetable bins with a pound of sliced ready-to-fry to go with. Pork belly futures, there you go.

Catching up on your blog today, and now I want bacon…and avocado…and a hamburger to put them on, but I digress. 🙂 Glad to hear that your niece’s tests have ruled out some of the scary, sorry to hear of your passing deductible, and so fun to see the bouncy boys! You sure have a way about packing a lot of life into just a few words. Is that why the Hippies have to use the aft entrance? They’re too wordy? Man?

Love and hugs to you from me!

The mongo avocado pit I planted last autumn has produced a nice plant. It’ll only be a lovely houseplant here,… but, ….
you know what needs to be done. Toothpicks, glass, water ….

ok, so that would make that sandwich a BLAT (bacon, lettuce, avocado, tomato)?

seems I’m short a couple of ingredients (unfortunately!!)

I just finished supper, and that still makes me want a BLT-A…
