14 Bacons, 1 Sandwich, All Kinds of Awesome
So, the other day some guy decided to make me jealous by getting extra bacon x10 on his Subway turkey melt. He knows I love bacon – I mean, who doesn’t? He also knows that the turkey melt is my favorite sandwich. He had this delicious sandwich for lunch that day while I had cereal, my other favorite food. I couldn’t stop thinking about all that bacon though, so I talked to my sister about it. She happens to run a restaurant and decided to hook me up.
All day today I kept getting these images e-mailed to me from Wendy’s phone. She’s quite artistic and obviously has bacon on the brain like the rest of us.
Om nom nom nom… seriously, that’s all I can say about this picture.
And here we have the pig with a black olive eye, lovingly crafted from strips of delicious bacon. Wendy, I sure hope you didn’t try to feed me something a black olive touched. You know I hate those things.
When I saw this, I really couldn’t comprehend that much bacon going on one sandwich. I didn’t know if I might be hallucinating or having an extremely good dream or if she was cooking enough bacon for a small army. I just didn’t know. I hoped it wasn’t a cruel joke.
It wasn’t a joke. This was my dinner. I ate half and showed the loser the pictures while I gloated over my 14 bacons on one sandwich. It was truly a masterpiece. I mean, usually we don’t photograph food unless it’s one of the disaster cakes Wendy likes to make for special occasions. 14 bacons on one sandwich was a special occasion in and of itself and I’m glad there are pictures to document this wonderful experience.
I ate half and saved the other part. Then later, I finished the whole damn thing. Tomorrow might be rough, but it was worth every bite.
14 bacons takes the title in the Bacon Cup, as it breaks Jason’s lame record of only 10 extra bacons. Plus, to add insult to injury, I didn’t even have to pay for this – it was a gift from my sister. So, I’m throwing down the gauntlet, issuing a challenge. If you think you can beat 14 bacons, go ahead and try it. You have to eat the whole thing and there needs to be proof of a more magnificent sandwich than this, if it exists. I don’t believe it does. I’m pretty sure I’ll hold the title for quite a while.
