  1. hi meg! isn't bacon bad for you? i see that it is on this week's shopping list too...

  2. for me personally, i don't think it's the bacon as much as the type of bacon (pork vs turkey). i'm not a huge fan of pork - i try to avoid it as much as possible, though there are arguments for pork bacon, especially the rendered fat--more on this next week! what I usually do is cook some pork bacon once a month or even less, and save the grease to cook the turkey bacon for a nice flavor!
