Hamburger meat with ground in bacon

The other day, as I was stopping to pick up some meat from Oakland Bay Farm at the Olympia Farmers Market, then informed me that they are now carrying ground beef with their bacon ground into it. I've make some burgers like this before, and it came out really well, but it was a pain to do on a regular basis. Now that they are stocking it as a regular item, I can imagine including it in all sorts of recipes. Meatloaf or meatballs would be great with the bacon mixed in the meat.

Zingerman's Bacon Camp

I would really love to go to Zingerman's Bacon Camp. The guest of honor are mostly the smokemasters from small artisan smokehouses.

It's not happening this year, but maybe I can work it out next summer.

I ran out of pastured bacon

I ran out of the pastured bacon that I get at the farmer's market, and resorted to buying some dry cured bacon from the store. I can't believe how bland it is. I've gotten so spoiled with the wonderful porky flavour of the pasture raised meat, that I just can't bring myself to eat the store-bought bacon on its own anymore. It's not too bad cooked into things like a cheese strata or a bacon cheese burger, but no more bacon sides till April when the market opens back up again.

Carne asada came out too salty

The marinade for my carne asada produced a steak that was too salty, without enough of the acidity that I was looking for. It was good enough to eat, but not good enough to share the recipe. I'll have another go at it later in the week, after I make some carnitas, which I know will turn out fine.

Dry cured bacon at Costco

I made the monthly pilgrimage to Costco yesterday and was surprised to find that they are now carrying Fletcher's Dry Cured Bacon! For those of you that don't know, dry curing is the way that bacon is supposed to be made. If you look at a package of bacon in the supermarket, the second ingredient, after "pork", is "water". The only reason for processors to add water is because it is easier and cheaper for them. Who wants watered down bacon?
