Why Canadians Eat Bacon

20121227-114837.jpg
We woke up to snow this morning. The weather network predicted 15-20 cm; we got over 20 cm. I measured over 9 inches of snow on the back deck; that’s 23 cm. Some of the drifts are about two feet deep. After spending an hour and a half shoveling snow (do you know how many shovelfuls that is…me either, but it’s a lot) you don’t want no Special K breakfast; you want fat and stodge because you’ve just burnt like a million calories. So the reason that Canadians eat so much bacon, my neighbour and I decided this morning, is because we shovel so much snow.

    I think it’s the same no matter where you live – the harder you work, the more substantive your meals have to be. And, anyway, who needs a reason to eat bacon? My comfort foods (whether I work hard or not) are homemade bread, pasta, and free-range eggs from our chickens. Yummy!

      That list of food sounds good to me. Yummy, indeed!

      Thanks for stopping by. I loved your post on birds. I’ve been trying to take pictures of the hundreds that pass through our garden. Alas, I’m not quick enough, but they sure lift the spirits.

    The other reason to eat lots of bacon is because of that dirty trick Mother Nature played on the pig – she made ’em taste good!

    Only one thing better than a pig, and that’s a wild pig! They’re almost a pest round here, and a few places farm them, so getting hold of wild boar (or vaddisznó as they call it here) is pretty easy. They do a very fine stew with red wine here – vaddisznópörkölt (pronounced Vod Disno perkult). And there’s the famous wooly pigs too – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mangalitsa, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fyrnx44ayW0
    Now that’s a tasty piggie!

      That’s a lot of piggies! If you send the stew recipe with a photo, I can post it as a guest blog. Or perhaps you could write about the pigs of Hungary? We don’t get too many woolly pigs around here…thanks for all the great info.
