Bacon Weave - Food Gypsy

Are you “bringing home the bacon”?

Published On October 2, 2011 | By Gypsy | A Slice of Life, Humor

The phrase “bringing home the bacon” has become synonymous for bringing home a paycheque and holding down a job, a modern twist on the original saying which was all about household harmony.

In the twelfth century, a church in the English town of Dunmow promised a side of bacon to any married man who could swear before the congregation and God that he had not quarreled with his wife for a year and a day.  A husband who could bring home the bacon was held in high esteem by the community for his forebearance.

Pretty much the same today fellas, a happy woman won’t complain about how much bacon you eat.   So stop arguing with her, she’s probably right anyway.  (Am I right Ladies?!)

Try the Bacon Weave; cook to halfway (350* in the oven on a rack like you see here) then sprinkle with brown sugar and pop it back into the oven to finish.  What to serve it with?  Hello… bacon goes with everything.  (*rolls eyes*)  Work with me.

Good Morning Foodie Gypsies.  Happy Bacon Sunday.

Have a slab of religion.
