  • Bacon makes everything better

    “There’s too much bacon!” said no one ever.
    That’s my motto. I even have it on a t-shirt.  When I first moved to Kentucky in 1974, my husband and I were vegetarians. It was part philosophy, part poverty.

We looked forward to those packages of bacon so much. We started adding bacon to everything!

Some folks have not been as lucky as the rain poured down earlier in the season.
