Disappointing Bacon

‘Disappointing’ and ‘bacon’ in the same breath!? It was worth mentioning the first time but twice in one week!? On Monday me and Maureen cooked our bacon rolls in OC’s kitchen. The error was in my choice of bacon – I had in my hand some streaky unsmoked bacon, tried and tested, delicious. However, out of the corner of my eye I spied a package with some very lean looking bacon, organic and I took a punt, putting back the pack of deliciousness. I knew straight away that it was going to be disappointing; there was no sizzle, no  fat on it to stop it sticking to the pan; dry fried!? When it looked like it should be cooked no more (slightly browned) I popped it into the rolls; no grease soaking into the bread, just dry, chewy and unsatisfying, a real struggle. As if that wasn’t enough, today I went to Trent Park cafe with LP. We both ordered a ‘bacon bap’ – although I do know better than to have a bap, after a similar but not the same experience just a few weeks ago with H; baps are floury and disgusting; always choose a roll. The baps arrived and the bacon had been incinerated and was barely edible, I’m lucky I didn’t break a tooth. So there you have it, two disappointing bacon occasions in one week; vigilance is required.





I love bacon and what a week! I have eaten bacon every day. I had organic bacon (from Waitrose) in sesame seed rolls for lunch on Monday with Maureen. I had organic bacon (same source) for lunch by myself on Tuesday – it must be noted that organic bacon is WAY superior to any other that I have tasted; it is simply divine. On Wednesday I went to the cafe with LP (always a pleasure) and I had a toasted bacon sandwich (and a lovely hot cup of tea – they warm up the mugs with steam, so your tea stays hot until you’ve had your last bite – mind you, they have made the cups smaller recently and sometimes we need  two). On Thursday I had a toasted bacon sandwich in a Whetstone cafe with my friend Vivian – this was the most disappointing sandwich of the week; we asked for a ‘toasted bacon sandwich, white bread, no fat’, interpreted as ’empty, cold and soggy’. This morning I went to my usual cafe with Moo and we had a bacon sandwich, no fat; lovely and warm and full of bacon. Bacon makes me thirsty but it also makes me very happy. No comments please, TC!


Cow Pats From The Sky

My local cafe are very agreeable. Although there are no seats outside now (since Barnet Council refused permission), they will make an allowance and let Audrey and myself sit outside no problem; moving out a table, chairs and ketchup bottle, etc. to boot. So we settled down at our table, her daughter Little Jackie was with us and her dog Ms Pietersens, and we ordered our toasted bacon sandwiches and tea. Can’t beat a bacon sandwich and a cup of tea that stays boiling hot to the last bite.

All of a sudden, in the middle of an interesting conversation, we got splatted, it was as though a huge cow pat had fallen from above. It splatted all over Audrey and Little Jackie and missed me entirely; which was even funnier as I had changed seats with them both just a few minutes earlier.

Must say, the whole experience did put me off my sandwich.



Killing time just got a lot funnier !
