Bacon. Do it. Get the best quality you can and use it sparingly (for high quality=high price). But savor it when you do use it and save that bacon grease! The stuff is an unheralded byproduct of bacon that you can use in many meals and make things taste like bacon (which is never a bad thing). So, to recap: High quality Bacon is good. Save the bacon grease. Add to other meals to make them more awesome.
Rinse and repeat as often as desired. Best of luck to you and your bride. Primal FTW
