If your lust for bacon wasn’t satisfied by last week’s Bacon & Scallops recipe, try Food Renegade’s Bacon and Avocado Egg Salad.

Or if bacon’s not your thing, if you desire more fruits and veggies, the beautiful food photography of Primal recipes from Joyful Abode will be sure to make your mouth water.

The Onion’s recent “food and dining” issue contains a smorgasbord of satirical gems. Read the latest and fakest about Taco Bell, Frito-Lays, Keebler Elves, Little Debbie, and one complex food pyramid.

And finally, a cautionary tale of alcoholic vervet monkeys, courtesy of the BBC.

I just made a $25 donation to to help Larry Haubner be able to stay in his assisted living facility.
