Celebrate International Bacon Day, September 4, 2010
We promise, it’s not a made-up holiday. International Bacon Day is a world-renowned day of celebration!
In our opinion, bacon does deserve its own day on the calendar. What would the world eat for breakfast with their eggs -who wants a plain cheeseburger, when a bacon-cheeseburger is SO much tastier – how would Grandma season her green beans, without a slice of bacon – a BLT without bacon is a yucky lettuce and tomato sandwich. Bacon rules!
For those of you who love trivia (and that’s us here at Pederson’s Natural Farms), International Bacon Day is traditionally observed the Saturday before Labor Day. Bacon Day was created in 2005 by a guy named Seth, who apparently, had little to do in life except create crazy holidays and eat bacon. We thank you Seth, it’s a great food to celebrate!
Many parties will take place during this festive bacon-season. If you are invited to one of these parties, plan to take a unique bacon dish. You cannot arrive with a pre-cooked, wilted, skillet of plain bacon, it’s simply not done. If you want to be the life of the party, we suggest you bring bacon-wrapped shrimp, bacon martinis, bacon cookies or the most sought after delicacy, chocolate-covered bacon.
No matter what your plans this year to celebrate International Bacon Day, Pederson’s is here to help. We make the absolute, best bacon on the planet. That’s a big claim for our small company; however, we are real people, producing real, natural bacon. And that’s a great reason to celebrate!
