Travels in the South

Sometimes the best treat can be the easiest treat.  Really it can.  Let’s look at this week’s edition of Travels in the South.  Mom/dad found something that even this oinker can wrap his piggy jowls around and enjoy fully.  Two words for you – strawberry shortcake.  Understand now?  Look at that deliciousness.  So simple yet so delicious.  Don’t let the bare basics fool you.

This pure awesomeness is made out of simple sliced pound cake covered with sliced strawberries, strawberry syrup and topped with whip cream.  How could you not want to lick the plate… and you do, don’t you?  I won’t tell anyone.

And this dessert is just wonderful for the heat outside.  A simple dessert to eat for dessert or like mom did, for dinner – snorts with piggy laughter.

Check back with me next week my friends for another edition of Travels in the South.

Travels in the South

Welcome my friends to another edition of Travels in the South.  This weeks find is something sinful.  It is something so delicious that you and your spouse will fight over the last bite.  Heck, you might even want to get your own slice of this heaven so you don’t have to share.

This week’s find is called Sogno Di Cioccolata –  translation “Chocolate Dream”  Now look at that picture.  Isn’t that the best way to describe it?  Chocolate Dream.  Are you asking yourself what is in this masterpiece?  It’s a rich fudge brownie covered with a chocolate mousse and topped with fresh whipped cream and drizzled with chocolate sauce.  Oh, did I mention that it’s also sitting in a puddle of rich chocolate?  Mom/dad always share one of these delicious creations because it is so rich and heavenly.  But they do fight over the last bite… or should I say they play paper – rock – scissors.  Snorts with piggy laughter.

So my friends, if you have a Carrabba’s Italian restaurant near you, make some plans to try this delicious creation.  It’s on their dessert menu ❤

Bacon’s Show and Tell


Hello Friends – Wasn’t last month Bacon’s Show and Tell full of fun and misadventure – snorts with piggy laughter.  I think it was a snort of a great time – especially seeing my daddy taking a potty break.  I mean heck, he’s caught me in film in plenty of embarrassing moments.

I think that since last month was a hoot with all of you too, let’s do a repeat.  Find another embarrassing picture or story of your humans and share with us on

This month the story is about mom and dad.  Hold on my friends – it’s hilarious.

You see mom and dad dated for a long time before they got married.  We all know that.  But this story happens when mom had been together say about five years.  Daddy’s mom/dad took mom/dad out to lunch one weekend.  So there they were at a local Bennigan’s.  They had finished dinner and was fixing to order a dessert.

Bennigan’s at the time had this dessert called Death by Chocolate.  Something so delicious looking – full of frozen ice cream and chocolate and whip cream.  Now as kids would do when they are dating, mom/dad were making goo-goo eyes at each other and flirting.  That’s all they did during their courtship days – rolls piggy eyes.  Out of the blue, dad says to mom, “That whip cream sure would look good on your nipples.”

What in the h-e-hockey sticks did he just say in front of God and everyone?!  I’m telling you my friends.  A mouse could have farted from the kitchen and you would have heard it from the silence that overcame at the table.  Bless mom’s heart because she wanted to be beamed up by Scotty right there.  Dad turned fifty shades of red when he realized that he said that out loud.  And poor dad’s mom/dad – they had to whip their tongues back into their mouths over their son’s sudden lack of judgment.

Of course, there was some explaining to do and years later we can all laugh about it now… somewhat.

Shopping Around the World

My friends – thank YOU so very much for everyone’s wonderful responses to my and Fozzie’s Shopping Around the World blog posts.  We are having so much fun seeing the different prices from around the world AND looking at some intriguing recipes and dinner suggestions.  They are so totally awesome!  Let’s keep up the great work – remember to link back to my blog here so we can keep up with who is playing and keep up with all of the recipes.

This month we focused on FIVE items of your choice in a dessert.  MMM – licking my piggy lips – this sounds so delicious already!  My mommy promised to make me and daddy one of her all time wonderful desserts – Easy Peanut Butter Pie.

   Now I know you are looking at this picture and going there’s six ingredients not five.  Bacon, can your mom count?  Yep, she can.  One is up to you.  Let’s break the items down first with prices:

Chocolate Graham Cracker Crust – $1.50; Jif Peanut Butter, smooth – $2.50; Lite Whip Cream – $1.00; Cream Cheese – $1.00; and Confectioner’s Sugar – $3.29; Reese’s Mini Cups – $.69= $9.98

Now you really can’t say this easy Peanut Butter Pie cost $10.00 to make because it didn’t.  You’re not going to use the entire jar of peanut butter or the entire bag of confectioner’s sugar.  With that in mind, I would guess perhaps around $5.00.  And the Reese’s Mini cups are optional.  Mom just thinks they look pretty decorated on the finished pie.  And yes she got the mini cups because the paper is already taken off of them – that’s right.  Mom goes for easy – easy to eat while decorating the pie that is – snorts.

  Directions from mom for Easy Peanut Butter Pie:

Make sure that the cream cheese and cool whip are at room temperature.  Mix the cream cheese (1 package), 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar and 1/2 cup peanut butter until smooth.  Fold in 1/2 of the whipped topping.  Spoon the mixture onto the chocolate graham cracker crust.  You can use regular flavor graham cracker – the chocolate just kicks it up a bit.

Please the remaining whip cream topping over the pie.  Now we garnish with chopped up Reese’s peanut butter cups.  This is optional.  You can also drizzle with chocolate.  Chill for at least two hours or overnight.  Now, I would like to say that this picture is what mine looked like.  We made the pie.  Popped it in the fridge overnight and then after dinner the next night we had some friends over and ate the pie…. without taking a picture of it!  Of course, that could have given us an excuse to make another 🙂 winks.

I’m Sorry

There’s no other way to put this.

They say that admission is the first step.  I’m here to tell you the truth first hand before it gets out.  Nylablue please forgive me for I have strayed.  A momentary lapse in judgment was all that it took.

One night when mom and dad went out on their date, I made a few phone calls myself.  I invited a certain lady over and well things got a little too far.  Before I knew it, we were in mom and dad’s room on their Select Comfort bed and Barry White’s It’s Ecstasy When You Lay Down Next Me was playing in the background on the stereo system.

I was hand feeding my lady strawberries and whip cream and she was doing the same for me.  It was really great.  And then things got heavy.

I know I shouldn’t have.  It wasn’t right.  I’m not that kind of pig.  But I guess dad was right in saying that one day I would grow up and step away from mom to be a man pig.  Well I did.  I guess in 114 days, we will have some little Bacon Juniors and Bacon Juniorettes running around the Hotel Thompson.

I’m sorry if you think worse of me.  It is Spring and that time in a little pigs life.






Of course I didn’t!  Snorts – my mommy raised me better than that!  Love you my friends 😉
