Celebrating Bacon Sundays

I awoke at 4:30 on Sunday morning. Actually, I awoke somewhat earlier but got up at 4:30. Don't you hate it when that happens? It wouldn't be quite so irksome, if I had slept well before then, but it was kind of a fitful night.

Deciding to pamper myself, I grabbed a few bits of bacon from the fridge and had the bits with scrambled egg and toast.

It reminded me of a Sunday morning a long, long time ago.

I got up early enough for church. Needless to say, not many kids did that, so I pretty well had the huge cafeteria to myself.

Not having many diners, they piled copious quantities of bacon on my plate. I had never eaten much bacon because, according to mother, "It's fattening and doesn't have much food value."

She was right, of course, but I can tell you that the heaping plateful of bacon that morning was absolutely heavenly. More heavenly than the later service, for sure. lol

In fact, I have never looked at a pig the same way since.

Edit:  In response to Comments, I thought I might add that I was at Uni and it was the cafeteria there. It's amazing how a minor detail like that can flesh out the narrative.  lol

Your story of waking up so early is way too familiar to me. I hate laying there and staring at the ceiling unable to sleep. It does give me some good blogging time though....;)

I grew up on a farm so every weekend was the full breakfast/ brunch after chores . I love the smell of bacon in the mid mornings cooking . I wake up at 6:30 am every morning . Thanks for sharing . Have a good day !

Most of my nights resemble your first paragraph these days. So aggravating. Now that I CAN sleep in, well, I can't!

Grenville is a huge fan of bacon and Sunday morning it is usually served with pancakes.

bacon's the gateway meat.

surprising how many restaurants just give it partly cooked and floppy. how hard is it?

Every day I say, hey, maybe I'll get up early tomorrow but I never do. Well, once I did. It was great. No bacon, though. Now I feel cheated.
