A (slightly edited to protect the Gia) text conversation between my friend who smells like a wet dog and I:

Me: Holy crap! We just had an all-you-can-eat BBQ dinner and I tried fatback for the first time. Jim Gaffigan would be proud!
Me: The craziest fucking bacon ever!  Took two years off my life.
WLC: Worth it?
Me: They were gonna be the "shit in my pants" years anyway, so yeah!  Totally worth it.

The fatback in question was served at a local Mt. Pleasant joint called Momma Brown's.  It was just a couple of small pieces, but I ain't kidding about its' effect on my life-span.  Way too much salt and fat to be consumed in large quantities.

This followed an awesome breakfast earlier in the day at The Hominy Grill.  Beef creole over hominy grits with a couple of scrambled eggs and some fresh rye toast.   Mmmm....I love rye toast.  I believe that I've mentioned that before.

Gonna do an oyster roast at Bowen's Island Restaurant either later today or tomorrow.



Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. I can feel my heart beating.

Not sure that I agree with such censorship...

Ralph Waldo Emerson stated that every burned book enlightens the world. I'm pretty sure he would have said the same thing about text messaging.

Now what about that bacon to bacon time/space continuum?

Wabbit - I've exploded a few times this vacation already! ;)

Doggie - yeah, but that's a story for Gia to tell to the world. Not I.

And that's a nerdy-ass bacon joke. ;)

gotta love the south! shrimp with grits is my favorite southern food. i could eat that every day for a week and still be happy.

i'm trying to rememeber the name of the bbq place britt and i ate at in charleston last january. damn excellent, finger licking good food.

hello haha narf said...

dammit, britt didn't write the names of the restaurants that we visited when she wrote her post about the food. fuck. i think the paper in the biscuits photo says jim n nick's. they were the same people who made the ribs so damn tasty that i wanted to roll around naked in the sauce a bit. (they were in downtown charleston.)

Why do I put on weight after coming here so often? For the love of god man, do a post on diets before I go bang.

Verdant Earl said...

Becky - JIM AND NICK'S!!!! Thank you! Gia's sister was trying to remember the name of the bbq restaurant that she heard was the best in Charleston and she knew it had two men's names in the name. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! We will be going there later this week. :)

Jimmy - Sorry. If you want moderation and temperance I suggest Mass. ;)

Bacon is the new Mineral Water fade of the 22nd Century. And Vampires / Zombies are the new Dinosaur fade.......we crave what ever the media titans tell us to crave.....although I do love a good slab of bacon.

Verdant Earl said...

Bruce - I think my love of bacon has transcended any media intervention. It's been a life-long affair.

Verdant Earl said...

Slyde - Not until college.
