I love trivia! Do you? And what better subject than BACON! Perhaps all you know about bacon is that it is a meat product prepared from a pig and it goes with just about anything! We will get to some bacony combinations (usual and unusual) later but right now let’s take a walk down history lane and when, where, how this succulent meat found its way to the table, especially America’s breakfast table.
More bacon ideas than anyone could ever imagine! Thinking about it at breakfast is impossible. Then of course the many uses for it during any meal makes bacon a huge part of recipes.
Did you remember bacon also refers to other subjects -like money?

Sign up for Sunshine’s first book and meet her Grandpappy. This photo is a sneak preview of the new Sunshine book also now available. Same sweet little girl but an Irish tale here.
The story begins in the early 1950′s suburbs of Houston, Texas. Mamie is a young child of four who was unwanted, afraid, abused and with nowhere to turn, learned that she had to stand alone. Her only friends were her older brother, an abused child himself, and her nanny, who begged their mother to stop beating them. The father, though he loved his children, remained passive to the end. A victim himself, the only protection he offered was a warning to stay out of their mother’s reach.
Mamie, the main character in this story draws you close to her dreams and hopes as she suffers the neglect and abuse from her mother. A young girl who spends her entire life searching . . . no, pleading for her mother’s love and approval, but instead receives only physical, mental, and emotional abuse in return. This unsettling tale is more a story of hope as Mamie’s fighting spirit leaves the reader in awe at the young girl who comes to life on the tear-stained pages."
Her only thought: Never Give Up!
Her only Dream: A Family to call her own.
