30 Day Challenge: Day 8

For Day Eight of the challenge, I am to write down What I Ate Today.

Well, I’ll start off by saying that no one reads a good post at ten in the evening (Yes, I’m giving that weird stare at you good citizen) so I decided it would be best to write what I devoured yesterday.

I began the day right with my usual combination of eggs and bacon, casually mixed within an omelette like shape (or what I tried to shape as an omelette) and a glass of milk. I call it a power combo, only because they say it’s good for my daily workout.
Mid Day arrives and I break the dieting rule by purchasing a 44oz. soda from a convenience store. (*hides head in shame*) Nothing was stuffed into my pie-hole until later in the night when I was kindly invited by my best friend for dinner at his place, serving spaghetti and a little…”extra”.

In Memorium: A Bacon’s Tale

Many of you may not be aware of the recent tragedy of the Bacon community when a truck driver transporting 40,000 pounds of our beloved ambrosia crashed on the highway. The Bacon was celebrating it’s third day of emerging into this world when the semi hit the median, spilling him and all of his brethren onto the pavement.

They were killed on impact.

Rest in Peace

The Bacon was a fun, family loving strip, always ready to help a friend in need. With the dreams of someday starring in his own reality show he participated in several videos within his time of development, steadily climbing the ladder of fame.  He was loved by many and shall be missed by all donuts, skillet, sandwiches, Wendy’s, and unorthodox platters. The nation shall grieve for the loss and will always remember this day. The rest of the numbers shall be forever be etched in remembrance by a memorial being built at supermarkets everywhere.

The Bacon is in a better place now.

Licentious Indulgences

Jar of the Gods.

Nutella: A chocolate and hazelnut spread given to man by the Gods.

When it comes to guilty pleasures I cannot deny them, nor can I ignore them. I happen to be Puerto-Rican so therefore I am passionately attracted to chocolate and hazelnut spreads and Mangos, during my year spent on the tiny island the two would be part of my daily food triangle with the Mango at the top.

Have you ever had Nutella and Mango together–Mango chunks covered in hardened Nutella?

When I worked at Dillion’s (a small, unknown supermarket owned by Kroger) I always saved five-dollars just to get my Nutella fix for the week, I was the one who stocked them so the craving was a constant torture. What was more of a torture was the lack of Mango circulating in my diet, the ones you can get at Wal-Mart are far from the impeccable quality you get in Puerto-Rico. The attempt is futile.

There is one thing in this world however that trumps all substances, an object that has been worshiped for hundreds of years, a food that alters your very existance; the thing known as Bacon!

Anything with Bacon is worth it’s spot in the limelight and you know what they say, “”When in doubt, throw cheese and Bacon on it.” As ironic as it is Bacon is divine ambrosia.
What’s on my plate tonight? A Bacon-Nutella sandwich with a Mango smoothie.
