Tomorrow is International Bacon Day. Act Accordingly.
In a half ass attempt to celebrate, I attempted today to make Bacon Cupcakes. They may be messy and poorly formed, but I would say I succeeded.
And this is how:
Having time to kill before catching Iron Man Three (which is pretty damn awesome, you should see it, and Shane Black needs to write and direct more movies thank you), we grabbed lunch at Denny’s.
“Grabbing Lunch at Denny’s” is a pretty new experience for me to be honest. In the past, the only times I’ve ever really darkened the doorstep of the bright yellow franchise was late at night/early morning after a substantial quantity of alcohol was drunk. Denny’s, to me, was a fluorescently lit landscape of sallow, pale faced customers and sad waitresses, seen through a slowly diminishing haze of alcoholic stupor.
So, lunch. We saw this sign and decided that this was going to be way to go:
The Daily Catch is a pretty swell fish shop on Commercial Drive. They opened last year and have been the go to spot for picking up fresh sustainable ocean critters in East Van. They also have a food truck that tends to be parked outside their shop (apparently, they were planning on being parked at Grandview Park, but there were some issues. Hopefully, those issues could be resolved soon-ish, as the park would probably be a better location for them).
As for the food:

It’s Genius, really. And not that fake kind of genius that Louis C.K. talks about. No. This is capital G Genius.
Adeline’s Cafe on Commercial Drive. They need no website, so check out their facebook page instead. And get a bowl made out of bacon.
A while back, I attempted some Bacon Bourbon. These pictures show the attempt:
First- Slowly fry up 4 to 5 slices of bacon. You’re looking to get about 2 ounces of rendered bacon fat. I would using quality bacon. The stuff below is some nasty President’s Choice Smoked stuff that I had in the fridge. You will really notice a difference in the quality depending on the bacon you use.
this is where noodle go to fight
