Well my name isn't Dave, but I don't have stuff that I don't need. And we are not full time. Nor do we plan to be full time, just a personal preference, but we are retired now and plan to be about halftimers. We eat bacon for breakfast when we can.

I think one thing we have found that bacon doesn't improve is Fried Rice, the frozen varieties are a favorite of ours, but lately it has become a quest to find, without the added bacon. What do you think is NOT improved by the addition of bacon??

Any green vegetables, like collard greens, mustard greens, spinach, beet greens, etc. I just like the natural flavor of those items - with lots of butter.

Boy am I going to take it for this post.

Hi Wayne,

You wont get any guff from me on the butter issue, I think that some of it has to do with your heredity, my grandmother lived till she was 99 and used to cook everything in bacon grease, one time I can remember when I was only about 7 my parents took us to grandma and grandpa's house, she fried up 3 pounds of bacon and then made fried potato's and lastly made eggs all floated in the last of the bacon drippings everything tasted like heaven on earth and we lived to tell about it. I view butter in the same light, use it but dont abuse it, and we havent even brought up the benefits of buttered popcorn with ice cold beer.

Cheers !!!

I grew up eating all sorts of greens, including all of your list plus dandelion.
The best was beet greens. Always plant too many so you must thin them! And butter, but also vinegar.

I'm a "greens" man myself. I have started using a smoked turkey wing instead of bacon. It is a great substitute for those other salty, smokey additions. Got to have a dash or two of that spicy green pepper juice too.

When I was in the AF my friend from WV always bragged about Ramps - haven't ever seen em or tried em, but apparently folks love em - whatever they are.

Jeff - isn't there a term for 3 pounds of bacon at one sitting. Perhaps an embarrassment of richness? Or is it heart failure at next junction? Lol.

Ahh yes. Ramps. WV wild leeks. The best time of the year to get ramps is in the early spring, so the next time you pass by a small mom and pops store in WV that has a sign for ramps, do yourself a favor and get a mess of ramps.

Ramps, those are some strong things. I've had them, cook them well and use sparingly.

Reminds me of the time stationed in VA and one day in the back yard I see my neighbor picking beets. I walked over and he was popping the greens of and putting the beets in a sack. I asked what he was going to do with the greens and he said he was going to throw then away. I asked if I could have them and he put them into two paper sacks and handed them to me asking what I was going to do with them. I said I was going to eat them. He grunted something.

Went in the house, showed Earlene, she pulled out a big ol' pot and cooked them right then and there. I put some in a small bowl with some butter and took them outside and said, "Here, try this." I never did get another beet green from him. Darn!

Hahahahaha,

Well Steve let me put the breakfast into some kind of context, I had two brothers and a sister plus my parents and grand parents there, and grandma was just trying to make enough for everyone. Now to put it into even more context, my father was one of 6 children, one brother and 4 sisters and of course his parents so grandma always seemed to be cooking for a large group. I hope this helps.

Cheers !!!
