A Baconian Morning

Standard

Good Morning From Baconia!

Things are quiet in the Land of Bacon – which is the purrrrfect way to start a Caturday if there ever was one right?    The Royal Cook has rustled up some goodies for all of us to enjoy to start our day off with the usual BANG!     Help yourself to the buffet then have a seat and nosh away on the delightful delights here in the palace of the King of Bacon-land!     There are mimosas and hot chocolate to top it all off…….

Now that you’ve piled up your plate – come and join me and Angel Sammy at the table !!!!

If you feel just a tad overloaded with bacon or breakfast (or both) you are welcome to help yourself to one of the many guest rooms in the Castle of Baconia!  

 

Trust me – these are comfy!

Have we started your day off with a SMILE???     Hope so.     Remember, we do this every Caturday in the Land of Baconia……………..at least as long as I’m KING we do!!!!!

Ahhh…it’s good to be King (Angel Sammy said so!)

Angel Sammy may be gone but he’s the Permanent President of CLUB BACON!  Help yourself to the badge to show you’re a fan!

Oh and IN CASE you haven’t heard…..today is Cat World Domination Day!   (at my house every day is……) This is a fabulous celebration started by Angel Sammy’s friend Sparkle and carried on in the tradition by Summer…….if you click her  badge below you can join in the fun at Summer’s blog!!

ALWAYS LISTEN TO YOUR DOCTOR!!!!!

Enjoy your Saturday!   That’s a royal decree!

Teddy, The King

 

Ahhhhh Bacon!

Standard

Did Somebody say…….BACON?????????????

Count me in……….in fact, count a lot of us in – those of us who are true Bacon Buddies gather together every Saturday in the Kingdom of Baconia to celebrate our love of the stuff – eat as much of the stuff as our tummies can handle – and share whatever bits of bacon trivia we have picked up during the previous week.

Ever on the search for interesting bacon delights – we came up with just a few for you today………….are you ready?

Mom says she’s not too sure about this one…..but she’d be willing to test drive it (haha)

Mom loves peanut butter – Mom loves burgers – but together?  Not so sure about this!!

Mom says she could be “on board” with this one………

We’re totally on board with this one!!!!

HAHAHAHAHAHA – guess which direction I’d go!!

 

Believe it or not we’re having problems finding interesting bacon items for you to giggle over on Saturdays – we may have to resort to “INSTANT REPLAYS” of some our favorites…..somehow I don’t think you’d mine.   There’s something about bacon that makes you not mind seeing it OVER AND OVER AND OVER again!

I bet that my Sammy is on his cloud this morning at the Bridge thinking about Saturdays and how Mom would make bacon for him………talk about NICE dreams!

Don’t ever forget!!!   Enjoy your bacon today!!

That’s a ROYAL decree!

Happy Saturday…..King Teddy

It makes EVERYONE happy right?????

Bacon Delights

Standard

Bacon Rules!

Bring it on Mom!

Today Mom and I are sharing a few bacon dessert goodies we found online……………yes you’re right – we are bacon-obsessed here in the Kimmell household and we thought you OTHER bacon fans would appreciate some ideas on adding this yummy stuff to the TREAT at the end of your dinner!!

Chocolate bacon baklava!

Smoked bacon flan!

Peanut butter bacon chocolate bars!

YES these things really do exist and aren’t we all glad that they do!    I’m thinking that they are worth whatever agony Mom has to go through in the kitchen to make one or more of these right?   Of course I’m right!   I’m leaning toward the baklava but that phyllo dough can be mean to work with – HOWEVER, those PB Bacon Chocolate Bars?   Now you’re talkin’ !!!!

Now for a few of your favorites:

Minions are SO smart!!!

Yes we can get pretty silly here at my house especially when it comes to bacon but one thing is for sure – it’s mighty darn good!!!!!!

MY ALL TIME FAVORITE!

Happy Bacon Day!!!

Beauteous Bacon Day!

Standard

Oh Boy!  Oh Joy!

It’s that day that Angel Sammy loved so much and I happily “inherited” from him – now that I’m THE KING I feel honored to carry on the tradition of bringing you some BACON fun every week!   This week I searched high and low to bring you some NEW bacon treats……….things that you probably haven’t thought of to make with that luscious stuff we call BACON – or maybe you have thought of them but only in your DREAMS – well I’m here to tell you some of them are REAL!

Take a gander at what I found for you THIS week:

Bacon and bleu cheese stuffed mushrooms

Candied bacon ice cream

Bacon cinnamon rolls

Bacon gorgonzola potato salad

Maple Bacon Truffles

Oysters with bacon and cheese

Bacon peanut brittle

Is your mouth watering yet?    Huh?   Well mine sure is…………….Kind of makes the bacon and eggs my Mom made for breakfast this morning look rather PLAIN but hey – there was BACON and that’s the important thing right?

SO – what do you say gang?  Let’s CELEBRATE bacon today!!

Go ahead – blow out the candles but don’t get melted wax on my bacon please!

We are makin’ bacon and yes you can haz!

Have a bacon-filled Saturday loyal subjects!

King Teddy

Before I go, I am sad to report the loss of another of our good friends, the beautiful Snowball at 15andmeowing.   She had not been well for a while but of course we all hoped that she would be with us for a long time to come……Angel Sammy was one of many who met her at the Bridge yesterday as she returned home from a vet visit……..if you click the badge we made for Snowball, you can visit 15andmeowing to leave a message if you like.  

Breakfast With Bacon!

Standard

I Can Smell Bacon!   Can You?

Oh yes!   Nothing smells better………NOTHING!   Let’s eat!   You don’t want to DEFY the Kingly Decree do you?????

Make sure and show this to your humans – they need to realize that it’s IMPAWTANT the King’s wishes be followed!

Here are some suggestions you can give them of what to serve YOU today:

THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS!!!!!

And don’t we deserve a little bacon in our lives after entertaining them all week?   Loving them all week?   Letting them sleep with us, pet us, brush us, feed us, ALL WEEK?

Indeed………..bring on the bacon I say.

Show them this DEPRESSING and SAD graphic!    We must do better than AVERAGE!

Angel Sammy – the former King of Baconia – and I agree on this!

If all else fails – remember we have the power of “THE LOOK” on our side!   Don’t hesitate to resort to it if you need to!

As I leave you this Saturday, may I give you this FINAL THOUGHT:

Happy Baconday from your King!

‘Tis I – King Teddy

(Bacon King in Training!)

It’s that day that I get excited about every week – just like my big brother wanted me to.   When Sammy left for the Bridge he entrusted me to carry on the tradition of bacon in the house on Saturday WITHOUT FAIL!    Mom is cooperating fully!    She and my Dad are “Baconators” too so it works out purrfectly!

This week’s new bacon posters are nice additions to our collection of bacon “ha ha’s” here on the blog………………..

SURE – that works!  Get a big huge fatburger and top it all off with a DIET drink!   Tee Hee

And the newest bacon delight we found sounds most interesting……………and look pretty yummy, especially the nice melty, drippy cheese in the middle………..check it out:

MMMM……..Mom figures this one is pretty easy to make – next time she makes mashed potatoes she will make EXTRA and give this one a whirl!    I hope I’m around when that happens!!!

This could be me in a few months if I’m not CAREFUL!!!!

Don’t feel bad about eating bacon!!!!!!! Just remember THIS!

Oh I agree with this FOR SURE! This is bacon deprivation!

IMPOSSIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just as much fun as getting to have bacon as a treat is looking for fun things to put in my Saturday Bacon post………..one thing is TOTALLY for sure………………bacon makes ME smile!    I also have this feeling every Saturday that Angel Sammy is up at the Rainbow Bridge having bacon with me EVERY SINGLE week.    I like to think that he’s PROUD of me for carrying on with the bacon thing on Saturday…………….and if you’re chomping on the bacon from time to time, rest assured Angel Sammy is proud of YOU TOO!!

Think of me when you enjoy your bacon!!!

See you tomorrow for Mother’s Day!

Bacon flavored hugs, Teddy

Beauteous Bacon!

Standard

Ready….Set….Bacon!

Ahhhh…..another day I get to smell the “Aroma of the Gods”……..BACON cooking!   Anybody else feel that way????

YEP YODA WE ALL DO!

So you smell it too huh?

HELP YOURSELVES!!!!!

As you can see I have plenty of bacon already made……….step right up and fill up your plates and your tummies.

Gimme!

GRAB AND RUN!

No need to run – have a seat and enjoy your bacon treats………….it’s not good to run on a full tummy.     We work hard being adorable all week long just so we can enjoy being treated to some bacons on Saturday right everyone?   Right!    Remember, if your humans have “convenient memory” and forget about the Decree – give them this as a reminder!!!!!!!

No sense beating around the bush – make it official!

This gets ’em every time!!!!!!   Good Luck!

Remember, Angel Sammy is watching you – he would want you to fight for your right to BACON!

See you next Saturday Bacon Fans!

OH BOY!  My favorite day of the week!

 

I hereby decree that all cats far and wide in all parts of the Kingdom of Baconia share with me in the joy of a munchy, crunchy slice of bacon today!   Inform your humans that THE KING HAS SPOKEN!

(**think that will work?**)

If THAT doesn’t work…………..show them this official decree!!

That should do the trick!    And once they get the message, show them this delightful idea for how to make bacon not only for YOU to eat but THEY can enjoy some bacon too in this form!

My Mom thinks this is a fabulous way to enjoy some bacon……………….!!

I’ll tell you what REALLY works when it comes to getting the bacon you want for a snackable on BACON DAY……………….”THE LOOK” !!

One of these might work for you!!!!!!

If it doesn’t work……maybe you can wangle a handful of cat treats anyway…………..not QUITE as delish as bacon but not such a bad “second place”!    Whatever you do, and however it works out for you – have a HAPPY SATURDAY!

It’s good to be King!  

Love, King Ted

 

Bashful and Bacon

Standard

Bashful (because he’s visiting me) 

Bacon (because it’s Saturday!)

Yes – as I always say (because Sammy said I should!) – it’s Saturday – Bacon Day – and it’s OH SO GOOD TO BE KING!!!!

But it’s also oh so good to have Bacon the piggy’s rock-star brother Bashful visiting me too.    I have a few pictures to share with you today of his adventures so far here with me BUT first, let’s do what we bacon-lovers MUST do on a Saturday!    EAT BACON!   YAY!!!!

Remember that Sammy is always watching……so we mustn’t miss a Saturday!

Mom has been known to say this on a Saturday…..would make things easier if we could just download the stuff!!

Really – who would serve eggs WITHOUT bacon?   Isn’t that either a sin or against the law or SOMETHING?

If I had that little face staring at me in the kitchen one morning I’d be grabbing my car keys and making a bee-line for the grocery store!!!!!!

This is not a “funny” poster – it’s TRUE AROUND MY HOUSE!!!

Well here at my house we are WELL above AVERAGE!!!

ARE YOU KIDDING????????????????????????????????

I do hope that you will be blessed with some bacon for breakfast (or lunch or dinner or all three) today!    We have had some for breakfast here at MY house!

Who’s Visiting????

Yep – Bashful is here for his second visit but it’s his FIRST visit with ME!   Angel Sammy was his host first time around!

Bashful had Thanksgiving dinner in W. Virginia at Sammy’s Auntie Joan’s house when he visited last time.

This is him sitting on Auntie Joan’s dining room table after alllllllllll that turkey was eaten and alllllllll the side dishes too!  No he didn’t eat them all – there was a lot of human help.

ANYWAY, we think he had fun……….this time around, we will have new adventures and I’ll be his host.

The first thing he wanted to do was pay his respects to Angel Sammy…..In the back of the box is a little book my Mom wrote after Sammy sent to the Bridge.

After that, we took Bashful to the grocery so he could pick out some favorite things to have while he’s here!   He had his own Bashful-sized shopping bag too and know what?   He only wanted ONE SPECIAL THING for himself – all the rest of the food Mom bought he said was great.   Here he is with his ONE SPECIAL THING:

IMAGINE THAT!    His own bottle of Guinness!    Heavy stuff for a rock but then Bashful can handle anything!

Next up he asked if he could look for some bedtime reading for nights after we’ve turned out the lights in the Casa De Kimmell for snooze time.   So we perused our library here at home and he found some “Bashful-sized” books to read:

He will have plenty of reading material that’s for sure!

Who knows WHAT we’ll do next…….but we’ll have fun that’s for sure!

Time for both of us to have a post bacon breakfast nap!

See you tomorrow for Sunday Selfies at The Cat On My Head!

Love, Teddy and Bashful
