The most disgusting series of posts ever



Christopher has just sent me the first chapter in what I've come to think of as the Most Disgusting Series of Posts Ever. I can't believe that someone is actually making the Bacon Explosion featured in this Wednesday's food section, at least online.

He and Editor Tim created a Trash Food Extravaganza, I'm not sure why but I think for someone's birthday. I'm going to have to delete some names from his e-mail to protect the innocent. EL

I'm prepping the Bacon Explosion as I write this.

I made the fried chicken at Tim's house earlier as well as the Mac and Cheese. I'll let Tim tell you how that went (I'm a bit of a perfectionist and I've never made fried chicken before so it turned into a bit of a production.)  All this fried food is making me feel so dirty!  This is by far the most disgusting thing I've ever attempted to make. I feel so shameful, like I'm doing something inherently wrong or something -- it's hard to explain. I feel like my whole body is covered in the same greasy film that my eyeglasses are covered in and all the while I can't help but think about the irony that I'm making some sort of twisted pork concoction for my Jewish boss ...

His sister [name deleted] Fedex'd a cake to him today, but not just any cake --  It's a carrot cake with a cheesecake sandwiched in the middle. Everything about this menu is so gluttonous and I feel like the accomplice to some sort of culinary crime.

Anyway I've woven the bacon tatami mat and spread/smooshed the italian sausage on top and now I'm going to crumble the crispy bacon on that, slather it with the bbq sauce and have a go at rolling this beast up. Wish me luck. We'll be taking photos tomorrow at the office and I'll be sure to email them to you after we're finished- so long as no one keels over from a coronary!

Haven't you seen " yet? Unreal.

Looks like an arts and crafts project from fat camp...or maybe eating disorder camp.

I know we've talked bacon to death, and I'm sure someone's mentioned this before, but it's new to me so I felt compelled to share:
