Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival

Before I flipped the Rover, I actually did a bit of travel which had not made it to the blog.

Today, we go to Iowa.

My good buddy Greg called me one cold Missouri February day as I was busy studying for the Foreign Service Officer test, (i.e. playing Sudoku on my iPad mini…), and said he had an extra ticket to the Blue Ribbon Bacon festival in Iowa.  Would I like to spend a wintry weekend in Des Moines surrounded by good people, Bacon, Beer and some fine mid-western folks who really get into eating bacon and drinking beer…?  (Not to mention a pit stop in fabulous Cumming, Iowa for koozies at the Cumming Tap…and the tuxedo shop to pick out some black and gold tuxes for his pending nuptials to be celebrated on the campus of the University of Iowa.)

Hell yes I’ll go.

I don’t even think a tee-totaling vegan would say no to that kind of invitation.

Here is the end result – 1 minute of video highlights from the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival INCLUDING – a Chef Grant food storage tip thanks to the same good buddy who had the ticket, Greg.

Anyone who has ever wondered how to store a large pizza in a hotel fridge, enjoy the video!
