March Mad Cow

March 30th, 2009

So I have kind of failed at making March “Beef Month” as the only other beef I have eaten since the Burger Joint burger is one bite of Kobe Beef off the husband’s Surf ‘n Turf birthday plate at La Bernadin. I liked it, but so far there’s no question who will take the final spot in my own personal march meat madness¬† bracket. It will come from the pork region. And the region of pig will be belly.¬† I had another portion of pork belly at A Di La and it only cemented my love of the fattiest part of the pig. I’ve gotten some excellent bacon at the Union Square farmer’s market and enjoyed my first BLT. I try to eat other meat, but bacon keeps drawing me back in.¬† In the words of a wise man, “Bacon, the most beautiful thing on earth… bits of bacon are like the fairy dust of the food community”:

So while I may be guilty of a meat fail with my march mission, the year is but a third over and there’s plenty of time to give beef it’s due. Meanwhile, I’m going to cook up some Bacon Donuts. Bibity bobity bacon!
