A young guy in the Indianapolis metro area reviews food and gives his opinion on damn near everything in the food world.
The idea for this blog is to blog about everything I think about food and food culture. I'll tell you what I like to eat, where I like to eat it and if I thought it was good or if I thought it was crap. My thoughts about food could go anywhere. Hey if you don't like it go blog at methodicaldudereallythinksalotaboutthefoodhesgoingtoeat.blogspot.com

Bacon Bacon Bacon Bacon BACON!!!
Over the last couple of years you'd be hard pressed to find anything more trendy in the food world than bacon. Sure cupcakes have had a good run because..well hell who doesn't like cupcakes? However, to me that trend just isn't destined to have the same staying power as that fatty salty porky delicious food of the gods. Why, you ask? It's because a cupcake is and is always going to be basically a dessert which has limited appeal. Bacon, on the other hand, can be used in damn near every way imaginable. At breakfast it can be fried and act as a protein all of its own. It can be used as a condiment or flavoring agent such as on top of the cheeseburger or cut up small and put into greenbeans or a salad. And yes, one can even candy it and have it serve adequately in a dessert. It's true that in some cases the trend may have gotten a little out of hand (Jones Bacon Soda), but that's only because it is such a versitile and loved food item. With bacon the plate is no longer the limit.
