bringing home the bacon

The bacon was finally ready to be picked up from Froehlich's yesterday. All eight pounds of it. This is precisely the reason that I split the meat with my mom. Eight pounds of bacon is more than three people should consume in a short time period (or maybe even in a long time period). I guess your consumption limit depends on what diet you are following. I happen to follow the "everything in moderation" diet. Eight pounds doesn't happen to translate to "moderate" in my view. Plus, bacon doesn't keep very long (1-2 months in the freezer), so we'll be eating it practically every week until it's gone, anyway. Not that anyone's complaining...
