On Sunday a person's thoughts turn to bacon. At least mine do. I don't have to rush to the office, so I can take the time to cook my bacon properly, slowly over low heat. Of course my thoughts are never very far from bacon, no matter what day of the week it is.
That's why I'm particularly excited about today's Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway, a year-long membership in the Bacon of the Month Club, courtesy of the good folks at the Grateful Palate. Every month for a whole year the lucky Serious Eater who wins this most desirable club membership will receive a pound of fantastic small producer, artisanally made bacon personally selected by "Captain Bacon" himself, Grateful Palate founder Dan Philips.
This is my kind of club. In fact, someone gave me a membership in this club a few years ago for my birthday, and I can tell you it provided me with a year's worth of absolute eating pleasure.
To win this coveted membership just leave a comment on this post telling us how you like your bacon, crisp or pliant.
You have until noon ET tomorrow (Monday, December 24) to enter. One winner will be chosen at random from among the commenters. The standard Serious Eats contest rules apply. Contest winners are limited to residents of the continental U.S.
And if you don't happen to win I heartily endorse joining the Bacon of the Month Club anyway. You can sign up here and by entering promotion code SERIOUSBACON08 at checkout you'll receive a 5 percent discount.
