Happy Fathers’ Day – The Pork Belly, Bacon & Fatty Meat Series!

Happy Fathers’ Day!

Follow Me Foodie to the Pork Belly, Bacon & Fatty Meat Series!

A tribute to Father, or I mean Dad… who really calls their Dad “Father” nowadays anyways… except maybe English folk… ? Anyways here’s my tribute to Dad! My dad is a carnivore, like most men I know. It’s not even just pork belly or bacon that he loves, but it’s just any kind of meat in general. Sure he appreciates his seafood, but if it’s the “best” fish, lobster or crab, he’d rather have the “best” steak.

So to celebrate all the wonderful dad’s out there I’m giving them pork belly, bacon ad fatty meat! Well since I can’t physically do this, I know YOU can. So if you need ideas for where to bring dad (or any father figure/carnivore in your life) for a meal, or just want to make a photographic calender of pork belly, bacon, and fatty meat, then I can help!

Smitty’s Market in Lockheart, Texas – see my post here.

I’m about to show you some indulgent, rich and hearty, creamy and buttery, tender and juicy, melt in your mouth pork belly, fatty meat and crispy bacon dishes I’ve had the guilty pleasure in eating. I introduce to you my literally and figuratively heart stopping photos that are only guilt free to look at… and I guess eat too if you enjoy it! Life is too short… and I’m about to make it shorter… j/k… sort of 😐

    How about making this post into a 2012 calendar ? Especially if you autograph it ? Sell it and give the monies to yer fav charity…just a thought. I’d buy it.

  • WS says:

    No pictures of any steak(I don’t think you have ever reviewed a steakhouse?). You’re not a steak person?

  • Mijune says:

    @Kristi – you bet!

    @laura – thank you!

    @Bow – exactly my thoughts in my intro! lol… except for the autograph part… wow bow u believe so much in FMF it’s heart warming!! I’m truly honoured and flattered by your comment! Your support means so much you have no idea! Thank you!!

    @WS – Yup I’ve don’t Hy’s, Chop, Joe Fortes, Glowbal, Gotham’s, few hotels (haven’t blogged about them all) and a couple other steak places, but I find steak not “fatty” enough for this post and steak could be a whole other series on its own so I just left steak pictures out. I was going to leave out duck as well and just stick with pork… but that duck photo was too good to pass up. I do like steak, but I like trying new things and I have my go to steak places… unless I’m at a steakhouse I won’t order the steak… it’s just too available. I’d rather try the braised beef which allows for more creativity. I do like steak though! Filet Mignon is my cut.

  • Linda says:

    mmm meeeeeeat 🙂 love them all – still haven’t had the chance to pick up the porchetta – i heard big lou’s has a better version of it – have you tried it yet?

  • Mijune says:

    @Linda – I haven’t tried big lou’s but I’ve been meaning to! I’m pretty sure it’s comparing top sandwiches though so you won’t be “disappointed” by really either i bet.
