One occasion where it isn’t rude to stare. Go right ahead.
I consulted everything in this photo, and I have permission. It’s flattered, honestly.
Take a second to take in the syrupy, glistening, rich sheen. Check out the hunks of crisped smoky bacon. Ogle the soft, sweet, mellow onion and the spicy chunks of jalapeno.
Coffee is in there, for deep flavor and color. Also apple cider vinegar, for the balance that a sharp bite brings. They’re a bit camera-shy, but beloved just the same.
So, yeah. That’s what I’ve been doing with my life: making decadence happen.
Things that have gone through my brain today:
-I can’t believe Insane Clown Posse have a spokeswoman (my only takeaway from that article).
-Moreover, I think I kind of want that job?
-Furthermore, no, I don’t.
-If I made it to 26 without getting a tattoo, it’s probably not meant to be. GOODBYE WAYWARD YOUTH.
-My lunch is really delicious.

I know, I know–I’m titling this dish backwards. Potatoes and eggs are the building blocks of breakfast. The headliners.
Potatoes and eggs are Madonna. Kale and bacon are LMFAO and MIA and all those other things “the kids” like. But it’s a dog-eat-dog world out there, and I have to catch someone’s attention, you know? We all know who the real deal is and who the supporting players are.
That doesn’t make sense. I won’t be attempting this analogy again.
All I’m saying is, strike a pose…
The shorter title for this recipe is the Face of God, if you prefer. Because I’m sure it would look exactly like this.
Hi! I apologize for being blasphemous and weird. I came out of my mom’s belly just like this and here I am, writing about sandwiches on the internet.
But, if you give me a few minutes, I can tell you about a genius combination of ingredients for your next picnic. It’s sweet, savory, pretty, and FANCYpants. The appearance of these sandwiches is deliberate and dainty, but we all know that a sandwich with bacon on it would punch someone in the face if it had to.
