Why I Regret Giving Up Bacon For Lent

February 13, 2013 marked Ash Wednesday, the start of the liturgical season of Lent. Traditionally, Catholics decide to “give up” something for Lent, and I gave up bacon and iced coffee. Four days in, I’m starting to regret my choice:

No bacon for 40 days.

None at all.

No BLTs.

No bacon cheeseburgers.

No corn chowder.

Most recipes start with bacon :(

No bacon hotdogs.

I’ll basically be avoiding Five Guys for Lent.

No Easy Mac with Bacon.

If you didn’t know this product existed, go get it. Now.

No bacon bits.

No bacon ranch.


No chocolate covered bacon.

No bacon pancakes.

Oh, you beautiful bastards.

Pray for my soul. It’s going to be a long 40 days.
