It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

I visited a local farm and picked up a couple of fresh pork bellies. This is a picture of the boar. His job is to eat, sleep and attend to the ladies. That's all I'm going to say about that. In this picture, he's fast asleep. It's 11 am.
