“Seduced by Bacon” Book Found

Book lovers rejoice. My copy of Seduced by Bacon has been recovered.

Guess where it was?

seduced by bacon book

whoomp there it is

On the cookbook shelf in the kitchen. Who’d have thunk it? Mere weeks ago I feared it was a casualty of our move.

Found it by accident while looking for my smoothies recipe book—which incidentally is now missing. Happened upon Seduced by Bacon as I combed the cookbook spines.

Sometimes what we’re looking for is exactly where it’s supposed to be, maybe even right in front of us, whether we see it or not.

Gives me hope Cassatt will turn up, too. And I’m thinking of a new motto:

Leave no book behind. 

Works for lost books at home and returns to the library. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a date with the bacon that’s long overdue.

“I was ready to respond, but no one asked for help.
I was ready to be found, but no one was looking for me.
I said, ‘Here I am, here I am!’
to a nation that did not call on my name.” Isaiah 65:1 NLT

Whoomp! (There It Is) by Tag Team. Can y’all dig it?

Ever “lost” something that was right in front of you?
Ever “found” something when you weren’t looking?

    Have you ever heard or seen the bit about bacon by Jim Gaffigan (not sure about the spelling there)? You tube it, it’s hillarious!

  2. As a Hungarian and a chef, I can only endorse the BACON. For an addition, here’s the T-shirt I own (and wear to every single 4th of July party, in conjunction with my uncle-in-law wearing one saying “Meat is Murder. Tasty, Tasty Murder.”) http://www.cafepress.com/mf/32290241/_tshirt
    After this, my guess is that Cassatt is hiding inside a piece of living room furniture, waiting for the opportunity to spring out and wreak havoc. Or maybe found refuge with a bathroom box, where random items go for a vacation (seriously!).
    For the found when I wasn’t looking – when we moved, the last item I grabbed from the old apartment was my husband’s KJV Bible. I was looking for it up and down, and couldn’t find it until the very last moment. Someone must have been hinting at something.

    • Nusy, you are too funny! I’ll be turning over couch cushions looking for Cassatt. And maybe Someone was hinting at something. The KJV…that’s like the big guns!

      • It’s probably because growing up I had an 18th century Hungarian translation Bible, but I much prefer KJV over the more modern translations. Something about the archaic language just sits better with me when conversing about important topics.
        But seriously, for Cassatt, try looking in the drawers of nightstands, dressers and whatnots – I’m almost sure that’s where she’s hanging out. :)

        • I’m still impressed about the KJV. And you’re probably right. Cassatt is a rather large coffee table book. Hard to miss if she’s out in the open somewhere. Of course that’s what I thought about Bacon too…
