To quote the great American and Francophile Benjamin Franklin, "Bacon is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." Pete's first lunch back in the gold ol' U S of A was a classic good ol' U S of A combo of bacon and ice cream. Pete had a roasted bacon, Granny Smith apple, red onion, and cheddar melt and a bowl of spicy gazpacho (really peppery with lots of onion and zucchini) from Blind Tiger followed by a dulce de leche ice cream cone (sweet goodness) from Cones. Pete is not a bacon-obsessive like some folks who shall remain nameless--staring at you Ms. Baconista--but he does love him some bacon. (FYI: the Blind Tiger is starting to think outside the Bahn Mi, they have added quite a few new bacon options to their menu, including, among other things, a bacon and live pate.) Pete does scream for ice cream though. If only someone would make bacon ice cream... Or macaroons like the ones Pete snacked on in France. Flavors: nougat; coffee; raspberry; ginger; lemon; pistachio; and basil with pineapple.
