Life in the 1500s

From a random e-mail chain I saw today...

LIFE IN THE 1500'S

The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature isn't just how you like it, think about how things used to be. Here are some facts about the 1500s:

Sometimes they could obtain pork, which made them feel quite special. When visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to show off. It was a sign of wealth that a man could, bring home the bacon. They would cut off a little to share with guests and would all sit around and chew the fat...

Pork.

Go get some.

in case you were looking for a decorating theme for the new place. bacon is the obvious answer.

Are pork burgers a thing in WV? A pork burger from the Kentucky State Fair is this vegetarian's fondest memory of childhood meat.

actually ms. bethany, my local watering hole, Sam's Uptown Cafe, serves the Samburger. A tasty combination of 80% ground beef and 20% ground jimmy dean breakfast pork goodness.

But if they had it at the state fair, it should have to come wrapped in funnel cake!

I've heard of a pork/beef combo for meatballs but that is not the porkburger way.

As served by the Kentucky Pork Producers Association the porkburger is a patty of grilld, ground pork on a bun.(August 14-24, 2008. KY is on the way to Denver)
