    I fix eggs: In a smallish mixing bowl, healthy pinch of salt, 2 TBS powdered milk, (fresh milk does not last, dont even need a glass!), wisk, 2 jumbos, wisk, 1 oz cream cheese cut into smallish cubes/triangles, cook slowly in 'toasted sesame oil'.

    Lots of people find 'TSO' too intense, I happen to love it!

    A few markets around here sell rashers of bacon sliced as thick or thin as one desires.

    Mine is all "pre-packed stuff" but it only oozes pork fat. There are butcher shops all over Frisco, Berserkeley and Oakland that sell unpackaged bacon...I assume freshly sliced, since they also sell pork belly. Starting at around $10 a pound, I save that for the rich yuppies. My packaged stuff is around $2 to $4 for 12 ounce pack. It works for me when I can find hickory-smoked bacon, but occasionally I have to settle for that gawd-awful sweet applewood-smoked crud from Canada. Which is why I keep Wrights Liquid Smoke around.

    Few weeks ago I bought two nice pieces of pork belly (8 lb = @ $4.99) to make 'char siu' which traditionally is made with pork belly. Takes 10 minutes of a low boil so's its not like eating pure fat.

    So, trimis, you're from San Francisco? I'm from San Diego, well SD north county.

    Can't even get pork belly at supermarkets here. Safeway will special order a goose year-round, but pork belly never. Only butcher shops have it, and its like twice the price of their bacon. Mutton is another thing MIA here.

    I'm near the Berkeley/Oakland border...just barely outside the CrazyZone proper. I go to Frisco for shopping, but only as last resort. Its a pigsty.

    Or slightly easier...buy pork belly. slice it, cure it, and smoke it. Less squealing and mess!
