Steal the bacon-- just not MY bacon!

My bacon is not for stealing.

Remember the Bacon Explosion I posted a few weeks ago? Delicious recipe that called for 2 lbs of bacon? Yeah, that bacon came in a pack of 4 1lb bags. That means I had 2 lbs left.

So THEN I made green beans with bacon, onion, and tomato. I made it twice. That used up another pound. That means I had 1lb left.

So I go to look for it just now, and... WHERE'S MY BACON?!! It's not in the fridge, it's not in the freezer. I even got panicked enough to look in a couple of drawers. Just in case? No bacon.

I called Bryce, and he has no idea where it is either. I made him reassure me that he wasn't playing a trick or something (though I don't know what kind of "trick" it would be-- hiding-- bacon...) and then I did another thorough sweep of the fridge and freezer. I took everything off the shelves and felt around corners in case my bacon is lying neglected and afraid in some secret refrigerator dungeon between the vegetable drawer and the wall.

I found no bacon. Though I did find some dried mushrooms labeled "Matsutake 10/17/97" (the last person to live in our condo was Japanese, so I guess she kept a special stash. I just googled it to confirm and found that it's a highly sought after mushroom that can be sold for $2,000 per kilogram when it's in season. Um. Wonder what 13 year old mushrooms would sell for...). ANYWAYS, still no bacon.

I'm very vexed by this missing bacon... I would remember eating/cooking a whole pound of bacon.

Thoughts on where my bacon went?
