Six degrees of Crispy Bacon – Bewitched April 18, 2008

Filed under: Cooking,Six Degrees of Crispy Bacon — LotusMama @ 6:10 pm

Supposedly, everyone in the world is connected within six degrees of separation. You know Jane, who knows John, who knows June, who knew Julie who knew President Lincoln. You get the idea. There was a short lived party game of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. The game was to connect people with Kevin Bacon through his movies.

Well, if it is good enough for Kevin, it is good enough for Crispy. I bet that I can connect things with bacon within six degrees. My challenge to myself today was the TV show, Bewitched, from the mid-sixties. I love that show, particular Endora. Dick York was the only Darrin, as far as I’m concerned. I’ve always wanted to wiggle my nose, and if it made magic, well, so much the better. Ok, so on with the challenge. Can I connect Elizabeth Montgomery of Bewitched with Bacon? Let’s see…

Elizabeth Montgomery of Bewitched costarred with Bernard Fox who played “Dr Bombay”.

Bombay is the name of a kind of gin.

Gin is made from Juniper berries.

Juniper plants are said to keep witches from entering a home*.

Witches famously use a cauldron for their brew

Witches’ Brew (pea and bacon chowder) can be found here.

(I could have stopped with Bombay gin and the recipe for tomato, bacon and gin soup found here but doing all six was more fun.)

Happy Friday everyone!

*From Rodale’s Illustrated Encyclopedia of Herbs “The plant’s pungent aroma has long recommended it for driving away evil spirits and disease. Legend has it that juniper planted beside the front door will keep out witches; the only way for a witch to get past the plant was by correctly counting its needles.”

    Oh that was brilliantly fun!
    Romama, you should try soy bacon or “Facon” as I like to call it. It’s actually not that bad.
