This One Thing Will Save Any Latino’s Saturday Morning

We’ve all been victimized by Latino mornings. We’re woken up at 7 a.m. by a loud, Latina mom claiming that it’s already 9 a.m. Cumbias are blasting, which is usually and almost always a good thing but on Saturdays, this only means one thing — you’re about to be told to clean the entire house, take out the trash, walk the dog, do laundry only because… your mom’s comadre might be stopping by.

But in the middle of all the darkness, there’s one glimmer of hope that keeps you going… the smell of freshly cooked bacon.

1. Love at first smell

It’s 7 a.m. and you get a hint of something freshly cooked and delicious coming from the kitchen. You doubt yourself and think it might be too good to be true. “What if it’s all in my head?” you ask. You start to feel those butterflies in your stomach and you get nervous just thinking about how excited you get.

2. It’s not just a dream

Then you smell it again. This time, the fragrance is stronger. There’s definitely hot and crispy bacon in the air. You throw the blankets off and you run down the stairs. There it is in all its glory. You hear the popping sound and your heart starts to beat faster and then you see it. That’s definitely hot and crispy applewood smoked bacon sizzling on the stove, but wait….

3. Good things come to those who wait

It’s just not ready…. you start salivating and you want to devour those strips of freshly cooked smoked bacon right away. Then you remember that good things come to those who wait. You need to wait for the perfect, hot and crispy texture. 

4. The Hot, The Fresh and The Crispy

Once you bite into your first piece of freshly cooked bacon, the initial moment of euphoria sets in. The warm flavors in each crispy bite is what Saturday mornings are all about…. You enjoy each sensation and you take bite after bite of the delicious applewood smoked bacon and just for a small moment, the music stops playing, you don’t mind the chores, hell, add some more because all seems right in the world.

5. You don’t have to say goodbye 

You experienced the glory, the crispiness and took your taste buds to a level of ecstasy you can only experience when you’re with bacon. Although this glorious moment is over for your tastebuds, you realize this is not a goodbye, it’s a “see you later”… because as soon as it’s lunchtime you’ll be hitting up Wendy’s Baconfest to have a $5 Biggie Bag and enjoy a Bacon Double Stack filled with applewood smoked bacon, and balance in the world will be restored!
