Today in college football, Ohio State plays Penn State and although it is not a rivalry it’s close enough to make it a big game regardless of each teams ranking. And it just so happens to also be National Greasy Foods Day, which is perfect for football. But since I like to celebrate my Saturdays with peanut butter and chocolate in the spirit of my buckeyes, I made a peanut butter and chocolate treat that incorporated the best greasy food item ever – bacon!

After falling in love with the peanut butter bacon burger this was bound to happen. It’s not like I haven’t made cupcakes and cookies with bacon before. It is sweet and salty goodness.

Last but not least, the icing on the cake for today is my arrival in Seattle! I am visiting my friend Chip who recently moved there and then the next couple days I am going hog wild with Peabody (Culinary Concoctions by Peabody) and Kita (Pass the Sushi/Girl Carnivore)! It shall be full of deliciousness and merriment.

For a fun story for how this trip came to be, check out Peabody’s post.
