 TRIVIA
The origin of the expression "bringing home the bacon" is
uncertain. It might come from the English custom, which
originated in the 12th century, of giving a young couple bacon
if they were still happy after a year of marriage. Maybe it
comes from the 'greased pig' competition at fairs, the winner
bringing home the bacon (the pig). Or maybe bacon is meant to
represent all food since it is very ancient, having been a
favorite of the early Romans and Greeks.

 QUOTE
"In Paris today millions of pounds of bread are sold daily, made
during the previous night by those strange, half-naked beings
one glimpses through cellar windows, whose wild-seeming cries
floating out of those depths always makes a painful impression.
In the morning, one sees these pale men, still white with
flour, carrying a loaf under one arm, going off to rest and
gather new strength to renew their hard and useful labor when
night comes again. I have always highly esteemed the brave and
humble workers who labor all night to produce those soft but
crusty loaves that look more like cake than bread."
Alexandre Dumas, French writer (1802-1870)

 TRIVIA
The common green bean has been cultivated in Mexico for at
