Bacon-flavored chocolate chip cookies? Um, okay.

All things bacon (plus some wine to wash it all down) helped wrap up last week’s week-long Kishwaukee Festival, with the grand pork and cork finale held at DeKalb’s Van Buer Plaza.

Boy Scout Troop 33 had all the bacon-bases covered with a variety of offerings from burgers to bacon-wrapped pineapple to a bacon soup.
