Macon

Macon may refer to:

Mâcon

Mâcon , historically anglicized as Mascon, is a small city in east-central France. It is the prefecture of the department of Saône-et-Loire in Burgundy. Mâcon is home to over 35,000 residents, who are referred to in French as Mâconnais.

Macon (disambiguation)
Macon (surname)

Macon is a surname.

It may be derived from French Maçon or Mâcon meaning marsh dweller (see Masson), or a variant of the occupational surname Mason.

Macon (food)

Macon is a food item that is prepared from mutton (i.e. adult sheep meat). Macon is prepared in a similar manner to bacon, with the meat being cured by soaking it in large quantities of salt or brine; the name Macon being a portmanteau word of Mutton and bacon.

Generally macon has a light black and yellow color, with the outer edges being a darker pink. Macon looks and feels similar to bacon. It would more commonly be found in a thin sliced form used in sandwiches, or as a smaller cut slice topping on a pizza.

It is used as a "bacon" substitute for religious groups whose faith doesn't allow them to eat pork.

Usage examples of "macon".

And that, Colonel Macon, is the pleasant accident which brings you the favor of this call.

And Donnegan thought of Lou Macon in her old, drab dress, huddling the poor cloak around her shoulders to keep out the cold, while her father lounged here in luxury.

Looking up, he saw that the eyes of Colonel Macon were smiling, although his face was grave.

Donnegan was not a squeamish sort, but the fat, smiling face of Macon filled him with unutterable aversion.

Colonel Macon leaned back in his chair and his eyes became fixed upon a great distance.

When Louise Macon turned to him, he had reached the point where he swung his head around first and then grudgingly followed the movement with his body.

If Lou Macon loved Landis it was beyond peradventure that Landis was not breaking his heart because of the girl.

And Donnegan, paying no further heed to him, looked steadily across the hillside to the white tent of Lou Macon, fifty yards away.

He broke off, later in the day, to write a letter to Colonel Macon, informing him that Jack Landis was tied hard and fast by Nelly Lebrun and that for the present nothing could be done except wait, unless the colonel had suggestions to offer.

He loved Lou Macon with all his heart and his soul, and yet because another beautiful girl had looked at him, there he sat at his table with his jaw set and the devil in his eye.

Suppose he were to bring Lou Macon to this place and let her see Landis sitting with Nelly, making love to her with every tone in his voice, every light in his eye?

He had thought of Nelly playing Landis along more gradually and carefully, so that, while he was slowly learning that she was growing cold to him, he would have a chance to grow fond of Lou Macon once more.

Colonel Macon, ensconced in his invalid chair, faced the door, and near him was Lou Macon.

And looking down, as all men will in moments of relaxation from a strain, he did not see the eyes of Lou Macon grow softly luminous as they dwelt upon him.

Win Lou Macon by the power of fear, well enough, for was not fear the thing which she had followed all her life?
