We've gotten a lot of requests for bigger shakers of Bacon Salt, which we are now offering on our website. If you own a restaurant or just go through Bacon Salt so fast that you need a bigger container, this is a GREAT deal. It's six times as much Bacon Salt for less than half the price, a perfect way to stock up before spring grilling season comes.
We really wanted to make them pig-shaped, but can you believe that they don't make pig-shaped salt shakers yet??
It's flu season, and this weekend I thought I was knocking on death's door - I often invoked Fred Sanford with cries of "this is the big one." Cold, hot, fever, coughing, upset stomach, achey - I had the works.
But while I was sick and delirious, I used Bacon Salt in ways that didn't require much energy or effort and helped me start to feel better. Here's my list of comfort foods from the weekend that helped put me on the road to recovery.
Hickory Bacon Salt with tomato soup - there's a recipe for this on our website, and it's really quite easy. There's nothing like a hot bowl of soup to bring you back to life!
Buttered pasta with Original Bacon Salt - if you've got the stomach flu like I did, there's not much you can keep down. But this easy dish - literally butter, pasta and Original Bacon Salt - was the one thing I could eat for a couple of days, and it really is delicious. If your stomach is already feeling better, go ahead and add some arugula or basil.
Clam chowder flavored with Original Bacon Salt - this was far from homemade - just something the wife picked up at the local Ivar's chowder place - but I loved it with Original Bacon Salt.
Brown rice with Hickory Bacon Salt - this is about as simple as food gets, but it's really good and I could definitely stomach it during the worst of my flu.
If you happen to catch what I got, get plenty of rest and you'll hopefully be back on your feet quicker than I was!
As some of you may have noticed, we just changed our shopping cart. The previous provider we were using - who shall remain nameless, but you know who you are - had some nasty habits that precipitated our eventual breakup.
Like letting critical bugs remain unfixed for weeks at a time, yet telling us that it would be fixed in 24-48 hours whenever we called into tech support. Or never assigning us a dedicated support rep so that each time we talked to someone about a problem, we had to take 1/2 hour to explain everything about ourselves again. Or never notifying us about outages. Or having pieces of their software that never, ever worked and that they had no intentions of fixing. Or ticking off our customers on a regular basis.
We could go on (there's a lot more). But we're very happy with our new provider so far. If you have any feedback for us, we're always willing to listen, and so far, our new shopping cart has been happy to oblige when we've had suggestions. Happy shopping!
P.S. If you're looking for a last minute Valentine's Day gift for him, be sure to get on down to your local retailer that carries Bacon Salt (call first, as many sell out fast), and get that bacon lover some Bacon Salt! It's the gift that keeps on giving for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
If you like doing things at the last minute like I do - I still haven't made it to the store yet - this would be a great Super Bowl party appetizer and was submitted by our old friend Aaron (who's been MIA lately - come back home Aaron!).
