I have had a hard time getting to the blog this week.
Do you work on preparedness/food storage?
This week (until next Tuesday) Van Camps Pork and Beans are on sale 3/$1.00 At our local FRESH MARKET. (Formerly Albertson's) If you are not in the Salt Lake area, check your local FRESH MARKET ad.
------------ THREE CANS FOR ONE DOLLAR------------
If for nothing else than giving to the FOOD BANK. It is a high protein/high fibre food.
I use pork and beans all summer for BBQ beans in a hurry.
WHEN BUYING FOR PREPAREDNESS, CHECK EXPIRATION DATES. I MAKE SURE I HAVE AT LEAST 18 MONTHS.
QUICK & EASY BBQ BEANS
In a pan, saute' bacon and finely diced onions until crisp. (I usually start with already cooked from SAM'S) Toss in some fresh garlic and dehydrated onions (if you did not already use fresh).
Open 5+ cans of beans. Drain off the top liquid and remove the "pork piece".
Put beans and pan contents into microwave dish. Add lots of your favourite BBQ sauce. I use SWEET BABY RAY'S or HUNTS.
Cover and microwave about 5 mins.
You can also toss a can of pork and beans into soup.
Man I love bacon. I do not eat it much, and hate dealing with the cooking mess. Here are 3 bacons that I use.
#1 Sam' Club pre-cooked. (Costco has it, too.) Low in fat and quite convenient. Also lower in flavour.
#2 HORMEL MICROWAVE READY- This is 4 pouches of Ready to cook (uncooked) bacon. Each pouch has 4 slices of bacon. The bacon is cooked in the pouch. It is easy and not messy. Great for sandwiches (bacon and garden tomatoes. mmm). I pay under $4.00 a box for this at WINCO. It is a 12 oz. box and must be kept in the fridge.
#3 HORMEL REAL BACON BITS-At Super Walmart this 3 oz. bottle is about $1.75. It can stay on the shelf until opened and then goes in the fridge. One thing I love about this is that it is shelf stable and does not expire until 2013. The jar is equal to 12 slices of bacon. It is also lower in fat. I use this for recipes, in eggs, on salads...
