I am truly in mourning here today.
I just discovered that we are down to our last package of bacon.
Once upon a time there use to be regular bacon deals when I could stock up on that magical meat product until the next deal rolled around.
The last bacon stock-up deal was at Price Chopper back in 2010. You can read about it HERE.
If you don't want to look, the deal was 4 packs of bacon for $10.98 total and a $7 Catalina Q.....so after the 1st transaction I was paying $1 a package for 1lb. of bacon.
Stupidly easy and cheap!!!
Well, we are down to the last package.
And while I KNOW in this economy and inflationary period that I won't find $1 bacon now, I've been looking around for the last 2+ months for a real deal on bacon.
And the best I've been able to come up with is $3.49 a package....and only once that low. The other best prices have all been about $4 a package.
And I'm having a hard time getting myself to pay that for bacon.....because I hold out hope of finding it for a better price after sales/Qs/whatever.
So I shed a tear today for the depletion of my stash of "the gods elixir".
Bacon, how we hardly knew ye......
And since I don't have any pork products to fry up this morning I rustled up my "go-to" breakfast instead.
Have a look at my "go-to" breakfast.
It's plain Greek Yogurt(for my digestion).
I put a tablespoon of flax seeds(for my heart) on it.
Then I put a teaspoon of local honey(for my allergies)on it.
Finish it off with a 1/4 cup of granola with nuts and raisins(nuts for protein and 'cuz I like granola)on top. If I don't have granola I break up some walnuts and add those instead.
Along side is a banana, though sometimes it's an orange or an apple or some other whole fruit. The fruit is to help get things moving....if you know what I mean. ;-)
It also helps ward off scurvy, you know, if I ever decide to take to the sea and become a pirate.
In warm months I have a big glass of ice water, in cold months a big mug of red zinger herbal tea or something similar to wash this all down.
What price are you willing to pay for bacon?
What is your "go-to" breakfast?
