A few weeks ago bacon was on sale for $3 a pound so I bought three. Of course, bacon being plentiful we immediately cooked it up in the next few days. I went to buy more, cheapest was $5 for a pound so I bought one.
Last time I was at the store there were no specials and not much bacon to speak of.

Yeah, been a lot more cooked breakfasts around here in the last couple of weeks. That said, I got a few packets while at the shops on the weekend, and I should be good *thinks about rate of bacon consumption* till the weekend. Hmm, maybe I will have to think about rationing...

Wait, are you saying that people have been wiping their asses with bacon because of the toilet paper shortage?

If you could bacon pigs like you milk cows this wouldn't be an issue. Think it out.

Your fat neighbor will start looking like a crispy pork breakfast product after a couple of mornings.

"protein plant" makes it sound like they make potted meat food product.

Forget the bacon, your dog is going to revolt if the steak facilities close shop.

Consider the inhumane industrial conditions pigs are raised in, they're not happy about their death sentence being delayed either.

No bacon. No TP.  No rice.  No flour.   Rations on butter.  Rations on diapers.

You wonder why there's no ammunition?

Kosher Salt, Pork Belly, Pyrex Pan + week
if you got a cold smoker more power to you, otherwise just slice, fry and enjoy
If you can't find a pork belly, then buy a tenderloin, and brown sugar or maple syrup brine for a week or two and have at it

There's no excuse for that.

Feral hogs usually have no season and no bag limit. Watch your backstop.

I have 8 pet goats here at my house and a couple donkeys to guard them.
My neighbors have already started talking about eating my goats if it gets bad.
Going to have to start arming my donkeys soon i fear.

<CSB> Growing up in the country and later transplanting to the city, I don't get the slightest bit squeamish about the meat slaughtering and packing process. When I was a kid my parents bought a steer and 2 sow directly off a friend's farm, took them to the packing house, and stocked up the two deep freezers for the entire year. Fast forward to raising my kid in the burbs, I decided early on she would understand where her food came from so I took her on a few day trips to local farms that had kids' days and such. To add a little dad humor I'd call the piglets, "bacon bits" "baby-q-ribs" and the large sows "ham-antha" etc. 

A few years later the school she's in decided to take them on a field trip and teach the city kids where their food comes from and they went to this little farm that delicately describes the process of raising food to 8-year olds and I had forgotten all about the farm trips we took when she was 3 & 4. On the bus ride home my little angle grossed out the entire class by raving about how cute the little bacon bits and were they'd be even cuter on her salads, how she couldn't wait for the spicy pork loin she knew she was having for dinner. She also quoted my famous pig wrapped steer walked by a fire designation for Filet Mignons.  

When the teacher called the word she described my daughter with was, "Carnivorously excited."

I just replied, "Ask the kid about broccoli, she loves that too and will tell you how I freaked her aunt out when I was a kid by telling her that the 'flowery ends' of broccoli were toxic, and that it took my mom 3 years to get sis to eat her broccoli. She'll follow that up by shoving a whole floret in her mouth and telling you how delicious poison trees are. It's twisted but my kid loves all food and gets excited to try new food, don't complain."

She's going to be pissed if we're out of bacon in 3 weeks.

I thought we weren't eating enough bacon.  Make up your minds!

Soon, Canada will offer their bacon in exchange for the PPE that the USA pirated from them.

Only Canadian bacon isn't quite what you'd think...

There's plenty of fresh toilet paper in your backyard. Look for a plant with waxy leaves that grow in groups of 3. The oils are a disinfectant.

I bought turkey bacon. The husband insists that's not real bacon.

Calm yer tits, Subby. It's not a shortage. It's just one plant that shut down and production is being diverted to other plants.

Bacon, I have. What I also have is about 10lbs of fancy premium bread flour and I can't find any DAMN BREAD YEAST. I'm seriously considering making a sourdough starter, but it seems like such a commitment. Plus I'd have to feed it half my flour stockpile before it would be ready to use.
 
2020-04-09 1:32:14 AM  
I don't get it, out of all the panic buying, bacon was pretty much untouched.

Now people think they need it?
