Meat sale – Bacon, Beef, Burgers, Chicken and more

It’s that time again.  Zaycon foods is having another meat sale.  This time they have more than just Chicken Breast.  Bacon, Beef patties, Sausage links, Chicken, Steaks, Ground beef.

mmmm Bacon.

I am trying to decide what to get this time.  I have limited freezer space at the moment.  Summer is just around the corner so some steaks and burgers on hand is always a must.  I don’t think I can pass up the bacon, who am I kidding, there is no way I can pass up bacon, could you?  I may have to talk to some friends about splitting a couple orders.  Although, we could can some of the meat….  Canned chicken, canned beef, dehydrated ground beef (great for backpacking when you want to have meat with a meal and hunting is not an option).


I have posted about Zaycon foods before.
