Broadbent is having a sale :

 

today only.   I recently , a few months ago actually , stocked up

 

not everything is 30 %  but a lot is

 

today only it seems

 

""  goes well with beans  "

 

Nice! I see their little country ham biscuit slices are 30% off.  Maybe not the lowest price per ounce for bulk ham but they are so very handy to have on hand, either for a breakfast sandwich or when a recipe calls for a small amount of diced ham.

I have several pounds of factory sealed Benton's and Broadbent's

 

bacon , in my freezer .  I had space

 

now I only use the " Seasoning " stuff , mostly bacon but some ham.

 

I also keep that Fz , and sealed

 

I open the bag , take out what I need , ' process '  for the end result  

 

( sliced , chopped etc )   then soak in cold water for a bit to remove some of the

 

salt.  then use

 

I also have a vacuum sealer , so I seal up that same bag , and pot it back in the freezer.

 

mostly because I can.

Sur la Table has their semi-annual cookware sale going on now. Some good prices on All-Clad, ScanPan, Staub and other heavy hitters. They're saying "Up to 55% off!"

I note the Le Creuset store has the same 20% discount as Sur ka Table and Williams Sonoma.  Any idea how long this sale is supposed to go on?

I'm told I am a weak woman.  We are getting a stimulus, right?  I ordered two Le Creuset pieces on sale from Williams Sonoma.  I collect Le Creuset cast iron,* not like I don't already own several.**

 

My yet unborn great grandchildren will bless me, even if my children won't.

 

 

 

*volcanique only of course.

**five six that I can count.

Yes, so sorry! Tomorrow will be April 13, and that is the last day of the sale. Guess I was stuck in a time warp.

Fortunately I have already overspent my wad on Le Creuset.  I need to venture outside to the ATM this afternoon and deposit $5 so my rent check hopefully won't bounce.

I saw the Le Creuset and Staub sales, variously on W-S, Sur La Table, and also Bon Appetit (or maybe Food 52?), and their sale prices are all pretty much on par with the every day prices on Amazon. Am I missing something?

Probably not.  Though I would note Le Creuset on amazon is typically from third party sellers.

How "scoopable" are they right from the freezer or do you freeze them in say, 1 tablespoon portions?  How long do they keep in the freezer?

the beef is a bit ' pasty '

 

the roasted chicken ( which i prefer to the reg lowe salt chicken , but I haven't had the reg lower salt chicken in a while )

 

and the turkey and Ham are lumps  that are soft enough to chisel out easily what you need w a heavy spoon.

 

if you choose to go low salt , there seem to be two version :  the no MSG has more salt than the other similar

 

so look at the salt content before you consider one or the other

 

I prefer the lowest salt  as I can add more of the base  to get to the ' salt point '   Im looking for

 

thus more flavor.    if salt is not an issue  for you ,  there is a wider selection of the regular stuff.

 

Ive been getting this stuff for years and am very happy with it.

 

they seem to have sales several times a year , so give them your email and that's how i know about it.
