When Pigs Fly

I pride myself on giving pretty good presents (handknit baby sweaters, anyone?), but this one may be the best.  Last year for Christmas, riding high on my cheese-of-the-month club success the previous year, I gave my brother and sister-in-law a membership in the bacon-of-the-month club.  Yes, bacon, delivered right to their door once a month.  This is not your Oscar Mayer grocery store bacon (although bacon is good stuff no matter where it comes from!); this is high-quality, thick cut bacon--applewood smoked bacon, Kentucky dry cured bacon, and so on.

This gem of an idea, comes from Zingerman's, an Ann Arbor institution, which I have missed terribly since I moved from Ann Arbor six years ago now.  (Every time I go back to A2, I go straight to Zingerman's for a loaf of their Parmesan pepper bread--so good!)

Anyway, the March shipment arrived while I was visiting my brother and his family this weekend, and I can confirm the reports that the bacon is awesome.  So I get credit for being the coolest sister in the world, which I think is an honor I rightly deserve!


  1. That is so funny, I had never heard of that until my SIL got it for her husband as a gift. They love it too!

  2. I am totally going to buy this for my sister for Christmas. I had no idea there was a bacon of the month club!
