Two twelve-ounce packages of tasty bacon went back to Walmart today. I hope they get their money back from the processor! Monday, while I was still shaky and dizzy and feverish, I decided scrambled eggs and bacon would be good for me. As I stood there shaking and my hand trembling, trying to pick and peel off strips of bacon, all that happened was shredding and strings of bacon.
Really, I was ready to cry by the time I managed to pick off the single pieces. Usually, I just peel four slices off at a time. Let me back up. I detest bacon not done and soft on the ends. So, I slice the whole pack in half first thing. So, when I peel off a chunk of four pieces, I am really only eating two slices. Are you with me?
If I throw in the four slices still stuck together, I wait and pick them apart as they get warmer and begin to curl. It works. I tried that Monday, and all I got was 3.5 strings of bacon. Yes, I had four pieces of bacon. But, considering this was paper thin, I really got only 2 slices.
I am NOT a fan of thick bacon. That was not the problem. Too thin is obviously problematic, also. I want it just right. It's out there and some is now in my refrigerator.
This was local bacon, Pell City, as opposed to being a big national chain. Sorry, I went with Hormel.There are two local bacon factories, one three miles and the other six miles from me. Next time. Oh, forgot--one sets up at the market four blocks from me. Neither was open at the time of day I went shopping.
Walmart refused to give me cash or credit on a card because food with no receipt has to be traded for food. Bummer! I was in no mood to shop for food. I just wanted to get the bacon out of my refrigerator, NOW.
Tomorrow, I want a BLT. If not tomorrow, then Friday when exbf comes. I won't be having bread, just a BLT salad--bacon, lettuce, tomato, Miracle Whip.
I don't need apples but decided to get one Honey Crisp. She rung it up--$1.30 for one apple! So, I left it there. That brand is on sale somewhere. I don't buy bagged apples because I have gotten too many bruised or rotten ones in bags. No lectures! I have wasted too much money on bags. The one of me does not eat them fast enough.
Bacon? Do you have a favorite brand, flavor or cut? Are you frustrated over return policies that are weird?
