bringin' home the bacon

i've seen lots of faboosh posts on father's day gift ideas, but i thought i'd share with all of you what i just got for my pops. he is going to DIE of excitement. and possibly a coronary when he's finished with it.

my pops is a good ole southern farm boy. and like any good southern farm boy, he loves him some pork products. specifically, bacon. so imagine my delight when i opened this week's garden & gun voice of the south e-mail and found the most brilliant father's day gift idea. EVER.

a bacon of the month club. purchased through ted's butcherblock, a gourmet butcher shop in charleston, you can get 3 months for $40, 6 months for $75, or a year for $150. right now, you can only order this by calling or e-mailing the store directly. i e-mailed them on tuesday and got a very friendly response within a couple of hours from ted himself. i purchased the 3 month supply. it will run out right around my dad's birthday, so if he likes it, i'll just extend it as his birthday gift.

i think the real question is, if he likes it half as much as i think he will, when will mi madre cut him off?

Haha very clever idea! I knew they did beer of the month and cake of the month and cookie...etc. but bacon is one I was unaware of! Maybe I should do beer for my dad... I don't think he needs anymore bacon :-P
