Food by the pound
In the Miamuh area they have these places (like Blue Sky) that sell already prepared dishes by the pound. This can be a life saver when trying to feed larger groups & parties.
Is there anything like that in the D.C. area or north of the Beltway? Specifically, I'm looking to buy 3 or so pounds of cooked bacon.
That's right! BACON!!!! muaaa ha ha ha ha.
If you have a Costco nearby, this is pretty good stuff but it's only par-cooked and needs additional cooking.
Thee per pound price may seem expensive but that's because a lot of the fat is cooked away. If you're getting 48-50 slices that's equivalent to about 2 1/2# raw weight. I've pretty much stopped making traditional bacon because this is so easy and unlike traditional bacon, there's no mess. I just put what I need on a paper towel and microwave for about a minute and a half.In a perfect world I'd prefer a thicker slice but this is fine.
