Bacon for Christmas! It's what you buy the mom who has everything. Plus in true selfless son style you get to help her eat it -- at least some of it.
But where do you buy it? Her favorite is butcher-cut Nueske's. The places that send it every month are like $400 a year, crazy! So I'm thinking of buying half a dozen and freezing it.
The link below has a good collection. Anyone seen any better? Comparable?
