Food Preservation with Simple Truth
Food Preservation with Simple Truth

Ever take photos to capture a special moment? Most of us have. That way, when we look to those images, we can reflect on the joy that was preserved. I tend to take photos but not print them out. I know they’re available if I should want them. My husband, on the other hand, also takes photos but prints them almost immediately. He’s great about sharing them with the people featured and keeping them organized by dates. You probably have established a pattern about taking photos, printing them, sharing and organizing them. The basic intent of the whole photo capturing activity is to help us preserve the special moments in our lives.

Who wants bacon? That was a question I didn’t even have to ask when I recently prepared some of the Simple Truth Uncured Bacon in our company’s Break Room. Just the smell of the bacon drifting down the hallway enticed people to stop by with hopes of getting a sample. What a big hit! The co-workers that tasted it were asking me, “Where do I get this?” “What’s the name of it?” ”How is it different?” You may have seen the recently released Simple Truth Uncured Hickory Smoked Bacon and wondered if you should try it. My coworkers and I would say DEFINITELY! It’s a wonderful tasting product.

Do you have a favorite shirt? Most of us do. Mine is a medium blue, lightweight v-neck sweater that goes with almost everything.
