Pork rind fun facts

A Great Rind for the Great Outdoors!

camping-with-pork-rinds
We’re Americans. We love to travel. We love the outdoors. Naturally, we love camping.

It’s National Camping Month and there is no better way for Southern Recipe to celebrate than to get out to a campground and gather round the fire. And we’re not forgetting to take our pork rinds with us.

Let’s talk camp food. Yes, you have your s’mores and wieners, but why not make things better than best with easy-to-make pork rind deliciousness?

  • Not exactly skinny dipping– You almost don’t need a fire with this Warm and Creamy Bacon Dip recipe (but you probably should light something so you can cook it). Southern Recipe pork rinds are the perfect vehicle to get this goodness to your lips.
  • 3 Letters is all you need– BLT! This is a dip that the campfire just adds a nice bit of love too (and that “love” puts the “L” in this BLT). Cook this recipe at your own risk! Once everyone tastes it, you may have to make 7 more batches and never get away from the fire ring!
  • Tex-Mex it– Creamy lusciousness scooped up in a pork rind– that’s the only way we can describe this Hot Black Bean and Corn Dip. We think you may have found your new camping favorite. Seriously, it’s that good!

Get out and enjoy the great outdoors at Camp Pork Rind! Southern Recipe will be there with you!

A Tribute to the Top Hog

fathers-day-pork-rinds2
Dads are the best. It’s true. And that’s not just because a dad wrote this Southern Recipe blog.

As a tribute to our fathers, we thought we would share a few of their words of wisdom and acts of “kindness”. Kids may say and do the darnest things, but dads may have them beat!

Tweet: Dear old Dad is talking about #porkrinds and relationships. @SouthernRecipe says watch out!Dear old Dad is talking about #porkrinds and relationships. @SouthernRecipe says watch out! http://bit.ly/2eMLr1L http://ctt.ec/4OV7K

Dad encouraged our Southern Recipe habit, but he also left us scratching our head over a few things until we found out we could Google all the answers to our questions. If you’re a dad, don’t let that stop you explaining things in your very own unique way.

Dad is never wrong, unless Mom tells us so.

  • Dad can fix it– You hear the stories or may have experienced them yourself. A washer breaks, the tub needs resealed, that tree in the yard needs to come down. Who needs a repairman or tree cutter when Dad can fix it? Uh, you probably do. Dad may know that the whatchamacallit needs connected to the whammer jammer (which is too close to the hoobie joobie), but make sure the hospital is on your speed dial. When he tells you to “run!”, run with all your might and don’t look behind you!

  • Watch what you eat– Besides your pals at Southern Recipe, Dad always know what’s good for you. That pie? Bad. You better give it to him to check. That cake? Terrible! Dad is going to have to be your taste tester. That super deluxe hamburger with everything? Yeah, that’s Dad’s too. It’s a good thing he’s watching out for you instead of his waistline.
  • The map isn’t the territory– Are we there yet? No, we aren’t. Dad’s keen sense of direction may not be as spot on as a hunting dog’s, but we may get there eventually if he would only stop for directions. But stopping isn’t an option- we’re on a one-way street in a bad part of town without stoplights. Two hours later, we’ve made it. It’s amazing how he always knows where he’s going even when he doesn’t.

Southern Recipe loves our Dads! Happy Father’s Day!!

  • The Right Pack: If you’re gonna be doing a bit of hiking on your trip, you’ll want to make sure you have a pack that’s light and won’t weigh you down. If your trip is only a few days long, your best bet is to pick up a 60-80 liter pack.
  • Catch some Z’s: All of that hiking and fishing is gonna wear you out, so it’s important to make sure you’ve got the proper sleeping bag and tent. You want a tent that is going to be weather resistant to, which means a “three-season” tent is your best bet of ensuring a good night’s sleep.
  • Fuel: All this activity is gonna require some serious fuel. Make sure you have portable and filling snacks on hand that will keep you full during your outdoor adventure. Southern Recipe Pork Rinds are protein-packed and will fire you up during your high-intensity trek!

With Southern Recipe in hand you can easily turn your next family camping trip into a memorable tradition
