I’ve Fallen Down on Valentine’s Day and I Can’t Get Up

ValentinesDay-blog-1024x683 I've Fallen Down on Valentine's Day and I Can't Get Up

Ok, the most dreaded of all the holidays is fast approaching … that’s right, we dare to utter the words, Valentine’s Day! Don’t worry guys, we’ve got you covered (you’ll thank us later, ladies). So many questions, so few answers … until now.

  1. Chocolates may be trite, but not if you show your true manly self by coating Southern Recipe Original Flavor Pork Rinds with chocolate. Nobody can resist this double trouble snack.
  2. You never, ever, never-ever ask a woman, “What do you want for Valentine’s Day?” The best present is to show that you “get her,” which means you don’t have to ask. Just listen to her, she’ll throw you a few bones. Look for comments like, “I really need a _____,” “Her necklace is so beautiful,” or “We’ve never been to that restaurant!” If she says anything like this, take the clue.
  3. You’re not 15 years old, avoid any stuffed animal holding a red heart-shaped box. In fact, bypass the entire red aisle at the local drug store.
  4. This day is not all about material things. Don’t buy the first thing you see on Amazon just because you can get it delivered the next day. No girl wants an electric razor (unless she hints, see tip #2). She’ll be more likely to let her legs go prickly in protest than use it. And no win in that one.

And remember, this day is about you and her, and about celebrating your relationship together. The most important thing is to give her your attention and show her you care, but with your own personal twist.

Super Fun For The Super Game

sr-blog-jan-3 Super Fun For The Super GameEven if your team didn’t make it to the Super Game, you’ll want to get ready for the biggest “homegate” of the season. Here are a few tips to keep the action going for every football fan:

1. Be aware that a few attending your party may be less than thrilled “fans”. Consider setting up an alternate room for their watching pleasure or set up a gaming area. There’s nothing worse than a 2 point game and a bored pacing spouse.

2. Food keeps everyone happy. Put together a spread that’s easy to replenish. Make a balanced selection of hot and cold choices. Make it easy for your guest to pick up on the run and eat with their fingers. Try our Hot and Spicy Pork Rind Chicken Wings, warm BLT Dip and Walking Pork Rind Tacos. Plus, you’ll have an easier time cleaning up.

3. Celebrate with your own touchdown dance. Think you got the moves? Show ‘em, and you could win $2,500! It’s fun … enter for your chance to win cash and pork rind prizes.

4. Game out of hand? If the score gets out of hand, don’t give into changing the channel. Remember, some of the most entertaining and creative TV all year is the +$3 million commercials. Never, ever talk while the commercials are playing. That’s a sure fire way to get designated to the kid’s TV.

No Need To Bootleg These Pork Rinds

sr-blog-jan-2-1024x513 No Need To Bootleg These Pork RindsJust because it’s National Bootlegger’s Day (observed on the 17th of this month) doesn’t mean we’re suggesting that you fire up the backwoods still. We’re just giving a nod to a piece of Americana.

Fun fact: in the 1880’s the term “bootlegger” was used because one would conceal a flask of liquor in the top of the boot. Although a more familiar use of the term came in the 1920’s with Prohibition.

So, in honor of this day, we’ve paired our Hot & Spicy Pork Rinds with a twist on the classic Mule drink.  This Kickin’ Mule cocktail starts with tequila and end with a slice of jalapeño for added kick. Please enjoy the crunch responsibly.

Back To The Race

sr-blog-jan-1-1024x513 Back To The RaceNow that you have packed away the ornaments, dragged the tree out to the curb and took down the outside Christmas lights (or at least turned them off, hey we wouldn’t want to burn any bulbs out for next year). It’s time to get back to the hustle of your everyday routine, which by all accounts seems a heck of a lot busier now than it was just last month. We may not be able to help with getting from point A to point B in your fast-paced life, but we can help you to slow down with these slow cooker recipes.

Cheesy Cowboy Casserole: Add a little yippee-ki-yay to your daily routine with an easy dish that’s perfect for any chilly day. Add a sweet twist by adding Southern Recipe Bar-B-Que Pork Rinds.

Chili Mac n’ Cheese: Throw out the traditional so-so Mac n’ Cheese recipe by adding the secret of chili. It’s beefy serves up well with Original Southern Recipe Pork Rinds.

Crockpot Pork Roast: A five minute, five ingredient meal that’s ready after a long day? Nothing is easier. Makes enough for lunch the next day … just add a side of Southern Recipe Salt & Vinegar Pork Rinds and relax.

Let’s Give Thanks for Family

We’ve been around long enough to know that you don’t get between family and their traditions. And Thanksgiving traditions seem to be one of those holidays that takes no prisoners. In fact, for more than 60 years our family tradition has been to make the Thanksgiving dinner as pork rind friendly as possible!

You better not even think about making cornbread without Southern Recipe Cracklins, and the Thanksgiving stuffing better have Southern Recipe Pork Rinds mixed in or you just might have a fight on your hands.  Cracklin-Cornbread-150x150 Let’s Give Thanks for Family

Whether the holiday dinner is simple or grand, whether the gathering is small or huge, whether your football team wins or not … remember, it’s the company you keep that matters.
