Zaycon Bulk Meat Events

It’s time for another round of top quality meats in our area by Zaycon Foods, have you tried them out yet? If not, you should definitely do so now – call your friends to see if they want to go in with you or donate the portion you may not use to your local charity!

My family’s friendship with Zaycon Foods began in November 2010, over boneless whole chicken breasts, and let me tell you, I was shocked, surprised and SUPER happy with my decision to give them a try and have been pimping them out ever since!

Zaycon Beef Chubs

  • LFTB Free
  • Comes in a 40-lb case with four 10-lb chubs per case (approximate weight–see note below)
  • No chemicals, additives or water added to meat during processing
  • Processed at a USDA-inspected, state-of-the-art plant employing strict operating protocols (including HACCP) and the highest in food-safety standards
  • Prior to processing, inspectors from the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service randomly sample cattle under a monitoring plan and perform testing for antibiotic residues
  • USDA nutrition labeling standards defines “extra lean” and “lean” ground beef based on the lean/fat ratio. While not part of these guidelines, the term “super lean” is often used in the grocery sector to describe ground beef at the upper end of the “lean” category (i.e., “Zaycon Foods 93/7 Super Lean Ground Beef”). This ground beef product is 93% lean and 7% fat
  • [NOTE: This product is an approximate weight. Some cases will weigh slightly less than 40 lbs. Customers receiving cases less than 40 lbs will receive an exact credit representing this difference in their ZF account.] SOURCE

The Zaycon team is so efficient, you don’t even have to get out of you car or truck to pick up your purchases, they walk up with your order, put it where you ask and off you go to seal seal seal.

Cypress, Texas area pick up is Tuesday, December 11th! [Orders must be placed by 12/3/12, or before it is sold out]

  •  93/7 Super Lean Ground Beef $3.29 /lb [40 # units, $131.60/unit]

Check out Zaycon Foods here. I bet there is an event close to you, they are expanding their reach as the word keeps spreading about their products.

Zaycon Bulk Meat Events

Time for another round of high quality meat sales in our area by Zaycon Foods, have you tried them out yet? Seeing as the calendar reads that Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner, what better way to get prepared for your company and try out Zaycon Foods at the same time. It’s win-win and you will not be disappointed with the quality and taste.

I hit them up for 30 pounds of the hickory smoked bacon when they were here in January and let me tell you, I was shocked, surprised and SUPER happy with my decision to try out another one of their fantastic meat selections. I shared the cost of the bacon with my Mom and two other people from my couponing board on Facebook, so the price tag wasn’t too killer with people to split the pot… I think having 30# of bacon is great, but is a bit much for a family of 2.5. The bacon is natural and comes from local Southern and Midwest states; they are hickory smoked, medium sliced and sealed into four packages of 7.5 pounds each. Don’t be concerned when the strong men and women load your car with two boxes of bacon, they are 15 pounds each, perfect for taking to your friends house for easy sharing… or not ;)

Zaycon HamThe Carve Master Old Fashioned Ham - This Ham is made from fresh outside muscles only, for excellent flavor and texture, slow smoked with real apple wood to give the ham a unique true smoked flavor. With less than 10g of fat per 100g the USDA has approved this ham as LEAN, with this special cure there is no MSG, this ham is completely boneless, meaning higher yields and easily carved from end to end. The Ham is packaged by the case this includes two 10lb hams that are individually vacuum sealed and has guaranteed freshness up to 100 days.*

Zaycon BaconFresh Hickory Smoked Bacon - This bacon has had the same award winning cure since 1959, cured for a minimum of 24 hours, and hickory smoked for at least 7.5 hours, the smoking process includes only actual hardwood chips burned in the stocker, this creates the color and flavor that makes this cure so special, in addition to color and taste our bacon has been carefully hand trimmed from each belly for consistent sizing. Bacon is packaged in two 15lb boxes bringing the case total to 30lbs.*

The Zaycon team is so efficient, you don’t even have to get out of you car or truck to pick up your purchases, they walk up with your order, put it where you ask and off you go to seal seal seal.

Cypress, Texas area pick up is Wednesday, November 14th! [Orders must be placed by 11/6/12, or before it is sold out]

  • Carve Master Boneless Smoked Ham $3.29 /lb [20 # units, $65.80/unit]
  • Hickory Smoked, Medium Sliced Bacon $3.29/lb [30# units, $98.70/unit]

Check out Zaycon Foods here. I bet there is an event close to you, they are expanding their reach as the word gets out about their products.

Conversations With C

Last Saturday it was raining and I needed to run errands, so everybody hopped in the car and helped out. Ace Hardware for fertilizer [it's time to winterize, weed, and fungicide friends], Kohl’s for C’s bath mats, Sonic for Cherry Limeades and cheese sticks,  exploring model homes in a new master planned community [design ideas, y'all], Michael’s for Halloween/fall crafts and FINALLY Best Buy to purchase the Lion King on Blu-ray.

[After returning home]

C: I have so many things to do tonight, four things.

A: Oh yea? You’re a busy lady. What are you going to do?

C: I have to make my house and then eat dinner, make cake balls and the we’re going to watch the Lion King.

A: Wow! What’s for dinner? [We both already knew it was going to be my yummy mac and cheese because my recipe was sitting on the counter Friday after school.]

[Making Dinner]

C: I love Mac and Cheese.

A: I know you do, that’s why I make it all the time.

C: I think everybody should be given your recipe for mac and cheese when they are born… like, along with their birth certificate. It is delicious and everybody should have the recipe because it makes them feel good.

 A: Thanks babe!

Here’s the recipe [I am not sure where I got it from about a year ago, so if it is yours, let me know!]

“C Approved” Mac and Cheese [Serves 8-12]

Bread Crumb Topping:
2 tbsp. unsalted butter
¾ cup panko bread crumbs
1 tsp. dried parsley
Salt and pepper

Pasta and Cheese Sauce:
1 lb. pasta shapes
6 tbsp. unsalted butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. dry mustard
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
6 tbsp. all-purpose flour
2¼ cups low-sodium chicken broth
3½ cups milk
1 lb. Colby jack cheese, shredded
8 oz. extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
Ground black pepper

  • Preheat the oven to 400˚ F.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add the pasta to the water and cook just until it begins to soften, about 5 minutes. Drain the pasta and leave in the colander.
  • Bread crumb topping - Melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add in the panko and cook, stirring frequently, until the bread crumbs are a light golden brown. Remove from the heat and stir in the parsley. Set aside to cool.
  • Return the empty pasta pot to medium-high heat and melt the butter. Stir in the garlic, dry mustard, and cayenne, cooking just until fragrant, about one minute. Whisk in the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until golden, about 1 minute. Whisk in the chicken broth and milk and continue to heat, stirring frequently, until the mixture bubbles and thickens slightly, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the cheeses, whisking until completely melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir the drained pasta into the cheese sauce.
  • Pour the pasta and cheese mixture into a 9 x 13″ baking dish [or two 9" square baking dishes if serving 4, you can freeze/save the other dish for later]. Sprinkle with the bread crumb topping. Bake 30 minutes, until the sauce is bubbling and the bread crumbs are golden brown.

We like to enhance our Mac experience with crescent rolls to sop up the remaining cheese sauce… if there is any ;)

P.S. Here is the house C built. Isn’t it magnificent?

C Halloween House

P.S.S. We love the Lion King right now, I am a big fan of Rafiki because he wacks Simba on the head and said “Who cares? It’s in the past!”

P.S.S.S. There are A LOT more “likes” in this conversation, I spared you, you’re welcome.

Zaycon Bulk Meat Events

Time for another round in our area by Zaycon Foods, have you tried them out yet? If not, you should definitely call your friends to see if they want to go in with you, you will not be sorry!

I hit them up for 40 pounds whole chicken breasts last year and let me tell you, I was shocked, surprised and SUPER happy with my decision to give them a try. I shared the cost of the chicken with my Mom, so the price tag wasn’t too killer with someone to go in half… I think having 20# of chicken is quite enough for a family of 2.5. The boneless skinless chicken breasts are 100% natural and come from local southern and midwest states; they are cleaned up and placed in several unsealed bags, which once reaching 40# they are placed in one gigantic sealed bag and loaded up in super heavy duty cardboard boxes.

The Zaycon team is so efficient, you don’t even have to get out of you car or truck to pick up your purchases, they walk up with your order, put it where you ask and off you go to seal seal seal.

Friday, September 28 [Orders must be placed by 9/26/12, Chicken SELLS OUT quick]

  • Chicken Breasts $1.69/lb [40# units] Fresh Boneless Skinless

Check out Zaycon Foods here. I bet there is an event close to you, they are expanding their reach as the word gets out about their products.
