September 13th, 2012
Did you know?! September is a month full of many food-related promotions. More specifically, to name a few, September is:
- National Chicken Month
- Better Breakfast Month
- National Food Safety Month
For National Chicken Month, what better way than to cook meals using Old Neighborhood Shaved Chicken Breast? Made from 100% skinless chicken breast and being 97% lean, our shaved chicken breast is shaved thinly for your convenience, thus making it great for BBQ, fajitas, stir-fry, calzones, salads, wraps, and sandwiches! If you need a few ideas for meals, you can check out our shaved chicken recipes.
If none of those catch your interest, note that you can also check out the recipes for shaved steak and shaved pork, as they are practically interchangeable!
Touching on Better Breakfast Month, you can enjoy a few hearty meals in the morning to jump start your day! A few ideas are: Chef Rick’s Corned Beef Breakfast Scramble using Old Neighborhood Corned Beef Breakfast, and Thalia’s Cheese Steak Omelets with Mushroom, Pepper, and Onion or Broccoli Rabe and Aged Provolone. Hopefully, these can inspire you to create other healthy breakfast meals using our Old Neighborhood products.
And of course, Food Safety Month! The theme for 2012 is “Be Safe, Don’t Cross-Contaminate”, which is pretty straight forward. However, here are a few other safe reminders. Remember that it is always important to keep your meat refrigerated or frozen as directed before use. When you are grocery shopping, try to purchase your cold meats last to ensure that they remain cold as long as possible. Also, it would be helpful to have an igloo or a cold bag to help maintain a cooler temperature as you’re going home from the store. Note that blown packages are a big no-no when it comes to food safety. Don’t forget to check the “use by” or “best by” dates!
Enjoy the remainder of September!
