Long weekend meals (and deals!)

August 1, 2019

Another long weekend is here and we are psyched. The forecast is calling for (mostly) sunny days and that means plenty of opportunities to get outside and enjoy summer. You could go hiking, head up north for the weekend, have a picnic in the park or at one of our beautiful local conservation areas, or have a backyard BBQ with friends. Or, maybe you just want to lie out on a lawn chair or backyard hammock and relax – the long weekend’s a perfect excuse for that, too!

Soak up the sun and eat well

If you’re heading to the cottage this weekend, consider packing a cooler full of your favourite VG Meats products. We’ve got several varieties of bacon (everyone’s favourite breakfast food!) including our coffee-rubbed cowboy bacon, our classic pork bacon and our incredible beef bacon. There’s also plenty of deli meat for sandwiches at lunchtime, and everything you could dream of for dinner – steaks, chicken, burgers, pork chops, sausages and more.

If it’s a big backyard BBQ you’re planning for, consider stocking up on hot dogs, hamburgers and chicken thighs – all delicious things that cook up fast and please a crowd. Or, for a smaller get together, consider grabbing a few of our amazing steaks – they’re always a hit! We’ve even got prepared sides in store to make your life easier.

Finally, if you’re having a quiet weekend on your own or with immediate family, remember that you can still eat like a king (or queen). Why not treat yourself to a Tomahawk or a Porterhouse, or spend some time experimenting with new cooking techniques? You could try smoking some ribs or roasting one of our pasture-raised chickens (maybe even in the BBQ!). Food is nourishment for our bodies but it should also bring pleasure, and there’s nothing like savouring a meal that was prepared with love. Even better? When you can sleep in because you don’t have to work the next day!
