About the Company
The Skillet Street Food began by Chef Josh Henderson in Seattle in 2007. What started as sales from his Airstream grew over the years and now in Seattle’s Capitol Hill is a Diner derived from this Street Food brand. The Skillet Bacon Spread has been featured on the CW11 and Today Show the past 2 years along with many other Food/Drink Top food lists and Articles. See them all HERE.
What is Bacon Jam?
This Bacon Jam, in particular that I was sent is made from Niman Ranch Bacon and blended with onion and Other spices.It can be used as a spread on crackers and even as an ingredient in meat dishes or salads. They have a great recipe list on their site. I spread some on a baguette and added feta and baked in the oven a few minutes for our Father’s Day BBQ.; Everyone loved it and that jar was asked to be passed around so everyone can see this unique spread I used. And being as I live just South of Seattle, it was a huge hit to hear of this coming from there.
This would be such a great buy for any food connoisseur or hard to shop for person in your life. I can see picking up a few jars and pairing with some crackers and a bottle of wine in a basket as a gift for someone.

Skillet Bacon Jam and other spreads can be ordered from here: USA & Canada and can also be found in retail stores such as your local Whole Food Markets and Metropolitan Markets. Find a list of retailers in your state HERE! You can also email for inquiries (firstname.lastname@example.org).

It has been a while since I have written a Product of the Week of my personal choosing. I did this as a new blogger to stay on track on being consistent at writing. I know I am always coming across products I love and mean to write about it, but I am always keeping up with other posts and reading content I can learn from to educate myself within the Blogging world. I like doing these posts because naturally people get loud about a product when they have a negative experience. I like to twist that around to give recognition when I have a positive experience.
As part of my Husband and I Sluka Team Fit 2012 I have been posting about, I have been a more leaner grocery shopper. Reading labels and buying fresh food. One of my favorite sections at the Grocery Store is the Authentic foods. So many offer low preservatives and sauces I can never perfect. Within the Asian foods, I LOVE A Taste of Thai products. I recently bought a can of their Coconut milk and Peanut Sauce Mix along with some fresh Vegis and Ramen Noodles (leaner and only 1 ingredient) and some Free-Range Chicken. What I got was AMAZING! I even had some peanuts I crushed and drizzled on top. I couldn’t wait to dig in and the whole family loved it. I scored enough as left overs for work and it was just as good on day 2! I almost forgot to shoot a picture before gobbling the last bit up…..
Disclaimer: I was in no way compensated for this review. My pick of the week products are of my own choosing because I know my readers can benefit from my opinions.
I Didn’t Take My Own Advise!
In my Original post I had mentioned that if you deplete yourself of Fats/Sugars, you can lower your Blood Sugars too much and that tells your body to release Insulin. When your body releases insulin, it sends the message to your brain that you are hungry and you find yourself eating more which will NOT help the weigh loss plan at all!
I started over the weekend and was proud at what I was serving my family! Organic/Free Range Meats, fresh Veggies and fruits. Brown wheats. No preservatives AT ALL (except Birthday Pizza at my son’s party-I only took a sliver)! I packed my lunch for work: Pure Peanut Butter, Fresh Jam on Crazy Mikes Grain Bread, carrots, yogurt w/ Fresh Granola. Today, I started feeling ravenous. I am not starving myself!? I eat great meals..and 3 of them (I am notorious for not eating breakfast and now I do). I keep some trail mix and carrots at work for snacking and I found myself wanting to snack and could not figure out why..heck! I ate breakfast after all! Then it hit me….SUGARS! As I think back, as healthy as all the foods are we are eating..with natural ingredients I am void of sugar! My Blood Sugar is low and I am starved (so I think). Mind over matter was not helping..I wanted lunch by 11am.
So 1 cup of Coffee w/ Bailey’s Caramel Creamer w/ lunch and that was it! I was good until dinner.
Remember to watch Sugar intake and do not skip that ingredient!!
If you have not stopped into Burger King lately, you may notice next time some new additions to their menu. I recently took a Gift Card and drove down to our local Burger King and brought dinner home. I don’t do that too often and the Boys loved it! I had combined the Gift Card with some coupons that I recently received in the Sunday paper. For $25.87 I got for the family 3 Whopper Jr, a Whopper, the NEW chicken BLT salad, 10 piece chicken Nuggets and 2 other 4-piece nuggets. 4 small fries and 3 small drinks and a kids meal for the youngest. He would feel jipped if I did not arrive w/ a BK kids box and toy! The other day my son and I stopped for a Frap and smoothie!
My husband, 14 year old and I devoured the salad before I remembered to snag a photo!My husband did leave the last Tomato long enough to allow color to the photo 🙂
I LOVED the Chicken BLT salad! It was just the right amount of Bacon, chicken and cheese that it was not too heavy or left guilt that I overate bacon and cheese in a healthy salad! They use Ken’s dressing which I love also. My husband and 14 year old commented on how much better their fries are. My husband made more than one comment on how good they are. My son’s Strawberry Banana smoothie the other day was awesome! The frap was delicious also. I did without the whip cream and drizzled chocolate so it would be that much better for those that do like the toppings! I am definitely impressed with the new menu and I know it will be a new stop for us for dessert and Fraps this summer!
My youngest was so excited to get a Happy Feet toy! His favorite Movie right now.
