At work we have this really great tradition that we call a “Vacation Tax Table.” Whenever employees go away for a trip, they are “required” to bring back a treat or some goodies to share with the rest of the employees. We’re starting to get much bigger as a company so it’s hard to bring back enough for everyone to have a taste of something, but it’s also challenging to make sure everyone knows that it’s still a tradition! I just went away to San Diego last weekend and completely forgot to bring something back.
Last month, a co-worker of mine traveled to Wisconsin and Colorado and brought back some locally sourced bacon jam that I became OBSESSED with. Left out on the table with slices of toasted bread and crackers, I placed myself directly in front of the food and munched for a straight hour. It was too good, I couldn’t leave! I don’t remember the brand that made it, but if I did, I would have it specially delivered to me… forever. Seattle’s Skillet makes a very well known bacon jam as well so I’m headed home next month to give it a try to see how it compares! Hopefully it’s just as good and if it is…well then it will be much easier to obtain when I need it!
