Country Bob's

Al Malekovic of Country Bob's products offered to send me some free product coupons in the hopes that I would write a review of Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce. I was honored since I'm already a fan of their products.

I love to use Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce for dipping sauce, for adding some zip to my soups and stews, and for topping sandwiches.

They also have great recipes. You can find their recipes at and you can pick up a free brochure at some stores where you find their products.

Country Bob's products are great tasting and can be used for lots of things. Don't just take my word for it. Ask for your own free coupon for Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce here:

I tried the Corn Pone pie recipe out of the Country Bob's Recipe Collection brochure. I'm posting it below since I don't see it on their website. It was easy to make and a hit with the family. It's like a chili with a cornbread topping . . . very tasty!

Corn Pone Pie

1 pound ground beef
1/3 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon shortening
1 cup stewed tomatoes
1 cup Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce
2 tablespoons chili powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 (16 ounce) can kidney beans
1 (6 ounce) package corn bread mix.

Cook the gound beef with the onion in the shortening in a skillet until brown and crumbly; drain. Stir in the tomatoes, Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce, chili powder and salt. Simmer, covered, for about 15 minutes. Discard about half the bean liquid. Stir the beans with the remaining liquid into the skillet. Pour the mixture in a greased casserole. Prepare the corn bread mix according to the package directions. Pour the batter over the ground beef mixture. Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 6 servings.

Another neat thing about Country Bob's is their CEO. From their website: " We have placed true ownership of Country Bob, Inc. in the hands of God. "Christ is our CEO" and He is an Awesome Boss!

This is a company with great products. Besides the All Purpose Sauce that is available in regular and spicy flavors, they offer seasoning salt and barbeque sauce.

Please visit their site, request a free coupon, and read up on this great company.

Under NAIS every single livestock animal in the United States will be identified and tagged. All livestock animal movements will be tracked, logged and reported to the government. Big factory confinement farms are allowed to use a single ID for thousands of animals. Small farmers, pet owners, and homesteaders will have to tag and track every single animal, in most cases using electronic ID.

There are NO exceptions - even small farms that sell direct to local consumers will be required to pay the fees and file all the paper work on all their animals. The USDA has not done a cost-benefit analysis. Based on estimates from Australia and England, NAIS could cost anywhere from $30-$69 per animal on average. The costs include the tags, the labor and equipment needed to tag each animal and file reports of the movements within 24 hours, and the massive databases needed to track over 100 million animals. Factory farms can use group ID to avoid many of the costs, while small farmers could face even higher costs.

Those who refuse to cooperate with NAIS will be subject to heavy fines or even criminal penalties. NAIS is not legislation but a program designed by USDA bureaucrats with the help of businessmen and manufacturers of ID tags.

Please vote to stop the tracking of livestock animals for pets or small farmers....see below (the vote is to make non-funding of this invasive program a top ten priority to the new administration)
Pass this on if you know anyone that is interested in supporting small farmers.

The private website,, will present the "Top 10 Ideas for America" to the Obama Administration on Inauguration Day. "Stop NAIS" has made it to the second round of voting! It is competing against 86 other ideas to see if it can make it into the Top 10. The second round of voting will end at 5 pm next Thursday, January 15.


STEP 1: If you are not already signed up for the site, register at:

STEP 2: Go to

Voting ends at 5pm ET on Thursday, January 15

Be sure to click the box labeled "vote!" to the left of the Protect Our Food Supply -- Stop NAIS! Simply leaving a comment does not count as a vote. The box should change color and the text will change to "voted." You may have to try a couple of times.

STEP 3: Email all your friends, and ask them to vote also!
STEP 4 (optional): The most important thing is the number of VOTES that the idea gets. If you want to leave a comment after you have voted, think in terms of what will encourage other people to vote to stop NAIS. Keep your comment short and clear.
Remember that Stop NAIS! is competing against all of the other ideas for one of the Top 10 slots. Only the Top 10 will be presented to the transition team.

Thank you!
