I just looked at the sale paper for the grocery store that I shop at. They have there Pick 5 for $19.95 again. This is a sale of certain meats(fish, chicken, spare ribs, chicken-boneless, hamburger patties) You can mix and match the packages you just have to get 5 of them to get the sale price. I think I will have to stop and get some meat this week. There is no minium purchase either. I feel the need to stock up.


The butcher called and we should have our 1/2 of steer the first week of October. I can't wait. My big freezer is empty and ready for all that meat. I feel the need for a good steak.
