When meat runs at .99lb (or less!) it's time try to stock up!
Split chicken breasts were on sale for .99lb and so was loin end pork roast.
I normally don't buy a lot of pork but at .99lb, I couldn't pass it up.
Ground beef was at 1.99lb; a little more than I prefer to pay but better than other stores have it priced right now, and I was getting quite low in my freezers. Ground beef can stretch far, fix up really quick, thaw pretty fast, and so it's really a blessing to have on hand.
So- how much did I buy?
40 lbs chicken @.99lb= $40
30lbs pork end loin @ .99lb= $30
30lbs of ground beef @ 1.99lb= $60
100lbs of meat for $130!
|one big box of pork loin|
|one big box of ground beef and one big box of chicken|
|When I got it home, I browned over 1/2 of the ground beef and boiled up almost all of the chicken,shredded it, and made broth.|
|I divided up some of the beef for meatloaves, meat balls, etc, then divided up the cooked meat, bagged, and dated.|
It was a lot of work when I got home (cooking, dividing, repackaging), but no more grocery shopping for a month -except for milk and eggs (in about 2 weeks)!
Praise the Lord!
