  • $5/lb for corned beef!

    Just sayin’. Things are getting scary. They used to practically give this stuff away. Saw NY strip was almost $15/lb. Gonna have to start eating squirrels soon!

    We buy what is on sale and plan out meals accordingly. I bought a whole Top Round 2 weeks ago @ $2.98/lb. I cut it up and vacuum sealed the portions. The same with Chicken breast, thighs, leg quarters and Pork specials.
    How I plan meals: Pick the meat, pick a country, supplement with corresponding sides.
    Example: Chicken, Germany, Schnitzle, Warm German potatoes, braised cabbage, or glazed carrots, German Peach tart.
    Beef, Russia, stroganoff, egg noodles, green veggie...broccoli, brussel sprouts or asparagus, salad,
    Pork, Asia/China, Chinese ribs or loin, home made fried rice, white rice or home made dumplings, julienne onion, carrots, celery, cabbage,
    Chicken, Caribbean or India, curry, rice, veggie, plantains, salad.
    Meatless Monday, Italian, spinach & 3 cheese lasagna, salad, tomatoes, garlic bread.

    Tonight.....Beef, American, London Broil, Potatoes...mashed, twice baked or hassle-back, Brussel Sprouts, Tomato salad, Apple Cobbler.

    If you plan ahead, you can help buffer the high cost of food. It’s still expensive as heck, but you buy ingredients on sale and keep the pantry stocked.
    Y’all are welcome to dinner anytime...if you dare drive into a Miami suburb. Lol
    Bon appetit, buon appetito, buen provecho, let’s dig in.

      I too only buy what’s on sale.
      Freeze until needed.

      Only issue is many times I forget to unfreeze, then run to the store and buy normal priced meat.

      Yea. Been there, done that. I hate last minute defrosting, especially chicken. You always end up with cooked blood that didn’t defrost out. Off to the store for fresh drumsticks.

      Where's the Cuban food I learned to eat the good stuff in Hialeah and Miami over the decades, some of the best food comes from the food trucks where they don't speak English and I speak paquito Espanol!!!

    All I can say is corned beef & cabbage is one of my favorite meals so I'll gladly pay $5/lb for it.

    Sounds like you were shopping for your St Patrick's day dinner. I know I'll be eating later this week.

        I got a nice flat cut corned beef brisket from Costco yesterday for $4.49 lb. It was $7.99 at Wegmans. I hope nobody buys them and they go on sale after St. Patrick’s day.

              Food costs have skyrocketed. The utilities will be next. We are being screwed by the money printers.

                  Lol. I hear ya, brother. We have a saying, “ bueno, bonito, barato”. Translated, it means, “ good, pretty and cheap”.
                  I love Cuban/Spanish food and make all the traditional dishes. Grandma taught me how to cook. I still like to keep it interesting and vary the menu with international dishes.
                  Tomorrow...March 15....Chicken Caesar salad, for the Ides of March. Et tu, Brute?

                    You ain't kidding.. We spent $400 a week (family of 6) for years.. My oldest is 30.. I can't imagine being able to feed my clan for $150 a week 15 years ago.

                      Just got the flyer for Fresco, a Winn Dixie partner. This is the beef I mostly buy. USDA Black Angus Top Round. Then, cut it up at home and get a bunch of meals. London Broil, flank steak, stew beef, thin cut steaks, lean ground beef. $2.98/lb. Gotta find the sales.
                      I also was in the mood for Apple pie and had some Apples and pie crust (also on sale) in the freezer. Made that yesterday. It’s half gone already. Yum.
