There are a lot of pork chops out there this week. I think the Sprouts deal, with roasts and loin chops is the best deal–they’re the most versatile and freeze very well. The other specials are bone in or sirloin. There is also pork butt for $1/lb at HEB. That‘s the lowest I’ve seen in a while, and if you’ve got freezer space it’s worth stocking up. Here at Chez Cheepie we smoke them, but they’re also super simple to do in a crock pot or oven, just don’t let your bbq fanatic friends know.
Fiesta has the big sacks of chicken legs on sale again, with the Fiesta Limit in place. Remember these aren’t quite as pretty or as large as ones not bought in giant sacks, and may need some knife skills to be presentable. Given they’re 69c/lb, you’ll have room to practice. Don’t know what to do with all that chicken? Try this post from a while back.
Buy strawberries at Sprouts this week, the other places are more than twice as much.If you want organic, Wheatsville has them.
Apples are insanely cheap–conventional at 50c/lb at HEB, and organic for 48c/lb at Sprouts.
HEB’s got a product I haven’t noticed before that they’re calling Stoplight Peppers. It’s three colors of peppers in a package (get it, like a stop light? except in HEBland stoplights don’t have green. which pretty much fits with Austin traffic) for about 77c/pepper. Check them, though, since this is a classic produce manager way to try to get rid of stuff that might be bruised/dented/otherwise not perfect.
CORN! Yay! I know, I may be irrationally happy about this, but I love corn. Corn pudding, creamed corn, corn right off the cob–it’s all good. And this week from Fri-Sun they’re 8/$1 at Sprouts. So belly up to the big cardboard box and wedge yourself in between the other picky corn people and start peeling some husks back to make sure you don’t get a buggy one, then take ’em home to enjoy.
