Happy Ad Wednesday!

I’m squeaking in under the wire to get the post up on Wednesday this week. I blame the equinox and Mercury retrograde. Or binge watching The West Wing. Reader’s choice.  Moving on…

Chicken leg quarters are at close to the lowest I’ve ever seen, which was 19c/lb about a decade ago.  Yes, it’s a huge bag and you’ve got to get them into freezable portions, but 28c/lb is seriously cheap chicken! When I freeze these, I split the leg from the thigh, but at this price I don’t mind spending a bit of time. This post details my thinking on how to cope with 20lbs of chicken legs.  My joke with DH is that it’s weird when chicken legs are often cheaper than the same mass of firewood, and has me thinking about things like how interesting it might be to throw chicken and rosemary in the fireplace and call it a day.

Central Market Garlic Fest continues. As far as I can tell, this means they’ve got a wider variety of garlic for sale than usual, and the faint tang of burnt garlic hangs over everything (at least on Saturday at the south location, maybe they were training a new garlic guy).

Sprouts has got apples and peaches for 48c/lb, which is a price that will have me making applesauce and freezing peaches. 

There are also some pantry staples worth stocking up on this week:

Del Monte canned tomato sauce is 79c/24oz. Yes, it’s a can of sauce, but since I’m going to add stuff to it anyway I’ve found it useful to have some around. They’re at Fiesta, along with the 99c bags of rice and cheap peanut butter.  Tuna and canned vegetables are super cheap at Randalls, but only from Fri-Sun. 

Finally, with Fall come the  Apple Wars. I’ll be listing the cheapest conventional and organic options, as well as good deals on some of the varieties that are popular.  Also with fall? Pomegranates! They’ll be 99c soon, but for now WF and Fiesta have them for $1.49. Yay Fall!
