It’s time again. Lots of holiday sales on roasts and produce, not just turkeys! I’ve been trying to cook from the freezer to make space for the new deals–it’s always much easier to do when the weather is cooler. Stew, curry, and stocking up on stock are all somehow easier for me when the weather gets at least a bit autumn-ish.
You feel better now, don’t you? Fall is good!
I’ll be cooking up a lot of potatoes on the cheep this week! 19c for a pound of comforting starch? Sign me right up for that!
I’ll also be getting the super-cheap frozen turkey at Fiesta, possibly two. Other things on my list are cranberries, celery, pineapples and cereal.

Celery is on sale everywhere. Wheatsville still lists their price by the pound, which I might have to visit with them about because seriously, that makes zero sense. While I’m talking to them I might bring up the fun fact that celery was once the caviar of the vegetable world.
What? You didn’t know that celery, now the humble ranch-to-face delivery system, lived once in expectation of single task glassware? Fancy folks of a Victorian sort would put celery in a vase on the table, thus conveying their rareified air to people of a similar fancy. Cheepie wants you to know this sort of thing, in case you wind up a time traveler. I don’t want you to blow your cover because you laugh when you see the celery vase on the table.
Gotta have one? Want to buy me one? Here’s a whole storeful! The more you know. Cheepie cares.
Happy shopping, Cheepsters!
