I’m starting this at 23:02. Yes, my computer is on military time. No, there is no good reason at all other than for my offspring to moan when they ask the time and I tell them it’s 18:42. The moaning means I’m parenting right. That’s what the parenting books I don’t read say, I figure.
In grocery news! CORN. 6/$1. It’s no 12/$1, but it’s still cheep and you know how I feel about corn.
Remember that ’50 Ways to Cook Corn on the Cob’ link I shared? And then I made like eight of them, and my family thought I was maybe on the opposite of the Atkin’s diet? I’ll go dig that up tomorrow. Tonight I’ve got a round-up to post. To the circulars!
Jazz apples $1.47/lb
Campari tomatoes, 16oz 98c/lb
HEB pork italian sausage chubs, 16oz. $2/ea
HEB seasoned chicken fajita leg meat $1/lb (value pack)
HEB natural ground turkey chub, 16oz. $1/ea
Note: Some Cheepsters have found quality issues with the ground turkey on sale this week. Use your judgment, and maybe look closely if you choose to purchase it.
many kinds of melons 98c/lb
Vidalia onions 50c/lb
whole seedless watermelon, organic $3.98/ea
bulk peanuts $1.99/lb
bulk Thompson raisins $1.99/lb
whole seedless watermelons $3.97.ea
green bell peppers 50c/ea
chicken leg quarters, jumbo bag 47c/lb (usually ~10lbs)
pork country style ribs $1.47/lb (great for carnitas in an Instantpot!)
bone-in pork sirloin chops 89c/lb
India Gate basmati rice, 10lbs $7.99/ea
pork butt roast 88c/lb (limit 2)
Russet potatoes, 5lbs 98c/ea
beef bone-in chuck steak $1.97/lb
beef back ribs $1.67/lb
Note: This is a lot of meat for a Fiesta list. The pork butt is at a serious stock-up price. The chuck steak is a good price, but I’m not doing pot roast for months so I’ll pass. Beef back ribs is not something I’m familiar with (we mostly just smoke pork ribs), but at that price I’ll make beef stock and maybe smoke a half rack to see what happens. The sacks of chicken legs need back portions removed (again, stock), so if you’re not one to process it’s not worth it. And note, those pork chops are sirlion, not loin, and they’re always tougher.
fresh French bread 99c/ea
USDA choice beef brisket, whole in bag $1.97/lb (limit 2)
selected Lucerne cheese , 32oz. $5/ea
raspberries, 6oz. $1.50/ea
pork butt roast 99c/lb (limit 4. if you’re buying 4, though, just go to Fiesta)
Happy shopping, Cheepsters! I’m over an hour into Friday at this point so I’ll change the name of the post, but hopefully I’ll be back to Wednesdays soon. Wish me luck.
