Happy Ad Friday!

Weekend shoppers, I’m here! Have no fear!

Midweek shoppers, I totally let you down. I want to blame the opera, because that sounds super cultured and educated, but it was more I wanted to watch Blacklist and Scandal. I will try to grow up.

Fiesta Limit, Going Viral

Fiesta has long had the ‘limit 2 with additional $10 purchase’ meat specials. I’ve used those sales to stock my freezer for years.  Recently Randalls had one, with brisket super-cheap and a limit of 2. 

Now HEB is joining in.

 Which is great. I love meat sales where I can fill up the deep freeze. This is the cheapest pork butt I’ve seen in a while, keeps in the freezer forever, and can be used in so many dishes.

Cheaper than tin foil and twice as tasty!

It’s also the simplest way I know to feed a crowd–make it ahead, pull it, and warm it up before people show. Put out rolls, coleslaw, tortillas, and pickled onions and you’ve fed 15-20 people for about $25.  

This deal starts tomorrow, so you’ve got time to rearrange your freezer.

Cheep cheep!
