after the Winco haul , I did some marathon cooking, I de-boned chicken breast and made chicken stock and picked the vines for some meat-- enough for soup.
I cooked the six pounds plus pounds of hamburger amd pit some in small packages for taco meat or a casserole or sloppy joes. The other I put aside for Chilli.
We had chicken burgers for dinner. It's best to make something simple after marathon cooking.
Today I will do the kitchen management and clean out and organize the fridge.
The pantry is full and so are the freezers ( the fridge freezer is very small) and my husband. Ought a smaller one when we replaced the freezer.
The do it hike is coming very soon and we will be eating the pantry down. I'm sitting at 68.00 a week this month. I hadn't bought a lot of meat until this week. We had a lot of meat and I haven't seen a lot of sales. My pick for this week would be the while chickens of we really liked dark meat.
I haven't seen chicken breast cheap for two sales rounds now at Fred Meyers. I broke down and laid 2.28 for split breast. That's still a lot cheaper than sox dollars a pound and I got stock and chicken pieces. I'm still averaging 1.25 a meal so I'm not to upset.
A lot of thing are forecast to go up about 2-4 percent next year. I see some evidence of that now. Beef , chicken, eggs, cheese... To name a few. We can hedge ot a little for a short time, Stock so,e chicken and cheese and beef. Eggs will just have to bite the bullet. There are some substitutes for eggs in the old war time cookbooks.
