I'm in Love

with the old meat bin at the grocery store. That's what I call it. I'm sure they call it something that sounds much sexier. Needless to say that when it comes to buying red meat the old meat bin and I are monogamous.

Today, I was able to get hamburger meat for $1 a pound, Extra Lean Stew meat for $2 a pound and a rump roast for $4. I got at least 6 meals worth of meat for $10.

I threw the meat in the freezer and predict that next week tacos, roast and stew will be on the menu. What's even better is I already have most of the grocery's I need to complete these meals.

As for this week, I am hoping that after I make the tortellini tonight and a pot of pinto beans tomorrow, the ham will be all gone. I have a sneaky feeling I am going to have to pull one more itteration of ham and something out of the air to get down to the ham bone and make the pintos.

Any ideas other than the standard stuff you find on the internet when you search leftover ham?


  1. I buy the meat specials often, too. Else we'd hardly ever eat meat!

  2. I am still enjoying the 99 cent chicken i was lucky to get....love the "old meat bin"...

  3. Old meat bin...hmm... doesn't sound too sex-ay, you're right. Sounds like a good place for deals though.

  4. I bought organic lamb chops for $3/lb. recently. Awesome score!

  5. The old meat bin has been cheating on you, I got 10 1 lb. rolls of Tennessee Pride Sausage out of it for .29 cents each just yesterday :)~

  6. Old meat scares me. I admit it. I'm paranoid that we're all going to get ecoli or something...What a wuss I am, eh?


Don't be a wimp. Talk to me!
