Not that I've ever had cucumber in a drink but

Bought some olives from the cart today. When I got home I discovered it was $15 worth

I haven't had a duck in ages because they got pricey, but No Frills came up with these today.

Superstore advertising shoulder picnic roasts @ 99c lb.

You can never tell what it is until you look. Sometimes they are more like Hams, sometimes they look like nice Pork and capable of producing some nice crackling.

Stepdaughter went to check today - she works near there. She came home with the biggest piece of meat that I'd seen not hanging on a butcher's hook. Enormous. But we discovered it was two. Just over $20 total.

We managed to cut one into two. The other one I shall cook Sunday and we'll live on it the rest of the week.

Just noticed the flyer said whole shoulder

That is a good deal, I haven't seen deals like that out here.

Super store does have bulk pork loin on the flyer ending today for 1.98 per pound though.

They came in a pack of two; big ones. Having cut the bigger of the two shoulders into two, we thought okay, that will do. There was a time we'd have bought more for price alone. For some reason, Pork with crackling isn't in the supermarkets much.

I cooked the big one Sunday and it was brilliant. Fantastic crackling and delicious pork - much as it was the last time we got one as we remembered upon eating it, though much smaller.

It was that good, we thought bugger it, we'll get more. So stepdaughter came back with another twin set today and we cut that into four 5lb pieces. A ridiculous $5 each.

Haven't bought ground meat in a very long time but wanted to make spaghetti with meat in it (usually we skip the meat or add vegetables of some sort) and man its is expensive and it wasn't even the lean variety.

All sold in $7 packages breaks down to $4.25 per pound. And this is No Frills.

@BristolUK - have you seen that Amazon are stocking a lot of Heinz stuff of late? https://www.amazon.ca/Sauces-Gravies-Marinades-Heinz/s?ie=UTF8&page=1&rh=n%3A7352295011%2Cp_89%3AHeinz
Including a creamy pepper sauce that might be similar to what you were looking for a couple of years ago! https://www.amazon.ca/Sauces-Gravies-Marinades-Heinz/s?ie=UTF8&page=1&rh=n%3A7352295011%2Cp_89%3AHeinz

Brilliant, thanks. It does indeed look like it may be it. There's a Bearnaise version too. I'll see if I can minimise the mailing costs by adding a couple of things.
My Fray Bentos steak and kidney pies arrived a few days ago.
