I'll have to check the stores here.

Wholesale Club had Sila 300g "port and fig" dried salami in the cold room for $4 this morning. I bought one, took it home and tried it, then went back and got 5 more. I like my dry salami.

Oh nice, I haven't seen them in any grocery stores here yet though I've been keeping an eye out. I've been able to get them at a local health-food store called Nature's Fare and (ironically) a butcher chain called Meridian Meats. The bratwurst sausages are excellent as well, I fried a couple in a frying pan last night and the smell made me start craving a full english breakfast!

In BC Save on Foods has the burgers (well the Kamloops branch does.)
Olivers tea room in Chilliwack does full english breakfast.

Superstore (Loblaws) has Beef Tenderloin this week @ $10.88 lb.
I actually missed it in the flyer but luckily saw it when I was about to buy chickens @ $1.77 lb.

Of course they rarely have it smaller than logs so I bought one for $72 and it's now cut and Ziplocked into three pieces for roasts or steaks and a fourth part for a likely stroganoff.

No beef tenderloin on sale at my local stores.

No Frills has pork chops boneless for $4.97/lb for the family size club pack.

Ground Beef $3.47/lb

Next flyer starting tomorrow

Loin Combo chops $3.97/lb
Skinless chicken breast $4.97/lb
Bone in striploin steak $9.97/lb
Beef Braising ribs $7.97/lb

Don't know what a whole chicken goes for these days, typically the cooked in store whole chicken is cheaper than a raw whole chicken so I just buy the cooked one every so often.

Here that depends where from.
Certainly the permanent cooked price in Walmart is a good deal if you buy them in pairs (2 for $15) or one plus portions or something. Then they are $7.50 each, and $9 or $10 depending on which other store.
And they are usually a bit bigger than the uncooked ones typically $10-$13.

But the offers come around often enough when they're between $5 and $7, beating all but Walmart but they're only good if you're there and that's rare for me.

I also got over $15 worth of points on my beef

I cashed in $60 worth and left with an extra $35 thanks to three things that were also on great sale.

Average price for a whole raw chicken seems to be in the $12-$15 range for the most part.

Cooked in store is usually around $9.99-$10.99 range if I recall.

I can't cook a chicken at some so it tastes cook like they can in the store, so I rarely buy a whole raw chicken.

Not sure what cooked chickens cost at Wal-Mart, they might be cheaper vs Safeway & Save On but the Wal-Mart isn't in a convenient location and a pain so we never go there.

IMO Costco is the best for value and freshness of rotisserie chickens.

Most likely. We used to get them time to time when we had a membership but we haven't been members for several years now.

Tried Beyond Meat burger patties on Saturday, really not bad. Taste was decent, I was surprised to be honest. Did upset my stomach though, so probably wont try it again.

Except for 1 serving of chips sitting in water in the fridge, I'm out of potatoes. Yesterday I was in Giant Tiger and noticed that the bin with 15lb bags of red potatoes was full, and there were several shopping carts overflowing with bags of potatoes sitting beside it. I get my bread at GT, and I could use another big loaf, so I'll check in tomorrow and see if potatoes went on sale. It's usually about a $3 or $4 saving. They often have sour cream priced to clear and I want some of that as well, for French onion dip. I tried making some with yogurt yesterday and I prefer the sour cream version. My chives still look ok, but they're a week old, so I could check my absent friend's house for him and rip a few handfulls out of the back yard. While I have access to these chives I might as well stop buying green onions; they're going bad on me. Something new to me is using the greens from a bunch of radishes in salad, or even on pizza; I was missing out on a good thing by not eating them.

Trying out a 'new to me' food store for the first time tomorrow. I always knew it was a bit 'different' and then they had a fire.
They've reopened at a new and better and bigger site. I only just realised it's not as inconvenient to get to as I originally thought.

We have a bus that services the two hospitals and I never really appreciated that takes in the site of the new store.

I'm particularly interested in their Bread and this rustic beauty.


The website shows a few things that aren't in the regular stores. Sturgeon Pate. Rhubarb Chutney. Clotted Cream (Hoobloodyray)...

Pomegranate dressing. Pear Jam. Rhubarb Chutney. Red Pepper Jelly. Toulouse Sausages. Chicken Tandoori Sausages. Quebec Cretons (MIL super happy). Rustic Loaf.

Sadly no Clotted Cream, only the Double one which Sobeys has anyway, but I was compensated by Mackays Whisky Marmalade. No need to buy it from Amazon and pay extra for mailing costs anymore.

Oh, yes, eclairs with proper chocolate on top instead of the icing that Sobeys does on theirs.
