Can't say I've ever seen it.
Frozen asparagus is a relatively new item in our stores, cheaper then the fresh variety. Not as good as fresh, but better then no veggies at all.

Frozen comes to about 5/kg vs 11/kg the fresh was going for yesterday on sale.

Superstore had Boneless Cross Rib for $3.99 a few days ago.
Sometimes it makes a really good roast. Today was one of those.

A $12 chunk was too big for one meal for four so we had two-thirds roasted with the other third to be braised or something tomorrow.

Will slow cook with red wine, stock, onions and whatever else I decide to sling in.

$12 for the Roast, plus another $12 - $15 [is my guess] for the bottle of plonk to soak the Roast in?

'Pound for pound' goodness & value, take a box of 10 pack sachet's of 'quick instant quaker oatmeal' for $1.99 ($0.20/serving) at 'No Frills' is more healthy than the 'cross rib roast' meal

I just bought Quaker instant oat 10 pack, 4.79. I have never seen them for 1.99 before, I'd buy a years worth if I did...

$4 for the 1/3rd of the joint (he roasted 2/3rds of it), plus perhaps $7 for a cheap bottle of plonk.



Instant oatmeal is like eating wallpaper paste, disgusting. (Bulk Barn has 'proper' rolled oats on special at $1.09 a pound).

Oh I so agree about instant oatmeal,disgusting and no reason for it to exist. It's not as if rolled oats takes any time to cook.

I often buy a large roast and use the leftovers for a couple of other meals. It works out quite economically.

Regular bag of oatmeal tastes the same to me, I must be missing something...

Get rolled oats not ground up oatmeal. It has texture and flavour.

I don't think many dieticians will agree. 'Proper' oats, perhaps but not the quick sugary version.

$12 for the Roast, plus another $12 - $15 [is my guess] for the bottle of plonk to soak the Roast in?

Nice to see someone paying attention.

Not even a bottle of wine. Well, not one anyway. I always save what's not drunk from a bottle and use it for cooking or adding to gravy. Currently have some white left, some rose and a couple of reds.

I think the only $7 wine available here is the alcohol free stuff in the supermarket.

The original quaker oats instant has no sugar.

The flavored ones do of course, and the instant original has extra stuff the normal version doesn't have.

The old fashioned original and steel cut from quaker both have 1g of sugar per 40g serving.

Nice try.

You had me going for a minute, until I saw it was only 250 ml size.

Ontario prices are a couple of bucks less than here. Certainly at the amounts I pay.

Unfortunately my tastes have changed and I struggle to find something I like these days. That's why I often have some left.

NB Liquor doesn't stock most of those I always found reliable.
