Got the extra pack of ribs and brined them 24 hrs (salt, pepper, molasses, brown sugar, red chili, sriracha, bay leaves) and now have the smoker going in the back yard full of pork ribs and hot Italian sausage.

Work & some personal stuff saw me unable to do my usual grocery shop this week; I usually shop 3/4 stores for best offers. Also bought a lot of out of season stuff I wouldn't usually look at unless on special offer.

I ended up rushing through a not-local Walmart:

1 dozen large eggs: 3.26$
1lb sweet potatoes: 1.54$
.5 lb Cremini mushrooms: 2.17$
3.3 lb chicken thighs: 10$ (Special offer)
16 Italian sausages: 10$ (Special offer)
1l EVOO: 4.97$
2 x 796ml canned tomatoes: 1$ each
3 heads garlic: 0.67$
1 lb butter: 3.97$
1 Fake Camembert: 3.97$
500ml half & half: 3.02$
1lb courgettes: 3.99$
1lb red peppers: 3.37$
1 aubergine (just under 1lb): 3.11$
1lb "vine-ripened" tomatoes: 2.39$
2 bunches fresh spinach: 2.47$
1lb bacon: 2.97$

Some of it is expensive, some not bad so I suppose it averages out. Depending on how far you have to travel to save sometimes it isn't worth it to chase a sale.

Enough hot peppers and onions to keep them clean as a whistle.

Sometimes I wonder if there are spies in the alternative camps as the two main supermarkets here often have the same products on offer, albeit not the same prices. But every now and then I see this...

From the latest flyers arriving yesterday:
Asparagus Superstore $2.99/Sobeys $3.99
Top Sirloin $4.88/ $5.99
Cauliflower $2.99/no offer but $6.99 last week.

Big Sobeys ad in today's paper
Asparagus $2.99, Top Sirloin $4.88, Cauli $2.49,

I'd love to experiment with goat, especially at that price.
A pub near where I used to work in St Pauls did goat curry for lunch. Very nice. I had goat stew (more casserole) in a tiny village restaurant on Rhodes and that was delicious.
