Head in the Clouds

November 1st, 2007 at 08:34 am

I have seriously been so out of it lately, my head is in the clouds. My focus just is not on financial things at the moment. But I got a good deal today so I thought I should trot my sorry self over here and blog about it.

There's a new place that just opened up in my county (Whatcom) and they deliver. It's free range, steroid free, and hormone free protein, frozen and vacuum sealed. It's not organic but it is as close as you can get to it without being it and with delivery I don't have to worry about it sitting in the trunk for the long drive from town. It should last quite awhile when interspersed with the chicken and fish in the freezer already.

Other than eggs and cheese, I shouldn't have to purchase protein again for a couple of months. So even though it was more than half my monthly food budget in one go, I think it was well worth the expense.

They sell it by the case and I ended up with 55 beef steaks for $150. Very good portion sizes, too, no skimping. That works out to $2.72 per steak. It was T-bone and rib-eye, New York strip, and filet mignon as well as two other cuts I can't remember and I'm too lazy to go and get the brochure. Pretty good when the recent sale price on a plain old chuck roast was $2.99 this week.

Whenever I need more I just call them, order, and they put me on their delivery route for that week. The $150 a case is an introductory price for a year. Not sure what I'll do if it isn't a renewable special offer, because I don't want to go up to the $300 it is supposed to be after that.

Anyway, it's nice to find a good source of beef without having to buy a side of beef and find room for it in the freezers.

I won't use them for chicken since it's all white meat and we all prefer dark or seafood because we don't eat most of what is offered and we don't eat enough pork to even think about that. But for beef, definitely.
