    jdouglas - nope - none in the ads at least. Sorry. :-( If you are going to be near an Aldi, they had a decent everyday price last time I checked. Thanks again for the Clayton asparagus info. I posted it in the share the deals section.

    Does anyone have eggs on sale this week? After all the cake baking, my supply is getting kind of low.
