    Thanks RFB! I'm a little confused about what day it is lately. If the sale doesn't continue, the bacon will be on sale again soon.

    Raesmom, nice deal on all the meat! Don't be afraid of that whole chicken, Girl! You can do it! ;) Defrost that sucker and throw it in the oven with a whole lot of garlic and adobo.

    Raesmom- wow that is a great deal on the chicken breasts! Love that company, and it's really great quality!

    went to FL on break today and found lots of meats on sale. Picked up a pound and a half of pork ribs for $2.44, 2 bags of Natures Place all natural chicken breast (6 individually wrapped portions) for 3.59 each and saw the whole chickens on markdown again. I saw an 8lb chicken for 7.65! I havent cooked mine yet, I'll do it on a Saturday or Sunday so I wasnt brave enough to buy another one lol. Going to use some of the chicken breast cut into pieces for the tacos tonight. Yay!!!

    Tonight is leftovers to clear the fridge out to start cooking again :)

    Rotisserie chicken cooked on grill, broccoli and baked potato.

    Jdouglas- yes, on sale at HT, but I'm not sure if it goes past today. I'm just happy to find it, and know it will be in a future sale rotation! And lol on the hot dogs. Well, as a few others commented, I also really only like them (and kind of crave them) in the blue box mac & cheese. Don't know that I'd ever try them in a homemade version :-)

    Thank you all. I knew y'all could help me. :-)

    First things first: dinner will be leftover M&C. I caved and put Dad's requested hot dogs in it. Eew. But all in all, once I picked them out, it was still pretty good! ;)

    Ascherer, sour cream and a little white or brown sugar with or without just a drop of vanilla makes an awesome dip for almost any fruit. Full fat sour cream please for this.

    Boars Head usually has their own little section near the delis in most supermarkets and that's where they have their bacon, etc. They keep their stuff separate. RFB, did you say it's on sale somewhere? I'm out of bacon I think.

  • RaleighFoodBlogger May 12, 2015

    CDAVISMK1- I'd never seen it before either. It was right with the other bacon, but a shelf above in my store. They had regular (which I got) and thick cut. Hope you enjoy it. I bought 3 to keep on hand, as one can never have too much bacon :-)

    RFB....I've never seen the Boars Head Bacon. Is it with all the other bacons?
