Beef, Kidneys & Good Food

Where do you buy your meat if you are a meat eater??? I like to buy some of our meat at our local Vietnamese Supermarket.

Its so much cheaper than the stupidmarkets and also no foam trays wrapped in plastic. Though to make it even better, if I got the meat wrapped in butcher paper, I'd be even happier.

Kilo of tender gravy beef for $6.59........ way cheaper.
The 3 lamb kidneys were $0.76......

At the stupidmarket last time I paid $1.98 for 3 in a pack. Way over priced in my books.

Now the trick is to get the most out of the meat.

Beef curry and rice, two meals for me.

Steak & kidney with vegies, equals two meals for Pat.

Without including the rice and vegies, $7.35 divided into 4 meals ....$1.8375 for each meal. Can't get much cheaper than that.

By looking outside the stupidmarkets in the smaller shops and markets, there is still cheaper food to be bought.

Pat & I are on a disability pension and so we need to account every cent. So where I can help other people by sharing our shopping & kitchen skills, I will.

Also with the vegies soon to be available for harvesting in the weeks to come from our little vegie patch, it'll be even cheaper.

Until next time.... hoo roo

WTG Lucky!

Have you ever thought about doing voluntary work for a welfare agency to teach their clients how to make mince go 50 different ways etc?

Your skills in making every cent count in meals is obvious, you would be a great assset.

Well done!

Blessings :)
