      Agreed, I may shovel the snow off the grass, cut it and make a salad

    I guess two things come to mind, the citizens are now a captive audience as they can't jump over into the States, and with rising healthcare costs they are collecting it somehow. I miss going up north, but prices like that would make me pack a sack lunch!

        Beans and rice are reported to make up a complete protein. Or was the rice and beans?

        Mr. Bones, the price of beans and rice went up in price when there was a meat shortage back in the early 70's.

        That is what I would call highway robbery! I hope you find some affordable protein, so that you can eat, and also continue to support your BBQ and culinary pursuits.

          So how's the rabbit hunting around there? Looks like it may be time to source some wild protein.

                I'm thinking meat packers have spent millions to take Covid precautions and handed the costs right on down the line to consumers.
                I get that but they could have eased us into it instead of a gut punch.
                Like I said above there was another bunker of chicken breasts that was probably half the price on this bunker. I know which one I'm parking at next time.

              If my math is correct (not a sure thing at all!) that's about $8.20 US/lb. Very expensive.
