A couple of months ago, after watching some enlightening documentaries, we decided to cut meat out of our diet. Not totally, we’re definitely not vegetarians, and my carnivore-hunting husband could never commit to such a thing. However, I quit buying commercially processed meat during my weekly shopping trips and I no longer build our meals around a meat source.
We still enjoy meat every once in a while which is how I stumbled upon this deal. I added bison chili to our weekly meal plan and headed to the meat department. I was immediately drawn to the sale tag in front of the organic grass fed ground beef. At first I thought maybe it was a mistake so I asked the store employee walking by. He confirmed the price and I started throwing pound after pound of meat in my cart. I hit the Organic Grass Fed Ground Beef Jackpot! Who cares that I haven’t been cooking with meat much. I couldn’t pass up a good sale! It was either $1.99/lb for beef or $9.99/lb for bison. Yep, no question!
So, now we have 25 pounds of beef in the freezer for our future enjoyment. Score!
Update: May 22, 2014 – We just finished off the last of our ground beef a few weeks ago. That lasted us a good 9 months! Can’t beat that 🙂
