Rob wanted to go driving around in his new car today, so I conned him into taking me to Costco. At Costco I took bodenstaz‘s advice and picked up a FoodSaver™ vacuum sealer appliance thingy and an extra box of FoodSaver™ freezer baggie thingies. (Note: until just this second I didn’t realize there were about 800000 different FoodSaver™ products…)
Then we hit the Costco Meat Department, where I basically lost my mind. Keeping in mind our limited freezer space (one standard fridge’s worth), I picked up 12 chicken breast (Lilydale!), 10 huge 1.5″ thick cut boneless porkchops, 4 huge pork tenderloin, 2 massive racks of babyback ribs, and three thick ribeye steaks. For an idea of the prices, the 10 porkchops cost $17.
Anyhow, we’ve got a lot of meat now, and it’s all nicely sealed up and chillin’ in the freezer (except the steaks — those are for tonight with a nice caesar salad and some boiled potatoes with butter). Yum.
Meat! Lots and lots of inexpensive meat! Yay!
