Just a babble

I have noticed recently that whilst food prices rise the stores are competing with each other more and today I was able to find some good deals to stock the freezers ..Ice cream was $2.99 a tub ,although they have made that tub smaller, it was Dreyers which we like so I got a few .they are usually$ 5.99 now and thats in Ralph's...pizza always on offer, and also the sirloin is on offer up front before the Labor day grill off  .so I spent a bit more and got the stuff early ..

I just watched on the news, though.  Expect higher prices for basic commodities in the foods department.  This is mainly due to an already bad economy and the fierce drought that has brought many farmers and ranchers to their knees.

Dried beans in the pantry, if you can eat beans, ought to help.  It's not enough on its own for most people, but it's a whole lot more affordable than buying beans by the can.  Beans are an excellent and nutritious protein filler to add to your meat dishes.  It's a good way to stretch the budget and the beans do have fiber.  Black beans go best with beef dishes.  White beans go best with chicken.  And, red beans can do well with both.  Although, it seems we do need canned beans for the emergency food supplies we should have on hand.  Definitely try to get sufficient supplies before your usual season of bad weather starts approaching.
