Have you seen some of those sales going on at the grocery stores? I've been looking through the sales fliers and drooling.
I've been reading a lot of economic news online lately. There is great debate over whether we are heading for inflation or deflation (or both). The latest 1% decline in prices is not as good as it sounds. As Christopher (who just finished Econ last semester) reminded me, prices usually go up in a Recession and down in a Depression. Hmmm...
On that cheery thought, they do seem to be in agreement that food prices are continuing to go up. So there are lots and lots of reasons to deepen your pantry. Not the very least of which is this... it is insurance you can eat... and the prices are good for many items right now.
I so often remember listening to the generation before me talking about foods that were hard to get in the Depression and WWII. Things like sugar and coffee.
As for us, hubby went to another food pantry this morning and brought home more canned goods. This one was from the Salvation Army and they had a lot more healthier options than others. We are thankful for everything.
I used some of the venison we had been given this week. My friend had told me to try the venison meat that can be sliced into steaks, which I did. I marinated them as she suggested and they were quite good!
Don't forget to feed the pantry this week and perhaps get an extra turkey on sale for the freezer. :)
