Just wanted to show yall what I did today on my shopping for meat. If all this had not been on sale I would not have gotten half of this stuff.

 Harveys Supermarket has the best sale's on Wed. So today I went shopping for Easter dinner and came home with a smile on face because I finally got some good sale's.

Here's what I got today.

Beef Cube Streak    $ 20.62           $ 1.99 lb

Beef Chuck Roast   $ 8.92              $ 1.99 lb

Ground Chuck         $ 22.00            $ 2.20 lb

Whole Turkey          $  9.92             $ .69lb

Fryer Leg Quarters  $ 9.80              $ .49lb

Whole Smoke Ham  $ 12.73          $ .99lb

Sliced Smoked Ham $ 12.72         $ .99lb

So once I got home I had to bag all my meats up into meal size and here's what I got out of all of this.

Beef Cube Steak    9 meals with 6 pieces to each pack

Chuck Roast           1 meal

Ground Chuck         9 meals

Turkey                      1 meal

Chicken                    14 meals with 8 pieces to each pack

Smoked Ham          1 meal for Easter Dinner

Sliced smoked ham  15 meals.

Here's what I did on the chicken Quarters....I cut the leg, thigh and back bone off. I had 11 bags with the leg and thighs and then 4 bags with the back bones to make broth for like noodles or rice. So that's how I got my 14 meals of chicken.

Now on the ham I cut the ham up into pieces to fry for breakfast. I had 11 bags for breakfast and then I have 4 bags for seasoning things like peas with so there's another 15 meals.

So there you have it, for $ 96.71 you have 41 meals with meat making it around $ 2.12 to have meat at each meal.

The turkey I got, I am thinking about canning it. So if I do it will make more than 1 meal, but for now I am counting it as only for 1 meal.

I only buy when there is a sale on the meats to help save me some money.
