Loblaws are also doing pork shoulder and leg roasts for 99c/lb. I just got there when they were clearing there shelfs, I guess there is a delivery coming and with no snow there has been little buisness, so we got beef hearts at 1/3 of the usual $2/lb and the same for pork hearts, best deals today were pork hocks $3.30-$3.45 with $3 off coupons and there value pack chicken thighs special $2.14/kg in packs of $5-6 again with $3 coupons. I loaded up and now i'm in a panic, I have left some in a plastic storage bin as it's -11 outside. I need to remove the junk thats been living on my freezer for the past 3 years and make room, Rileys sugestion was to leave it on the kitchen floor and he'll work out a way to store it. :laughing:

Actually, now I think about it, I think it was Doninion/A&P, not sure as I was waiting for my wife to have her hair done and I went to all the local supermarkets looking for specials and salad. Anyhow, one of them 2 have the deals, it might even be loblaws for the Pork but I already cleaned out the local IGA and I know A&P are the only other place here to offer hearts. One woman at the checkout asked me how I would cook the hearts, i said I jsut throw them on the mat and if the dog like it warmed up he just breathes on it for a while, she asked about the raw diet and then went and got a few pork hearts as a treat for her dog. I didn't want to venture into the bones part of it all. But she's going to have one happy dog :dog: looking and the bag of kibbles and bits it usually gets. :yuck:

It's funny, with my scrubs and a stethoscope around my neck, people think I'm some kind of an authority :shrug:

Lol TD, the meat guy and I are best buds at my local Provigo so I get away with a few things. Small town grocery stores are easier to manipulate. ;)

I also think that the small-town restaurant owners don't all flock to the supermarket to fill their trucks with on-sale meats :eek: ... they do this here in Mtl, hence the qty restrictions on some sale items. many things are better in a small town! :D :crazy:
